Max Verstappen WINS Mexico City Grand Prix to extend gap to second-placed Lewis Hamilton in the world title race to 19 points – after Brit’s team-mate Valtteri Bottas lost the lead from pole on first corner

It was a fleeting moment of high-speed magic, a controlled piece of machismo in Mexico City – and it might just symbolise the beginning of the end of Lewis Hamilton’s dreams of an eighth world title. LAP 60/71: Perez is now under a second behind Hamilton, that’s of course giving him DRS too. LAP 57/71: The gap is now under two seconds between Hamilton and Perez… LAP 41/71: Verstappen has picked up his pace from Hamilton, the gap is now just under 10 seconds. LAP 33/71: Verstappen pits and he emerges in the gap between Perez and Hamilton. LAP 32/71: Perez has dropped 12 seconds behind Verstappen, but should he pit now he will be four second behind Hamilton. LAP 14/71: Hamilton is now five seconds down on Verstappen, with Perez now closing in on him.
