World champion Max Verstappen CRUISES to a record 14th victory of the season at the Mexican Grand Prix, with Lewis Hamilton finishing second and home favourite Sergio Perez taking third

MaxĀ Verstappen won the Mexican Grand Prix, a tactical battle, the dullest race of the year, a triumph of speed and strategy by Red Bull, a personal milestone for the best driver in the world today, and more pain for Lewis Hamilton. By lap 45, Verstappenā€™s lead was up to 10sec precisely. Hamilton now 11.5 seconds off of Verstappen, and you begin to think that maybe the hards weren’t the right decision. The gap between Hamilton and Vertstappen is down to 6.5 seconds but Russell still leads the race. Hamilton now leads the race from Russell, Verstappen and the Ferraris lead by Sainz. He’s now down to only 2 seconds from Hamilton, but to be fair Verstappen has gone 22 laps on those soft tyres. Hamilton has built a 3.6 second lead over Perez, but is slipping further back from Verstappen. Hamilton now is starting to make back time on Verstappen and they look to be running at more or less the same pace in the last couple of laps. Russell’s gap to Perez is now down to just over 2 seconds. Hamilton now has fastest lap, but he doesn’t look to be taking too much out of Verstappen – who is on the softs. It’s hard to look past Verstappen – he has been utterly dominant all season.
