The Mexico City Grand Prix is the first F1 race in a triple-header as the title race nears its end, but what is the start time for F1 in Mexico this weekend?

Is Verstappen now title favourite?

Max Verstappen took his eighth win of the season last time out in the United States.

The Red Bull driver now leads the standings by 12 points from rival Lewis Hamilton.

Including this weekend’s race, there are five grands prix remaining in the season.

Mexico, and indeed Brazil next weekend, are both what can be termed as ‘Red Bull tracks.’

The high altitude works better in Red Bull’s favour, with Hamilton still possibly needing to take yet another new Mercedes engine component.

Hamilton is the defending race winner, having taken the spoils in the last visit to Mexico in 2019.

He also won in 2016 and is level with Verstappen on two wins in Mexico.

The Dutchman’s two came in 2017 and 2018 – with Nico Rosberg taking the other in 2015 when the race returned to the calendar.
