Finally, after a race that saw
some very tough maneuvering, Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes secured his fourth Formula
One win as he came in 9th in the Mexican Grand Prix. The race winner
was Red Bull’s young Max Verstappen who recorded his third Grand Prix win. Polesitter
Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari managed a 4th position.
Hamilton and Vettel came
together at the start, dropping both men to the back, and though the Ferrari
driver recovered to fourth, Hamilton’s 2 points from his 9th
standing was good enough to wrap things up with two rounds to go. Vettel needed
16 points to maintain his title hopes, and that meant second place, which was taken
away by Valtteri Bottas.

Verstappen shared the podium with
Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas (2nd) and Ferrari’s Kimi Raikkonen (3rd).
They were followed by Vettel, Esteban Ocon of Force India, Williams’ Lance Stroll, Sergo Perez of Force
India, Haas’s Kevin Magnussen, Hamilton and McLaren’s Fernando Alonso to make
up the first ten in the race..
Sahara Force India scored 16
points in the Mexican Grand Prix as the team secured fourth place in the
Constructors’ World Championship for a second consecutive year.
Max Verstappen’s end of season
form continues to go from strength to strength as he took the dominant win in
Mexico City. The Dutchman led from the third corner after a dramatic collision
involving title rivals Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. Hamilton suffered a puncture in the smash but
recovered from last place to finish ninth and claim his fourth world title
ahead of Vettel, who crossed the line in fourth.
With all the drama behind him,
Verstappen cruised to the chequered flag in front of Valtteri Bottas and Kimi
Räikkönen and added to his previous victories in Spain last year and Malaysia
earlier in October.
Even though Verstappen
dominated the race to score a resounding win, but then all eyes were inevitably
on the two title seekers Vettel and Hamilton as they touched on the opening lap.
The story thereafter was not just about the Dutchman’s superb victory but a lot
on how Hamilton recovered from last place to win the coveted title.
