Mexico Grand Prix betting tips: Verstappen can dominate again
Mexico Grand Prix betting tips, odds and preview
The drivers’ and constructors’ titles may already be decided, but there is still plenty to fight for as Formula One arrives in Mexico.
Champion Max Verstappen helped seal Red Bull a first constructors’ title in nine years with a thrilling win at the United States Grand Prix last week and is favourite for another victory at 4/6.
Here we pick out some Mexico Grand Prix betting tips for Sunday’s race.
Verstappen out to make history
Such has been Verstappen’s dominance in winning his second world championship in a row, he has matched Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher’s record of 13 race wins in a season and has three races to break that tally.
His first shot at doing so comes at a track where he has enjoyed great success, with the Dutchman bidding for a fourth win in just seven races since Mexico returned to the F1 calendar in 2015.

He won last year’s race by over 16 seconds from Lewis Hamilton and Verstappen will be full of confidence that he can deliver another dominant display.
A Verstappen win by over 11 seconds is available at 13/10.
Leclerc and Perez battle for second
Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc regained second place in the drivers’ standings with his third-placed finish in the USA after an impressive drive from 12th on the grid.
The Monegasque is just two points clear of Red Bull’s Sergio Perez who will take to the track in Mexico hoping to delight a raucous home crowd.
Leclerc and Perez appear locked in a scrap to finish second, with fourth-placed George Russell 47 points adrift of the Mexican.
Can Mercedes get a win on the board?
Lewis Hamilton has just three races remaining to extend his record of having won a race in every single season of his career.
The seven-time world champion’s previously-dominant Mercedes car is yet to secure a victory this campaign, but the team have appeared closer to ending that run in recent races.

Hamilton held the lead in Austin but was pipped towards the end by Verstappen and had to settle for second.
He still trails his new team-mate and compatriot Russell in the standings by 20 points and it would represent a major coup for Russell to win that battle in his first season with the team.
