Posted: 7 November 2021 5:09 pm

Flying Dutchman Max Verstappen can tighten his grip on the world championship with a win in this weekend's Mexican GP.

SUMMARY: The Mexican F1 Grand Prix is on Fox Sports. If you are already a Foxtel customer, you are all set. If not, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Red Bull ace Max Verstappen has had all the answers over championship rival Lewis Hamilton recently and will be well aware of what a win in Mexico will mean for his world title ambitions.

Verstappen leads Hamilton by 12 points with 5 races remaining on the 2021 calendar, stretching his tight lead over 7-time drivers' champion Hamilton with a win in the US Grand Prix in Austin a fortnight ago.

The racing has been enthralling all season and Mexico should be no different. Here's how you can catch the action.

When is F1 Mexico?

This grand prix schedule is being held from 6–8 November. The race gets underway at 6am AEDT on Monday 8 November.

Who will win F1 Mexico?

Once again, it looks like a race between Hamilton and Verstappen, who have shared the honours across the last 4 Mexican GPs. Hamilton won the last meeting here in 2019 after back-to-back Verstappen wins in 2017 and 2018 which came after Hamilton won the race in 2016. The 2020 edition was cancelled due to the pandemic.

The drivers' championship remains on a knife edge, as it has all season, and it would be no surprise to see Hamilton claw back some or all of Verstappen's 12-point lead here. The British great needs to at some point very soon, otherwise this championship will slip from his grasp.

Verstappen's Red Bull has looked for much of the second half of this year to have the pace over Hamilton's Mercedes. Because of that, we'll stick with the Dutchman who we think will head into the next GP – Brazil a week from now – with a title on his mind.
