Formula One is back in Mexico City for the first time since 2019. The Mexican Grand Prix was canceled last year due to COVID-19 but is back on Sunday, November 7 2021 at Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez. The race starts at 2 p.m. ET and will air on ABC.

Valtteri Bottas will start the Mexican Grand Prix on pole after Mercedes found some surprising performance in qualifying. Max Verstappen had been favorite to triumph for Red Bull, and extend his title advantage over Lewis Hamilton. The Dutchman star heads to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez boasting a 12-point lead over his key rival with just five races remaining in a fascinating 2021 Formula 1 championship battle.

Both drivers have taken victory at this circuit on two previous occasions — Hamilton in 2016 and 2019 and Verstappen in 2017 and 2018 — and both men are significant favorites to make it to the top step of the podium on Sunday evening.

What has Hamilton said?

“We are going to the next two tracks which are very strong circuits for Red Bull [Mexico and Brazil] so it is going to be tough,” Hamilton said after the conclusion of the race in Texas last time out.

“We will just try and minimize how strong they can be compared to us, and see if we can do a better job.

“I am trying not to think about it at the moment. I am living in the moment and will take it one race at a time.”

What has Verstappen said?

In an interview with Gentleman’s Journal, Verstappen addressed the pair’s rivalry, saying “We’re how competitors should be.”

“We’re not exactly going to have dinner together but that’s fine. You have that competitive spirit and we always try to beat each other on track but also try to respect each other off track as well.

“So far there have been some tense moments, but overall it’s been all right.”
