Max Verstappen’s victory in the United States Grand Prix last week means he equals the record for most wins by a driver in a Formula 1 season. With three rounds to go and having won seven of the last eight, it would be a shock that if he doesn’t break the record.

The Mexico City Grand Prix concludes the second leg of a North American F1 showdown as we approach the end of the 2022 season.

  • Chances of Overtaking: At the end of the long straight is the best chance as this is one of the biggest braking areas on the track. If you fail, entering the tight fourth turn is also an option. However, the middle and end of the lap are quite tight and twisty and close following is difficult. The transition is naturally even more difficult.
