Formula 1 Gran Premio De La Ciudad De México 2021

British driver Sir Lewis Hamilton has a 12 points deficit from Red Bull Racing’s Max Verstappen. However, with four races still to go after Mexico, Hamilton still has a chance to gain those crucial championship points and retake the championship lead.
