2023 F1 Mexican GP – How to watch, session timings and more

Formula 1 continues the action with the second leg of a triple-header, the Mexican Grand Prix, that hosts the 19th round of the 2023 season.

The campaign keeps up its relentless pace by heading straight from the Circuit of the Americas to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez for the Mexican round.

Despite brake concerns with his Red Bull F1 car in Austin, Max Verstappen remains in dominant form having won both the sprint race and the grand prix last time out – marking his 50th career win and 15th of the season so far.

But the major talking point came post-race when Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc were both disqualified for excessive car plank wear, which meant the Mercedes driver lost his runner-up result and the Ferrari driver dropped out of sixth place.

An acute impact of the exclusions saw Sergio Perez’s gap to Hamilton for second in the drivers’ standings grow to 39 points with four rounds remaining.
