This is the starting grid of the Mexican GP

Valtteri Bottas gave the surprise by being the fastest in the qualifying session of the Mexican GP , so he will face the race from pole. Alongside him, on the front row of the grid will be his teammate Lewis Hamilton . And is that Mercedes surprised Red Bull in Q3, so Max Verstappen and Sergio Pérez , who were hurt by Yuki Tsunoda , will occupy the second row of the grid as third and fourth respectively. With five races to go to the end of the World Cup, Verstappen leads Hamilton by 12 points in the Formula 1 World Championship standings, so he will seek to do a double with his two drivers.

Tsunoda forgot about the drivers behind him, frustrating his flying lap as soon as he gave his slipstream to Pierre Gasly . In this way he helped his teammate to finish the qualifying session in fifth position ahead of Carlos Sainz . After the Madrid driver, Daniel Ricciardo , Charles Leclerc , Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen will be on the grid for the Mexican GP.

Antonio Giovinazzi will start eleventh and Fernando Alonso will start twelfth. Despite having finished the qualifying session in sixteenth position, the Asturian has gained four positions ahead of the Mexican GP . And it is that Alonso has benefited from the fact that up to four drivers who had qualified ahead of him have been penalized for having changed the power unit.
