F1: UK Mexico City Grand Prix race start time, grid positions and how can I watch it on TV today?


he second half of a double header completes Formula One’s time in North America this season with today’s Mexico City Grand Prix.

It may have been a familiar result in Austin last weekend, but there was plenty of entertainment as Max Verstappen scored his 13th victory of 2022, closing out the Red Bull Constructors’ Championship in the process.

Second place from Lewis Hamilton and a decent performance from Ferrari, including pole position from Carlos Sainz before being sent off by George Russell on the first lap, should mean plenty of competition at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

However, Verstappen has won three of the last four at the Mexican altitude and will be the favorite to do so again.
