After being absent from the 2020 season calendar due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Formula 1 returns to racing in Mexico this weekend.

One of the best races on the calendar because of its amazing atmosphere, Mexico City will host another segment of this year’s enthralling title battle between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton. 

Verstappen won last time out at the Circuit of the Americas, extending his lead to 12 points over Hamilton.

Mexico has traditionally been a strong race for Red Bull relative to Mercedes so it could be a huge step for Verstappen in winning his maiden title. 

Sergio Perez will be looking to finish on the podium for the first time in front of his home crowd as he looks to close the gap to Valtteri Bottas in the race for third in the F1 drivers' championship.

The battle for third in the constructors' is tight with just 3.5 points between McLaren and Ferrari.

It looks set for another great weekend of action in F1.
