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