Quali will be tight and it will be critical. Can't come from P6 to P1 here.

Not going to lie, my least favorite track on the calendar. Great crowd though.

Wouldn't be surprised if Mercedes gives RB a little scare here.

It's impossible to follow at this circuit. Lap 1 is usually the highlight.

Checo, Checo, Checo, Checo, Checo, Checo, Checo.

Checocheco.

Checherthechecocheco.

It will be an exhausting weekend with this mantra blurted through everything, everywhere all the time.

And yes, qualy will be close and Merc has a real chance here.

Merc will have to run higher after the DSQ?

Mexico is a smooth track. They don't have to run higher. In fact, Merc might run even lower than COTA in Mexico. When we said Merc was running low, we just meant "lower than others", but COTA still requires higher ride heights due to the amount of bumps.

Merc will be cautious thats for certain. They wont want to get caught out for a second week. (same for Ferrari)

Again, be interesting to see where the upgrades put them and whether the likes of RB dont need to run a monster truck stance to cover the bumps in the track.

Even W13 could run slammed to the ground at Mexico 22

So W14, rb19 etc will all run on the ground here. The track is smooth and porpoising doesn't trigger because little downforce is generated

The question here is....how many cars will just go straight? Under the current rule set if they just go straight they win much more than the 5sec penalty you will get.
I am curious if they take actions to prevent this.

Qualifying should be very close. Red Bull's efficiency won't be much of a factor here. Alpine will be strong, maybe AM too depending on that floor upgrade from Austin?

The race will be terrible as it always is here, passing is just too difficult. Mercedes might have an other opportunity to win if they get things right this time.

Relative to the teams that ran legal set-ups their car should be higher, though in absolute terms everyone could be lower.
