While Verstappen claimed his 50th F1 victory, the Circuit of The Americas had its share of surprises this year, with off-track drama eclipsing the on-track action, as Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc faced unexpected disqualifications.
Turns out not all is fair in speed and racing. Detailed post-race inspections threw Hamilton and Leclerc's achievements into the spotlight, with technical breaches leading to disqualifications for both. It's an FIA plot twist that no one saw coming.
With the echoes of the US Grand Prix still fresh, the world now looks to Mexico. What twists and turns await, only this weekend will tell.
