Mexican Grand Prix: Will Checo be the home hero?

As the adrenaline from the Texas showdown begins to ebb, the F1 carnival heads to Mexico. With Max Verstappen's championship all neatly tied up, all eyes will be on home hero Sergio Checo Perez who is currently is second place on the table. Here’s your preview of what promises to be another edge-of-the-seat spectacle

Perez's Homecoming Hopes

Few tracks resonate with a driver's heart as this one does for Checo. He is carrying the weight of expectation into his hometown, and with his track record in Mexico combined with Red Bull's indomitable form, it looks good. Can he reignite his magic and stand atop amidst roaring chants of his name? Time will tell.

Aston's Ambition vs. McLaren’s Momentum

While McLaren's recent surge, especially with their magic run in Austin, has painted a bright papaya picture, Aston Martin isn't far behind. Their latest upgrades hint at untapped potential, and a power-packed performance in Mexico might swing the pendulum their way. 

Sargeant's Steady Ascent

After his star-spangled display in Austin, Logan Sargeant is now in the spotlight. With a point-scoring finish under his belt, the pressure is on to replicate or even top that performance in Mexico. A stellar drive here could very well secure his seat for 2024.

Rookies Ready to Roll

From Frederik Vesti's debut in the Mercedes to Ollie Bearman's spin with Haas, it's time for these rookies to shine and lay their claim for the big leagues. Watch out for these youngsters as they tear down the track, their engines echoing their ambitions.

As always, you can never write off seven-time world champion Lewis Hamilton, a dark horse following the Austin antics. Of course, the off-track fiasco will be behind him. It is the same with the Prancing Horse, who will look to regain some of their spirit in Mexico.

Will Charles Leclerc’s sad run finally end? Will Daniel Ricciardo and Alpha Tauri finally have the comeback they’ve been praying for? Lots to look forward to and a lot more (ahem, P2) at stake.
