Lewis Hamilton gets second crack at F1 championship in Mexico

Lewis Hamilton gets second crack at F1 championship in Mexico

Red Bull driver Max Verstappen, who won the Mexican Grand Prix in 2017, is hoping to prevent Lewis Hamilton's coronation by claiming back-to-back victories in Mexico City.

Hamilton has spoken repeatedly over the last 18 months of the satisfaction he takes from battling with Vettel - although, having gone through nerve-jangling final-race showdowns in the past, the Englishman said he would still much rather wrap up the title as early as he could.

But who else has won it in his lifetime? And every one after that has got harder and harder, even though you are improving. "My goal is to try to win the race this weekend", he told reporters on Thursday.

Hamilton said after finishing only third from pole in the US GP he had faced multiple problems, and has now elaborated on the issue that was originally a mystery when he addressed the media post-race.

"The first one felt incredibly hard already but from then on it just got harder and harder to win a championship".

Hamilton has a total of 346 points this season to Vettel's 276 points. "I look forward to many more years of us racing together right at the top".

Vettel's biggest mistake this season came at...

Everson Griffen apologizes, says he's 'happy to be back' with Minnesota Vikings
Make no mistake, though: Being back in the meeting rooms and on the practice field with the Vikings was a cathartic experience. In an Instagram post to his 52,000 followers last month, Griffen promised to return as a "much-improved" person and player .

On paper, Hamilton requires only five points to draw level with the legendary five-time champion Juan Manuel Fangio in the record books with five world championships, leaving only Michael Schumacher, on seven, to catch.

Vettel started on pole in Mexico a year ago but collided with Hamilton at the start, dropping to 19th before fighting back to finish fourth.

Looking at the potential victors of the Mexican Grand Prix, Red Bull can surely be counted as a contender alongside Ferrari and Mercedes. "And it's just the result of mistakes, and you're never going to beat Lewis like that, because Lewis doesn't make mistakes". "As long as you get it done".

Explaining his outlook, he said: "It's not my first rodeo". "It's just the place I'm in my life I guess. I know it's happened a few times but I certainly don't want to tell Seb how to drive a racing auto", he added.

That means that Hamilton needs to score less than 5 points during the next three races.

"They took the auto apart in the morning, and when they put it back together, the vehicle was unbalanced", Hamilton told reporters.

"Realistically, we know it's our last shot at winning a race this year".
