Mexico   27 Oct
Gran Primo de Mexico
Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, Mexico City, Mexico
Race Distance: 71 laps, 305.354 km

THE MEXICAN GP returns to the Hermanos Rodriguez circuit in Mexico City in 2015 after a 23 year hiatus. At an altitude of over 7,300 feet, the course in Mexico is by car the highest event on the schedule, creating a challenge for aero downforce and engine power due to the 20% less dense atmosphere. However, with the advent of the turbo-hybrid era, power is far more available to modern F1 cars than downforce, making the car harder and twitchier to drive on the recently paved surface.
In the end Pole Position, initially won by Max Verstappen before he was penalized for not lifting on a yellow, then given to Charles Leclerc who had placed second, wasn't the path to a Mexico GP victory, which went instead to Lewis Hamilton in a Mercedes not expected to challenge this weekend. Sebastian Vettel couldn't catch Lewis and came second, and Valtteri Bottas gave Mercedes a good third.

subasurf wins the round by being the only one to pick both Mercedes cars, David D takes second, and Georgethefierce is third. All three make small moves up in the standings as a result.

However, the top four haven't changed and remain curley, DP#1, Reno Stack and EL SLATSO!!!

We move on to next week's United States Grand Prix, where Lewis Hamilton is a good bet to clinch his sixth F1 Driver's Championship.
