F1 Qualifying Live Updates, Highlights from the 2022 Mexican Grand Prix

The championships could already be decided for 2022, but this weekend’s Mexican Grand Prix is ​​still full of intrigue.

Max Verstappen is aiming to set a new record of 14 race wins in a single season and cement his status as the world’s leading driver.

Lewis Hamilton, meanwhile, will hope he doesn’t finish a season without a Grand Prix win for the first time in his career. Given how close he was in the United States last week, he will be optimistic about his chances.

The Sporting News brings you the latest from qualifying at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City.

F1 Qualifying Live Commentary, Highlights from the Mexican Grand Prix

START Q2: We’re on the road again. Can Verstappen respond to Hamilton’s threat?

END OF Q1: Hamilton drives the fastest! The seven-time champion is around five hundredths of a second ahead of Verstappen. Magnussen just about saved himself there in the Haas, although his teammate retires along with the Aston and Williams cars.

Eliminated drivers:

Michael sSchumacher
Sebastian Vettel
lance walk
Alex Albon
Nicholas Latifi

6 minutes before Q1: Verstappen completely lost the front of the car at the start of his first fast lap. His second was much better – 1:19:222 puts him in first place, ahead of Leclerc and Hamilton. Valtteri Bottas, who took a surprise pole here last year, has just finished third fastest.

10 minutes before Q1: Alex Albon is the first man to go under 1:21, just ahead of the Haas drivers. Perez is behind Albon after the first leg of his own flying lap, but the Red Bull loses almost half a second in that tough middle section before hitting 1:20:408. Leclerc then promptly goes almost a second faster!

START OF Q1: So, let’s go! Kevin Magnussen and Mick Schumacher are the first drivers on the racetrack.

10 minutes walk: It’s almost time for Q1! I hope you are all feeling as optimistic as this man… (sorry)

20 minutes left: Could Sergio Perez have a home grand prix to remember? The Red Bull driver is third in the table, but only two points behind Leclerc. A win here would go a long way towards securing a top two finish for the Constructors’ Masters.

45 minutes left: The high altitude of the Mexico City circuit seems to help Mercedes given the downforce benefits it brings. However, Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc complained of serious understeer issues as he set the fourth fastest time in FP3. He wasn’t the only one finding things difficult, either.

1 hour to go: Hello and welcome to today’s live broadcast of qualifying for the Mexican Grand Prix. Final practice ended in a Mercedes one-two, with George Russell ahead of Lewis Hamilton. Could they repeat the feat of locking out the front row of the grid?
