You’d be forgiven for thinking this was a Mexican GP qualifying event that was going to be dominated by Red Bull given their performance on Friday and the lack of pace Mercedes seemed to suffer. However, in FP3 and qualifying, Red Bull were clearly nursing a rear wing issue and will start behind the Mercedes duo of Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton respectively.
