Yet, while Red Bull will be encouraged by their impressive pace, the mechanical problems which have plagued Verstappen's teammate Ricciardo in recent races, reared their head on his auto, which will no doubt be a cause for concern.

Lewis Hamilton has revealed he clinched his fifth world championship just days after the death of his grandfather.

Daniel Ricciardo upstaged his Red Bull team-mate Max Verstappen with a dazzling record lap in the final seconds of Saturday's thrilling qualifying shootout for the Mexican Grand Prix, as the title-chasing Lewis Hamilton took third. "I was just trying to bring the auto home". "We've quarantined it all and will get it all back to the United Kingdom to understand it, but that is what is looking like the culprit". "I'm going to fighting to at least gain a position but of course I'm aware of the Bulls up ahead".

Mercedes technical director James Allison said Hamilton's driving in 2018 had been "peerless".

Hamilton endured an uncomfortable afternoon, struggling for grip with his tire choice and needing only a seventh-placed finish to guarantee the title, he put up little challenge as first Vettel and then Ricciardo overtook him. Only Germany's Michael Schumacher has more with seven.

"I don't even think frustration is the word anymore", said Ricciardo.

It marked Ricciardo's second race-ending reliability issue in as many weeks, in a season in which he has failed to reach the chequered flag on eight occasions.

The 1-2 start will be the first for Red Bull since the start of the hybrid engine era in 2014. He lost it by 0.026 seconds.




"It's a very unusual feeling right now", Hamilton said. "I'll let Gasly drive the vehicle". He almost found it when he saw a gap between the Red Bulls and tried to take it. Verstappen is the defending race champion and dominated the three rounds of practice.

Instead, for only the third time in his career, he will start from pole with every chance of taking a third win of the season after China and Monaco. He qualified third and Vettel fourth behind the Red Bulls led by Daniel Ricciardo on pole.

Four of the top-five placed cars use Renault engines, but McLaren - the other team on the grid who are powered by the French manufacturer - were nowhere to be seen.

Ricciardo's retirement was his 11 in the last 23 races. Both drivers were reprimanded for unsafe racing moves and team tensions were high. He'd said before the race he likely couldn't beat the Red Bulls.

Ricciardo had to retire in lap 62 after smoke was seen coming from the back of his auto - his eighth retirement for the season.

Team principal Christian Horner wants to keep it clean. Another problem with this auto.

The Perth product fought back from a slow start, reclaiming positions over Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel to slot in second before disaster struck for the eighth time this year.
