Valtteri Bottas will start the Mexican Grand Prix on pole after Mercedes found some surprising performance in qualifying.

Max Verstappen had been favourite to triumph for Red Bull, and extend his title advantage over Lewis Hamilton.

The Dutchman star heads to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez boasting a 12-point lead over his key rival with just five races remaining in a fascinating 2021 Formula 1 championship battle.

However, the pace Red Bull showed in practice did not materialise in qualifying, and Bottas took advantage with teammate Hamilton in second.

Verstappen and Sergio Perez will line-up behind the Mercedes duo at the start of Sunday’s race.
