Mexico Grand Prix 2016 Preview: Hamilton will be confident of his success going into the Sundays’s big race having finally win a grand prix after going 5 races without a win at his favourite circuit of the americas in Austin. He now sit only 26 points behind Rosberg and another convincing victory in Mexico will put him right back into the contention. However anything other than a win will surely end his chances of winning third consecutive F1 title.
Rosberg on the other hand finished Runnersup in Austin and he will be happy with the result. Another couple better results than Hamilton will win him his very first F1 title. So its all to play for as far as this weekend’s race is concerned.
As far as the circuit is concerned, Mercedes should dominate here and Hamilton showed great pace in Austin and he needs every bit of it in the remaining three races as margin of error has come down from low to none going into the last three races.
The first Mexico Grand Prix took place in 1963 and it has a long history maybe not as rich as some of the European venues but certainly one of the most intriguing places for F1 action.
