Mexican Grand Prix
Lewis Hamilton overcame Ferrari's front-row start to win the Mexican Grand Prix on Sunday, moving the Mercedes driver closer to a sixth career Formula One championship. Only Mercedes teammate Valtteri Bottas' third-place finish denied Hamilton the championship by the slimmest of margins. Hamilton needed only to beat Bottas by 14 points, but picked up 10 instead.
Max Verstappen turned in a brilliant lap to snatch a surprising pole position at the Mexican Grand Prix.

Formula One racing in North America has come a long way in the last few years. Having been absent from the calendar from 1992 through 1998 and again from 2008 through 2011 (when American racing fans could only catch the Canadian Grand Prix up in Montreal), the United States Grand Prix is now a regular fixture on the ca
Several months typically pass between when the FIA releases the provisional calendar for the next year's Formula One World Championship and when it releases the final version. The gap is usually bridged by a fair share of back-and-forth speculation over which races will make the cut, but this year's has looked even more feverish than usual from where we sit, principally for one reason: namely, that the
Formula One fans in North America were justifiably excited when the FIA published its provisional calendar for next season. Not only did it include the perennial Canadian Grand Prix in Montreal and the (still new) US Grand Prix in Austin, but also races in both New Jersey and Mexico. But a lot can change in between the provisional calendar and the finalized one. And the latest reports from the F1 circuit indicate that both the grands prix in Jersey
