Round 18 of the 2017 Formula One season takes place this weekend (27-29 Oct) at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City.
Since this race returned to the calendar two years ago, it has been won by Mercedes drivers, with Red Bull and Ferrari hoping to buck that trend this time around.
Lewis Hamilton – who has a 66 point lead over Sebastian Vettel in the Drivers’ Championship – will be crowned world champion if he finishes fifth or higher.
If Vettel finishes second, Hamilton will only need to finish at least ninth, but if Vettel finishes third or lower, Hamilton will be world champion even if he fails to finish.
All five sessions – practice, qualifying and the race – will be shown live on Sky Sports F1, while Channel 4 airs highlights of qualifying and the race.
Qualifying begins at 7pm BST, while the race starts at 7pm GMT.
