The nine reasons why the 2022 Mexican GP wasn’t a better F1 race

For a Formula 1 race with so much promise and potential, a dominant and record-breaking 14th victory for Max Verstappen somewhat undersold the Mexican Grand Prix. But full credit must go to the reigning world champion and his Red Bull squad for masterminding a thumping performance, along with a handful of other critical factors which worked in their favour.

Expectations of a thrilling contest were high heading into Formula 1’s 2022 Mexico City Grand Prix.

Dominant title winner Max Verstappen may have secured a sixth pole of his campaign of campaigns, but there was a serious threat from two rival cars in between him and teammate Sergio Perez on the grid. Plus, this race had not been won from pole in six years, the long run to Turn 1 making things harder for the polesitter punching the first hole through the air having much to do with that stretch.
