GOOD LAP VS GREAT LAP: Mastering Mexico City with Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton
What does it take to nail a lap of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez? Thankfully, Good Lap vs Great Lap is here to show us with a detailed comparison around the Mexico City venue.
In 2021, it was Valtteri Bottas who claimed pole position on a 4.304km layout that begins with two lengthy straights punctuated by tricky chicanes, before moving on to a middle sector dominated by high-speed esses and, finally, a tight, twisty stadium section.
Alex Brundle is your guide as he analyses the decisive Q3 efforts of Bottas and then Mercedes team mate Lewis Hamilton – who lapped 0.145s slower – to find how exactly where time was won and lost in the battle for pole.
