In addition to their impressive 2022 form, Verstappen and Red Bull are also the most recent winners of the United States race, having edged out Mercedes driver Lewis Hamilton in a thrilling fight last season.

In contrast to the wet and wild conditions at Suzuka a fortnight ago, the weather forecast suggests that it will be sunny and dry throughout the race weekend at COTA.
