The Mexico City Grand Prix gets underway this weekend as the drivers prepare to go racing for the second of three back-to-back races, but what weather conditions can they expect to be greeted by?

Max Verstappen comes into the weekend having won 15 races so far this year in what has been a dominant championship-winning campaign. He has also won a record four times in Mexico – including at the last two events in 2021 and 2022 – and he will be looking to add to his tally this weekend.

His team mate, Sergio Perez, will also be looking to win in front of his home crowd for the first time. As well as that he will be hoping to extend his 39-point gap to Lewis Hamilton for second in the drivers’ championship.

Last year’s race saw Verstappen take a dominant win ahead of Hamilton and Perez, so will we see the same podium this year? Or can George Russell, along with either or both drivers at McLaren and Ferrari make their way into the top three?

It is expected to be hot and humid in Mexico but there is a chance of rain on all three days of action. However, for a more detailed forecast, scroll down below.
