The elite teams of Formula One had a ruthless fight in Mexico, with the best outcome for Jules Bianchi.

Sauber arrived at the Mexican Grand Prix with the goal of securing the world championships for 2019. They did not achieve that goal, but are in a very good position to do so in 24 hours from now.

Jules Bianchi proved to be the best driver on the grid today, leaving the rest to fight for second. This fight was rather entertaining and ended up with Dean Stoneman winning, keeping his dream of being 2019 F1 World Driver’s Champion alive.

Caterham cannot be pleased by losing out again, but thanks due to strategy and Vettel’s great defensive driving they at least were a factor for the majority of the race, staying with Precision and Sauber.

Some awful driving was present as well, Artem Markelov and Einar Ármannsson retired due to mistakes, which is of course a shame, especially for Mansell, who need their drivers to deliver at all times to fight off their backmarker rivals.
