Ahead of the Grand Prix of Mexico, Formula 1 comes with a trailer. The 'Masters of Mexico,' is how Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen are called in the run-up to this race.

Hamilton and Verstappen both have two wins to their name in Mexico. Hamilton won in 2016 and 2019, Verstappen won the two editions in between. Only Nico Rosberg managed to win the race once outside of the current title rivals since the circuit's return. In that respect, it really is the 'Masters of Mexico'.

Duel in Mexico City

Nigel Mansell and Alain Prost also won twice in Mexico in the past. Jim Clark even did it three times, but the first victory in 1962 did not count for the world championship.

The trailer is of course a nice flashback to Hamilton and Verstappen's past in Mexico, but the stakes are higher than ever this year. Now a title is at stake and the Dutchman and the Brit must do everything to score as many points as possible. Who can be crowned the true Master of Mexico after this weekend?
