Verstappen held off Hamilton to triumph at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas a fortnight ago and is expected to win again in F1’s first visit to Mexico since 2019.
The Dutchman was dominant in Friday’s second practice session as he laid down the gauntlet to Mercedes pair Valtteri Bottas and Hamilton.
Earlier in the day, Bottas had led Hamilton in a Silver Arrows one-two with Verstappen initially third fastest.
