Red Bull's Max Verstappen went from fast to furious to victor.

Lewis Hamilton, meanwhile, looked completely comfortable knowing he's in a ideal spot to win his fifth career Formula One championship.

Lewis Hamilton cut a cheery figure after qualifying third for the Mexican Grand Prix, a race in which he need only finish seventh to clinch the Formula One title.

"I knew the pace was in the auto", Ricciardo said.

"Does it mean I have to play safe at the beginning of the race? But yeah, I held a lot in, I've got to save some energy for tomorrow", he told reporters after calming down a bit.

Sebastian Vettel, who finished second behind Max Verstappen, sportingly broke away from his post-race interview to embrace Hamilton before the Briton lauded his father, who worked four jobs to set his son on the path to greatness. Only Germany's Michael Schumacher has more with seven.

Greg Dyer , the head of the Australian players' union, said all three players had been punished enough. Smith, Warner and Bancroft are the only players named in the report.

"This is a great day for us, considering how bad yesterday was for us", said Hamilton after qualifying. Still, the 21-year-old Verstappen was fuming after missing his chance to be the youngest driver to earn pole position in F1 history.

Verstappen said his auto didn't feel right despite fast times in Saturday morning practice and the early stages of qualifying. "The auto is cursed". "I didn't feel good at all". Red Bull will be switching to Honda engines.

With Verstappen galloping into the distance, and Hamilton losing time to his rivals behind, he was the first of the leaders to stop for fresh rubber on lap 11.

Vettel delivered his best drive since the summer break on Sunday, but it was a case of too little, too late for the German, whose championship challenge has been defined by a series of mistakes. He's leaving the team for Renault in 2019. "There's two more races".

Here, Press Association Sport looks at five things we learned from Sunday's race.

"He just had an immensely frustrating afternoon", Horner said. "We had a hard day yesterday and today was a big improvement".

Aberdeen have faced criticism for their league form this year but McInnes insists their recent drop in form is only a blip. Dons chief executive Duncan Fraser added: "Our supporters have been our number-one priority through our discussions".

However, team principle Christian Horner moved to play down the outburst, insisting that emotions were just "running incredibly high". But it was a run of wins over the second half of the season that sent Hamilton to Mexico City all but assured of the championship.

However, a stunning race unfolded that will likely be this season's signature event as Hamilton charged through the field as rain played havoc at Hockenheim.

He'll want to be cautious from the start as the cars barrel through the opening long run into the first turn.

Ricciardo came under pressure from Sebastian Vettel and was striving to keep the Ferrari driver at bay when his RB14 slowed and ultimately stopped due to a suspected hydraulic failure.

But Hamilton took the chequered flag in fourth to secure the championship with two rounds to spare. A strong start Sunday was followed by a clunky race just to ensure a fourth for the championship.
