  1. A typical Mexico race with DRS trains, but some good battles too.

  2. I’m seeing a different poll

    1. Me too…

    2. Yeah, seems we are seeing the results of the “driver of the weekend” vote instead of the “rate the race” poll here @keithcollantine

    3. And the shape of the green snake is quite unusual, maybe it is even more like a green crocodile head, yer see those toothies :) I hope the snake gets well for the next weekend.

      For me it is hard to pick a standout one, there were many quite nice performances, and his is why I am not satisfyed with some drivers earning only a low 1 digits percantage at a choose one format. I think it is realistic that Hammy takes it at a British site today, and maybe I am even satisfied with this as a poll result, but Max, Lando, Leclerc and Ricciardo were quite cool as well.
      Maybe Leclerc should not have let Hamilton to build a bigger gap (by forcing as high pace as possible even from behind), but maybe this was the pace of the Ferrari today. Even in this case it was an ok race from the Ferrari.

      1. And of course Albon was quite good too.
        But as I see in the other article, now we had two DOTW votes, and even the results are different, so they are not pulled from the same source for the bugged graph, but an even more interesting thing happened. I would not like to be the investigator who finds the root cause of this tech-wise.

  3. Strange race, Bit of a DRS train but a couple of drivers out of position and teams trying different strategies spiced it up.

    Norris’s pace was absolutely insane. Without the stop right before the red flag and the botched restart he’d probably have been fighting for 3rd at very least…. possibly even 2nd.

  4. 7/10

    One of the better races of the season IMO. Nothing really comes close to Zandvoort still.

  5. By Mexico’s standards that was really good. Not too much going on but when something did it was impressive or exciting. Lando was amazing

    This is showing “Who was the best driver of the 2023 United States Grand Prix weekend?” not Rate the Race.

    1. Not a problem for me as I happen to give the Mexico City GP a score of Fernando Alonso out of 10.

        1. I would have agreed….. except it is out of 21.

    2. I have the same? :Who was the best driver of the 2023 United States Grand Prix weekend?
      what is this?

  7. Races like that show why DRS is still necessary.
    Can you imagine what would this race be without DRS?
    5 laps in, nobody would advance, a overheating-preventing 3-4sec gap will appear naturally with not chance of overtakes.
    DRS is not a good solution, but it is still a necessity.

    1. Can you imagine what would this race be without DRS?

      About as pointless as it was with DRS? Can’t really see how it could have been much worse tbh.

      Can you imagine what would this race be without DRS?

      Sure: About 5 times more exciting, and real, as opposed to fake.

    3. SPOT ON! But deaf people won’t listen…

    4. I absolutely agree. Quite a few years passed since the introduction of DRS, and people start to forget how desperately boring some of the GPs used to be (e.g. Spain, Hungary), with no drivers trying any on-track overtake, their chances for a successful one being so low.
      On some tracks, DRS really kills the race, but on others, it is really a necessity to have at least some kind of race.

  8. Rate the race: 2023 Mexican Grand Prix

    Who was the best driver of the 2023 United States Grand Prix weekend?

  9. Favorite move of the race was when BOT sent STR off. Didn’t matter to BOT and I think all of the drivers from the mid to the back are sick of STR’s antics.

    1. @jimfromus I really want to see this from a different angle, or even just ‘again but slower’, as from the brief replays it looked as though LS’s back end may have swung towards VB.

      Was it actually clear that VB turned into LS?

      1. I think it was a very opportunistic overtake attempt from LS, I tend to agree with my native pundits who have said, that it was a racing incident, but LS offered his car for a nice T-boning or for a PIT maneuver quite much, so it is quite hard for me to blame Bottas more.

        1. This not aged well xD

  10. For the race I give it an 8. Very enjoyable race with actions at a lot of places in the order. Would have been a 7, but then Norris progress to 5th and Max excellent starts at the start and after the red flag made it an 8. Tension how high Ric could end up also contributed.

    1. I had tension even for hamilton, who was trying to recover points from perez and even got the fastest lap at the end for that extra point.

  11. Poll seems broken. 8/10 for me. Verstappen dissappeared into the distance, but the red flag gave some tension and a lot of action in the midfield. Nice to follow Norris’ surge and Ricciardo’s late race closing on Russell.

    Speaking of that: what is going on with Russell? Second weekend in a row he seems absent.

  12. Surprised this poll is still broken
