Mexico Grand Prix: Can Nico Rosberg win the world title?

F1

Right. I've given up an evening of sausage and beer (which anyone who knows me is very, very difficult) to be here, so this better be good. I'm @aidanleape here for the Mexican Grand Prix.

What would constitute good. Well, Rosberg winning the title wouldn't be a bad start, but that looks more than unlikely after Lewis Hamilton stuck it on pole yesterday. Say what you want about him (and believe me I will over the next 90 minutes) but that boy isn't giving up on a fourth World Title

I've just realised I haven't eaten today either. This food thing isn't working for me right now. Final bunch of adverts on. We're about 8 minutes from lights out. I'll run you down the grid in a minute.

THE GRID: HAM ROS VES RIC HUL RAI VET BOT MAS SAI ALO PER BUT MAG ERI WEH GUT KVY NAS OCO PAL GRO starts from the Pit Lane after a changed floor

Give us a shout then. Comment here with your Top 3s. I'm going for Hamilton, Rosberg and Verstappen, What an exciting race I've created for myself.

Really? I was thinking more Hill, Coulthard and Schumacher (Ralf variety) myself.

Here. Less sass please Graham. Did you not see about my sausage plight.

Air Temperature is down at around 19oC. Track temperature at 48oC as the formation lap begins.

Juan Pablo Montoya is for some reason on team radio to Esteban Gutierrez. God knows why.

Right then. Hamilton is set on the grid. The start of this race is just moments away.

Ready? WE ARE RACING

HAM gets the getaway he needs
