Daniel Ricciardo's 'mighty' pole lap stuns Red Bull boss Christian Horner

AFP | Lewis Hamilton is now second only to Michael Schumacher after winning his fifth Formula One world title

Verstappen had shown the speed all weekend in Mexico and looked set to create history with a first career pole in the final qualifying session. "Considering how bad yesterday was for us, and so I really want to say a big thank you to everyone who's back at the factory who've been working hard overnight and also the guys here, to rectify the issues we've had and get the auto back into a sweeter spot".

"I think it really depends how we get away, but third place is a nice place to start", he continued.

Mercedes' world championship leader Hamilton, who was some way off the pace, would have no quarrel with another Verstappen victory since that would also hand him his fifth title with two races to spare.

Speaking about his approach to the start of the Grand Prix with the long 900 meter run down to turn one, Hamilton admitted that he has one eye on the championship rather than the Grand Prix saying, "We saw what happened previous year with the red auto behind, so I don't know".

Horner Impressed With Verstappen Recovery
Cape Town - Max Verstappen says some members of the Red Bull team are seeing the amusing side in Daniel Ricciardo's misfortune.

"These guys were just too quick", Hamilton said after the session finished.

"I'm really happy for Daniel", he insisted. They were in a league of their own in general up until qualifying and even in qualifying.

Alongside Hamilton on the grid for tomorrow's race is his title rival Sebastian Vettel. "The team did a great job yesterday, this was as good as I could get. To be as close as I am, I'm really quite happy with that, and to be on third, it's not a bad start".

"We saw what happened previous year with the red vehicle behind, so I don't know what will happen at the start tomorrow", he added.

This year has started out rough as the team dropped to 1-3 after a Wednesday night defeat to the Utah Jazz. The Raptors (4-0) will be looking to start a season with five straight wins for just the second time.

Horner said that if Verstappen's vehicle needed an engine change, the driver still had one left in his pool and should not face any grid drop. "Qualifying was pretty good for me".

Asked if Red Bull can fix the problems they've experienced before tomorrow, Verstappen added: "I'm not sure but I'll try".

The Australian has suffered seven retirements in 18 races this year and his long and triumphant whoop over the team radio, and some typically colourful language afterwards, said it all.

"To be honest, the first sector wasn't that good, so I was surprised to have probably got the pole after that, but I saw the second and third sector were strong and that's where I made the difference".

Migrants hit snags with Mexican immigration
Mexico's government said in a statement on Tuesday that it had received 1,699 requests for refugee status, including children. Then they started walking north in the so-called migrant caravan of people who've banded together for security and support.

"Honestly, we had a hard day yesterday and it was a big improvement today", he continued.
