Well, Halloween arrived at the right possible time. We’ve seen all kinds of bizarre costumes on the eve of October 31. But, for the first time in a while, Formula 1 ended up as one of the most opted themes this year; Hamilton and Verstappen in particular.

But, the one that mainly grabbed our attention was the image starring two kids, possibly siblings, dressed up as Hamilton and Verstappen.

The former couldn’t stop laughing at the image either, as he reacted to it in his story.

What did Lewis Hamilton say?

The Mercedes driver shared the picture through his own Instagram handle, and quoted, “This is amazing.” Of course, the elder brother went as Hamilton while the younger brother chose Verstappen. But, in the end, both looked happy with their respective costumes.

The fun is almost over, as the real action is set to make a sensational return at the Mexican Grand Prix, later this week. And yet again, it is Hamilton and Verstappen in the headlines. Too many questions looming over the ongoing championship, which is creating quite the buzz around the upcoming battle in Mexico City.

Verstappen, with 2 Mexican GP wins and a commendable Red Bull in hand, is certainly the favorite to win his 3rd race. But, no amount of dominance from Verstappen can keep the threat of Hamilton away. The Briton is always in the mix, and he will once again be at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez as well.

But, more than Verstappen, Hamilton will be wary of Sergio Perez, the Mexican who has been craving for a race win at home. And now that his hopes can finally be fulfilled with Red Bull, Perez isn’t going to be foolish enough to throw it away. So, are we in for a super-Sunday with a 3-way battle for the Mexican GP win?
