Lewis Hamilton will look for a comeback at the Mexican GP

Lewis Hamilton, who took the lead at the start of the US GP after getting a better getaway than pole-sitter, Max Verstappen, lost it after a successful undercut strategy by Red Bull. And despite being on fresher tires at the closing stages of the race, Hamilton failed to overtake his title rival and crossed the checkered flag just 1.3 seconds before the Dutchman.
