F1 heads to the United States as Lewis Hamilton looks to make up lost ground on Max Verstappen.
The Brit is six points behind the Dutchman after taking a ten-place grid penalty for an internal combustion engine change in Istanbul.
Hamilton pulled off a good damage limitation race in Turkey, finishing fifth to Verstappen’s second, but was furious with the Mercedes team after they ordered him to pit from third position.
However, Mercedes insist he was likely to have finished down in eighth, had he not come in to the pit lane to change his tyres.
The Merc team were pleasantly surprised with their pace in Turkey and go into the US Grand Prix with even Red Bull labelling them hot race favourites.
Red Bull team principal Christian Horner said he expects a strong Mercedes performance this weekend, before his team bounces back in the upcoming altitude races in Mexico City and Sao Paulo.
He commented: “We know the next race in Austin has been a Hamilton stronghold for quite a few years now.
“But then Mexico, Brazil hopefully the higher-altitude races tended to be quite strong for us in the past.”
