Argenis Riera has finally put to an end Ezequiel Montero's six-race winning streak with a victory in Mexico last Thursday. Otto Acosta claimed the Pole Position after both Riera and Montero saw their fastest lap times in Q1 being disallowed for exceeding track limits. This forced Riera to start back in 11th and Montero all the way at the back of the grid. The start of the race gave us a thrilling half lap when Acosta and Mackey battled for the race lead until a sudden mechanical problem hindered Acosta's Williams only to cause Mackey to heavily crash into the Williams and end both drivers' races. Richard Haynie assumed the lead briefly and then it was exchanged to Sean Higgins in the Haas. At this point, the race was wide open until Riera and Montero crawled their way back to the top. Riera would secure the first spot on the podium, Montero ended up in second place, and Richard Walcott got his fourth podium finish of the season with a third place.
With this result, Renault F1 have crowned themselves Champions with 2 rounds to go. Well done to the French team and congratulations to Ezequiel Montero and Alejandro Sanabria!
Two races to go now as we move further south to Sao Paulo for the SRHF1 2018 Brazilian Grand Prix.
