Ricciardo denies Verstappen record pole in Mexico

Ricciardo denies Verstappen in Red Bull one-two

Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes are wary of a repeat of last year's chaos at the opening few corners of the Mexican Grand Prix.

Ricciardo snatched the pole position from Verstappen at the end of a sizzling qualifying session at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez on Saturday.

"I'm holding a lot in".

Verstappen dominated practice and looked primed to become the youngest pole sitter in F1 history.

Hamilton, who wants to see out the title which will draw him level with Juan Manuel Fangio with a victory, is in striking range of the Red Bulls but, crucially, ahead of his sole rival.

If second place on the starting grid left the Dutch youngster feeling sore, the front row lockout was still Red Bull's first since the U.S. Grand Prix of 2013.

"The whole qualifying was crap", the youngster told the global television audience. I'm happy with what we have achieved (in qualifying), and now it's about carrying it through.

Hamilton, who only needs to finish seventh to secure the championship, was satisfied with third.

"I didn't feel good at all". He's leaving the team for Renault in 2019.

"It's too early to say it's just going to be a race between each other, as nice as that would be", Ricciardo said.

"So big changes and improvements were made overnight and to come back in today and put us in contention all of a sudden - we didn't think yesterday with that performance that we would be able to qualify on an ultra so that would have been a massive disadvantage for us tomorrow if we had to start on the hyper for example".

Hamilton said he'd like to go for a win to punctuate a season championship but he doesn't give himself much of a chance to do that Sunday. They were in a league of their own in general up until qualifying and even in qualifying.

The other factor is that Vettel must win all three remaining Grand Prix if has a hope of taking title honors for his own and the Ferrari man's task looks hard as he starts directly behind Hamilton in fourth.

Valtteri Bottas was fifth for Mercedes ahead of Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen.

The top 10 was rounded out by the Renault's of Niko Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz and the Saubers of Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson.
