F1 is headed to the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City this weekend for the 2022 Mexican Grand Prix. Max Verstappen heads into the race as the defending champion and the pre-race favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook with -175 odds.

There is a chance of some rain in the afternoon on Saturday and Sunday, which could impact qualifying and the race. But any inclement weather is looking fairly light for the time-being. It should not have too much of an impact on qualifying or the race.
