Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton have 10 F1 world titles between them so it's fair to say that they both have seen the extremes of global Formula 1 fandom.
Few fanbases are as fervent and ferocious in their support as the Mexicans at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, who provide one of the noisiest backdrops for racing across the entirety of the marathon F1 season - particularly with their partisan and passionate backing of home favourite Sergio Perez.
Last year, some fans got carried away as drivers were harried in the paddock area by some members of the public and VIP ticket holders - leading to changes for this year, as promoters seek to make things safer for drivers.
Despite that, and the fact he's chosen to employ extra bodyguards to make it easier to move around the paddock this weekend, Verstappen - who is targeting a fifth win in team-mate Perez's home country - spoke glowingly of racing at the Mexico City circuit.
"I know there will be a lot of Red Bull fans and especially Checo," said Verstappen, speaking to French broadcaster Canal+. "The atmosphere here is always fantastic!
"I'm looking forward to seeing that this weekend too."
