Norris, meanwhile, may have missed out on the opportunity to score his fifth consecutive podium position in Mexico, but drove superbly well to climb from 17th up to fifth, and take home important points for his team after a poor qualifying.
His stock continues to rise, having managed to ascend the drivers' championship table right up to sixth, despite only taking 12 points from the first eight races of the season.
The importance of F1's power rankings
The power rankings rank drivers solely based on their performance, not taking into account the performance of their car. This can be seen by the fact that Alex Albon is currently fourth, despite being down in 13th in the drivers' championship.
Norris has moved up to third after his supreme drive in Mexico, overtaking Fernando Alonso who drops two spots down to fifth after a disappointing last couple of races.
Behind that formidable top five, Hamilton's team-mate George Russell leads a gaggle of impressive young drivers all vying to make their way up the table, including Carlos Sainz, Charles Leclerc and Oscar Piastri.
F1 shared the top 10 performers from the Mexican GP on their official Instagram page.
