Following his success in the United States, Verstappen jointly holds the record for the most F1 wins in a season with Michael Schumacher  and Sebastian Vettel .
To put this into context, Lewis Hamilton's best record across a season is 11 wins - a feat he has achieved four times since 2014.
Verstappen's current win percentage for the year is tied with Vettel's personal best from his final championship-winning season at 68.42 per cent, a stat that will increase to 72.73 should he win the remaining three races, falling short only of Alberto Ascari's 75 per cent record from 1952.
Budget cap comes to a head
Red Bull and the FIA correctly put discussions over a minor breach of the budget cap on hold following last weekend's announcement of the passing of team owner Dietrich Mateschitz.
But earlier in the weekend, it had been hoped that a lid could be put on the topic that weekend after Red Bull was offered an 'Accepted Breach Agreement' [ABA] by the FIA.
Despite a number of meetings taking place between team principal Horner and FIA president Mohammed ben Sulayem, there was no resolution.
It is likely that Red Bull will confirm its decision on the ABA this weekend, with a timetable of what comes next to be dedicated by this outcome.
Aston Martin also expects to conclude its budget cap dealings this weekend.
Mercedes is three races from ending a season without a win for the first time since 2011, but the Mexico City Grand Prix represents possibly the best opportunity to break this duck yet.
In the United States, Lewis Hamilton was an easy target for Verstappen given the draggy nature of the Mercedes W13. But this weakness will become a strength in Mexico, with the altitude rewarding high downforce levels.
On a single lap, Mercedes has still been lacking compared to Red Bull and Ferrari but in race trim, this gap has been steadily shrinking.
Aston Martin endured a dreadful start to the season before introducing a radical upgrade package at the Spanish Grand Prix which briefly saw its car nicknamed the 'Green Red Bull'.
But only recently have the on-track results reflected the off-track efforts, with 28 of the team's 51 points registered in the last three races.
Aston Martin now trails sixth-placed Alfa Romeo by just a point after climbing rapidly from ninth to seventh.
Such has been the improvement of Aston Martin that Sebastian Vettel and Lance Stroll have been battling with the McLaren and Alpine drivers. With the two teams battling furiously over fourth in the standings, further interruptions in Mexico could swing the battle considerably.
