What went wrong for Red Bull in Mexico GP qualifying?

MEXICO CITY -- Throw away the Formula One formbook, it's not worth anything this year. Just as it looked as though Max Verstappen was clearing a path towards his first world title, Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes hit back in qualifying for the Mexican Grand Prix.

You would have struggled to find anyone in the F1 paddock willing to predict an all-Mercedes front row ahead of Saturday afternoon's session, yet that's what we'll have for Sunday's race. What's more, it will be Hamilton's teammate, Valtteri Bottas, who will start on pole position, creating the potential for another team orders debate on Sunday afternoon.
