The 2019 Mexican Grand Prix (officially the Formula 1 Gran Premio de México 2019)[1] will be the eighteenth race of the 2019 Formula One season, and the nineteenth time the Mexican Grand Prix will be held on the Formula One calendar. It will be held between 25 October and 27 October 2019.

In qualifying, just as the final session ended, Valtteri Bottas crashed into the barrier at the final corner, thus giving Max Verstappen his second pole position after being the only one to improve his time whilst the yellow flags were out for Bottas' crash. However, Verstappen was later demoted three places for speeding under the yellow flags, handing pole to Charles Leclerc. Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton qualified second and third respectively.
