Red Bull's Daniel Ricciardo snatched pole position from teammate Max Verstappen at the Mexican Grand Prix on Saturday, while Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton sits in flawless position in third to win his fifth career Formula One championship. "I think we could have had a one-two or at least two cars on the podium".

The rivalry within the Red Bull ranks has not escaped Vettel's attention either.

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel, who must win here to stand any chance of stopping Hamilton from claiming this year's honours, finished behind his rival in fourth. "I feel like I am going to wake up in a matter of moments". Vettel will start from fourth and has to win on Sunday to have any chance of taking the title battle on to Brazil. "We hadn't had the cleanest laps in practice and I just knew putting the laps together would be crucial as always".

Things went from bad to worse for Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo's Mexican Grand Prix when his auto broke down with less than 10 laps to go, seemingly costing him a podium finish.

"There's nothing left guys, these tyres are dead", Hamilton said after running off the track on lap 47.

Verstappen wasted no time in leaving his mark by leading after the first Q3 runs with a blistering 1m14.785s tour, a time almost two-tenths clear of Sebastian Vettel's own 1m14.970s effort.

But there was a sour end to both his, and Red Bull's, impressive day after the team's temperamental reliability issues struck again.

Hamilton went on to talk about his own father Anthony, who famously worked multiple jobs to fund Lewis' karting career and propel him up the motor racing ladder.

Last year Verstappen, Hamilton and Vettel made contact through Mexico City's tight first corner complex, but despite the championship position and qualifying outcome Hamilton said he would try to race normally at this season's start.

But the afternoon was one of his hardest of the season, the Briton off the podium for the first time since a race retirement in Austria at the beginning of July.

He said: "Helpless I think is the best word".

"We tried to make the best of it and I thought it was going to be enough for pole with the problems we had".

Ferrari hasn't won the driver's championship since 2007 and Hamilton gave a nod of respect to the season title fight with Vettel.

Ricciardo was running in a strong second place behind Red Bull teammate Max Verstappen and fending off Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel when his auto broke down with ten laps remaining.

"Number five is incredible".
