Were Mercedes caught out by Red Bull's aggressive strategy call in Austin?

Max Verstappen and Red Bull got the better of Lewis Hamilton and Mercedes at the United States Grand Prix, with the Dutchman extending his championship lead.

The United States Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas proved to be a nail-biting strategic battle between Mercedes and Red Bull that ramped up the tension with every single lap. In the end, it was Red Bull and Max Verstappen who came out on top and, with the win, extended the championship lead over Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton to 12 points with five races remaining. Were Mercedes caught out by Red Bull's aggressive strategy call? Just how well did Verstappen do to handle the pressure, and is Hamilton reaching new heights in his bid to beat the Dutch driver? Analysing the United States Grand Prix are Formula 1 journalists Dieter Rencken, Mike Seymour and Thomas Maher, who also talk about Sergio Perez's heroic drive to third place, as well as discussing the immense Ferrari vs McLaren battle. The RacingNews365 podcast also chats about whether F1 has finally broken the US market, and the latest on those rumours about Andretti's possible arrival in Formula 1.
