Mexican GP 2018

The first ever Mexican Grand Prix appeared as a non-championship in 1962. Then it was held as a championship event in two separate time periods; from 1963 to 1970, and then again from 1986 to 1992. The Grand Prix, then, finally returned to the Mexico City circuit in 2015.


The Track – Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez

The circuit Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez got its named only a little while after it opened for the non-championship in 1962 when Ricardo Rodriguez died during his practice session. His brother also lost his life driving nine years later. However, when the F1 made its return to the circuit in 2015, it underwent a significant renovation under the direction of Hermann Tilke. The present circuit has 17 turns and an elevation of 2285 meters.

The 4.304 km long track has an extremely fast final corner before entering a long and straight stretch to the start/finish line, which reminds us of the Monza circuit in Italy.


First Winner

The first championship to be held on the circuit in 1963 was won by Jim Clark. However, the first ever race that was held on the circuit in 1962, as a non-championship, resulted in a tie between Jim Clark and Trevor Taylor.


Drivers from Mexico

Since the beginning of the F1 championship there have been as many as 6 drivers from Mexico to take part in the races. Pedro Rodriguez has so far been the most successful Mexican driver being the only Mexican to have won the Grand Prix.

Sergio Perez is the current Mexican driver on the grid.


Most successful drivers

Jim Clark, who’s won 3 times in Mexico, holds the record for the most number of wins on the circuit. Then come Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell who have two victories each to their name


Latest from the Mexican Grand Prix

Red Bull Formula One team boss Christian Horner believes that the Mexico GP is the only shot they have at winning another race in 2018. Although Verstappen ultimately lost to Hamilton at the Singapore circuit, he did in Mexico last year. So the entire Red Bull F1 team must be hopeful of another chance at the Mexico City circuit.

With Hamilton winning in Singapore, the gap between Vettel and him has been pushed further up by 10 points. So now with only six more races to go, Vettel must also be looking for a win. There’s a pretty good chance for the fans to see the two engage in battle at the
