The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit is officially remaining on the Formula One calendar from now until 2025. The news comes following an agreement between Formula One, the Government of Mexico City and race promoters.

Mexico is a fan favourite

Mexico is a firm favourite amongst the drivers and the fans. It is Red Bull’s Sergio Perez’s home track, and fans are keen for him to score a win there this weekend.

The Mexico Grand Prix is also a very successful Grand Prix. From 2015 to 2021, the Mexico Grand Prix created millions of U.S dollars for those involved. The contract extension is surely great news for the sport.

Formula One President and CEO, Stefano Domenicali, said on the news:

“I am very pleased to announce that Formula One will continue to race in Mexico City for another three years under this new agreement. Every year the race attracts a large number of passionate fans, and the atmosphere is incredible, and I know everyone will be excited by this news. I want to thank Claudio Sheinbaum, the Head of Government for Mexico City, and Alejandro Soberon and his team for their ongoing commitment to Formula 1 and the continued success of the event.”

Mexico Grand Prix this weekend

The Mexico Grand Prix is one of three races left this season, and will take place this weekend. Red Bull, who recently won the 2022 Constructors Championship, are currently on a win streak of eight. But will this weekend bring the end of their success?

Spaniard Carlos Sainz predicts a dicey battle in Mexico due to the mixture of high altitude and downforce on the track. This will play into several different teams strengths.

Alfa Romeo are also seeking to score some points in Mexico this weekend with Aston Martin just one point behind them in the Constructors. With little points scored recently, will their spell of bad luck lift?

One thing that lots of fans are hoping for is a home win for Sergio Perez. Last year the Mexican claimed P3, but with some good results this year and a fast car, he may be able to take the top spot.

The Mexican Grand Prix will feature several Formula 2 drivers running in FP1 too.

With both Championships won, the upcoming races are set to look spicy as drivers aim to score as many individual points as possible. Mexico is certainly no exception.
