Mexican Grand Prix 27th October

Mexico City, Mexico

The circuit

The Mexican Grand Prix saw the revival of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in 2015, which underwent several changes and rebuilding after the 1992 Grand Prix. With an altitude of about 2,300 m above sea level, the Mexican Grand Prix is the Formula One race that is held at the highest altitude. This has an impact on the power output of the hybrid turbo engines due to the lack of oxygen. The most impressive section is between corners 12 and 16 – where the drivers pass through the famous stadium.

Celebration

Passionate fans appear in large numbers at this event. With a uniquely designed stadium located in the third sector of the track, drivers cross the finishing line hearing the crowds roar. With lively celebrations at and around the track, and the sound of traditional Mexican music accompanying drivers and teams throughout the weekend, this Grand Prix is always one to be remembered.
