Mexico Grand Prix

Mexican Grand Prix


Built over fifty years ago, in a park close to the center of Mexico City, the Magdalena Mixhuca circuit held its first Grand Prix in 1962.

It was renamed in 1982 to Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, after the famous Mexican Rodriguez brothers who raced there. A new Grand Prix venue always provides a fresh challenge, but with limited running during Friday practice high track temperatures on race day and an extreme altitude of over 2,000 metres, there were some unforeseen challenges to deal with last year.

Mexican Grand Prix Offers Excitement and a Passionate Crowd


Mexico has a history of some six drivers racing in Formula 1. Pedro and Ricardo Rodriguez were the most famous with both driving for Ferrari during their careers. Sergio Pérez and Esteban Gutiérrez are currently competitive F1 drivers and both have a large following in Mexico. Sergio is in his fouth year of F1 and is now considered a top driver having competed for Sauber, McLaren and Force India.

The atmosphere, passion, and nationalistic pride following Sergio Perez in the competitive Force India Mercedes will add so much to this race. Not to mention our 4 star hotel in the Zona Rosa just steps away from nighlife, restaurants and shopping make this a weekend not to be missed.

RACE OVERVIEW

Mexican Grand Prix
Both the 2015 and 2016 Mexican Grand Prix`s were enormously successful with both the drivers and fans alike. It was the efforts of Tavo Hellmund that brought Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez to life again. Niki Lauda told reporters "It was the best I`ve ever seen in my whole life," and motor sports reporter David Tremayne said of Tavo "it was an object lesson in how to organize a grand prix". Formula One Management awarded the Mexican/American the Race Promoter`s Trophy for the best race promoter of the year.

During the years the Mexican Grand Prix has had its ups and downs, built in 1962 it hosted Formula one GP`s for seven years but could not continue due to spectator safety. The circuit was improved and made safer for the 1986 season. As the cars became faster the circuit became too unsafe to race again, and stopped in 1992. Thanks to Tavo Helmond`s efforts we now have a wonderful circuit and a solid Mexican Grand Prix.

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is named after the brothers Pedro and Ricardo Rodriguez who were both top line Grand Prix drivers. They were lorded by the Mexican public, while 20 year old Ricardo was in his second year with Ferrari.

The first race at the Magdalena Mixhuca Circuit was a non championship F1 race in 1962. Ricardo wanted to race but his Ferrari was not available, so he drove Rob Walkers Lotus. In the final practice Ricardo crashed at the Parabolica and lost his life. Pedro had a career in F1 of some 8 years and died in Germany driving in a sports car race in 1971.

The Magdalena Mixhuca Circuit was renamed Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in respect of the two famous brothers in 1973.
