The Mexican Grand Prix usually marks the start of the American leg of the Formula One calendar. The race is held at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, as has been the case since 1986.
Since then, it has been a regular feature in the Formula One World Championship until 1992. It did not appear on the calendar again until 2015.
Unfortunately, the current pandemic has resulted in F1 cancelling all its races in the Americas. As a result, there won’t be an F1 race in Mexico city this season.
Mexico was quickly developing into a Red Bull stronghold, after the Milton-Keynes outfit cliched back to back wins at the track. However, Mercedes asserted their supremacy in Mexico after a masterclass from Lewis Hamilton at last year’s race.
