MEXICO CITY, MEXICO - OCTOBER 29: Sergio Perez of Mexico driving the (11) Oracle Red Bull Racing

The vibrant and populous metropolis that is Mexico City first hosted a non-championship Grand Prix in 1962, before Jim Clark won at this high-altitude circuit the following year in its first bona fide Formula 1 event, and so began a love affair which married the sport with some of the most fervent fans in the world, all wrapped up in a lively fiesta atmosphere which continues to this day thanks in no small part to having one of their own in the shape of Sergio ‘Checo’ Perez on the grid.

The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is located just to the east of the city, and is well served by a nearby fast and efficient Metro which means you can easily be transported back into the heart of the city, with all it has to offer, in the time it takes to eat a taco.
