Mexico’s best circuit – the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez – is named in honour of the country’s two great F1 drivers, legendary brothers Pedro and Ricardo Rodriguez. Ahead of this weekend’s race at the track that bears their name, F1 Hall of Fame journalist David Tremayne remembers their tragic story…

They were born in Mexico City, Pedro on January 18, 1940, Ricardo on February 14, 1942, and were close friends as well as brothers. Pedro saw in Ricardo the spark of unique talent; Ricardo learned from his older sibling’s own impressive performances.
