WATCH: Lap 1 chaos and title rivals clashing – 5 of the most dramatic moments from Mexico's F1 history


The Mexico City Grand Prix has served up its fair share of excitement in the past and as we get set to go racing at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez this weekend, we decided to go through the archives and dig out some of the most dramatic moments from racing in Mexico.

We've seen several first lap incidents at the track, including last year when Daniel Ricciardo sent Valtteri Bottas spinning and further back down the field as Yuki Tsunoda was sent air-bound after contact with Esteban Ocon.

Mexico has also seen title rivals collide at the start, such as in 2017 when Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton came together, sending both drivers to the pit lane and to the back of the grid.
