F1 Mexican GP: Updated Schedule & Timings
As the Mexican GP approaches, fans and Formula 1 enthusiasts have much to look forward to, both on the track and behind the scenes. The world of F1 is always filled with surprises and excitement, and Mexico’s place on the calendar continues to be a highlight of the season.
The Mexico City Grand Prix made a triumphant return to the Formula 1 calendar in 2015 after a 23-year absence. This historic event, originally held at the Magdalena Mixhuca circuit from 1962 to 1970, found its new home at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez when Formula 1 rekindled its relationship with Mexico in 1986.
Fast forward to today, and the Mexican Grand Prix has firmly established itself as a recurring fixture on the race calendar. Typically scheduled after the United States Grand Prix at the end of October or the beginning of November, it has become a much-anticipated event for both fans and teams.
A glimpse into the previous year’s Mexican GP
The 2022 Mexican Grand Prix brought its share of drama and intrigue. Lance Stroll, driving for Aston Martin, carried a three-place grid penalty due to a collision with Fernando Alonso during the preceding round, the United States Grand Prix. Such penalties and incidents are not uncommon in the high-stakes world of Formula 1, where every manoeuvre can make the difference between victory and defeat.

The uncertain future of Sergio Perez
As the wheels of time keep turning, the world of Formula 1 is constantly in flux. Recent rumors have swirled around Sergio Perez’s future in the sport. It’s been suggested that Red Bull has conveyed to Perez that his contract won’t be extended beyond 2023. This news has left Perez with limited options for continuing his F1 career, despite the appeal of his sponsorship package.
However, it’s important to approach this information with caution. The source of these rumors remains anonymous, and concrete proof is notably absent.
