Formula 1 Will Race In Mexico Until End of 2022
The Formula 1 Mexican Grand Prix is something we’ve been speaking about for a while – with many rumours about it remaining on the calendar.
It’s no secret that this is a popular circuit and as we know, prior to the Mexican Grand Prix, many fans ended up travelling to the USA for the US Grand Prix.
One thing that we all love about the Mexico and the fans there is the passion . you can see it from the outset. The atmosphere, the stadium and the build-up for the week, it’s like no other.
Today though, it’s good to hear the news from Formula 1 with an announcement that the Formula 1 Mexican Grand Prix will continue to be held in Mexico City until the end of 2022.
The agreement has formally been signed in a press conference and this means that the staging of the event will continue at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez – the place which first hosted the race back in 1963.
The stadium is one of the key points of the circuit as fans really get to experience the racing as drivers make their way through – not forgetting the podium celebrations too!
Since 2015, over 1.3 million fans have attended the race – proving it’s popularity and love for the sport.
