The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez has been a huge part of the Formula 1 makeup since 1962. Built in a public park, the first Mexican Grand Prix took place a year later. Since then, the track has gone through some major facelifts since its inception on the race calendar. Located over 2,200m above sea level, the race returned to the track last year for the first time since 1992.

In 2016, Gran Premio de Mexico VIP gives you the chance to go to the heart of the action with all-inclusive hospitality access!

A Unique Experience!

an altitude of 2200m, the track in Mexico City is by far the highest on the calendar, and gives it an added uniqueness that is unmatched. The thinner air will reduce aerodynamic drag but will also compromise power as the engines struggle to breathe, so expect top speeds in the region of 220mph. The track runs clockwise with 17 corners, with the pit straight one of the longest in F1.

The track, named after brothers Ricardo and Pedro Rodriguez, who were both killed in motor racing accidents: Ricardo in 1962, aged 20; Pedro died nine years later at the age of 31. This year like last, expect the home crowd to greet local hero with rapture. Sergio Perez, or “Checo” as he is known, is currently eighth in the drivers’ standings and of Mexico’s most famous sons.
