Round seventeen sees the return of Formula One after twenty three years to Mexico. The Autodromo Hermanos Redriguez has been rebuilt over the past few years and has been lengthened slightly from the last race in 1992.
The circuit appears to be a mix of long straights and fast flowing corners. Reports suggest that the race has been sold out and fans will be enusatic as many Mexican fans have travelled crossed into Texas for the US Grand Prix. The circuit should play to the hands of Mercedes with the layout.
