Mexico City has cemented its position as a world-class sports destination by securing three more years of Formula 1 races.
The city’s Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez will stage a Grand Prix until at least the end of 2022 after an agreement was struck between the sport’s promoting body and the Government of Mexico City.
Formula 1 chairman and CEO, Chase Carey, said: “This event has always proved to be amazingly popular with the public and fans, not just in Mexico, but also around the world. Proof of this is the fact that the race promoter has won the FIA award for the best event no fewer than four years in a row and, in those four years, over 1.3 million spectators have attended the Grand Prix.
“The Grand Prix has also been an important economic driver for the city, reinforcing its credentials as a center for tourism.”
The Mexico Grand Prix has proved a vital fixture in recent years with driver Lewis Hamilton securing the championship there in the 2018 and 2017 editions.
