FORMULA 1 GRAN PREMIO DE MÉXICO 2020
The first Mexican Grand Prix was held at the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City. It first appeared as a non-championship event in 1962 before being held as a championship event from 1963-1970 and 1986-1992. Here we are at the 2020 Mexico Grand Prix.
The first modern Mexican GP in 1962 was won by Jim Clark in a Lotus Ford, sharing with Trevor Taylor. What will happen in the 2019 Mexico GP?
After a break from 1993 to 2014 the Mexican GP then returned in 2015 at the present Mexico City circuit.
The race has had two multiple winners so far, Jim Clark winning 3 times with Alain Prost and Nigel Mansell winning twice.
The 2015 Mexico GP was won by Nico Rosberg for Mercedes.

2019 Mexico GP
Max Verstappen, who had already set the fastest time, failed to slow down when passing the yellow flags. He was later handed a three-place grid penalty for this infraction, and as a result the pole position was inherited by Charles Leclerc, with his teammate Sebastian Vettel joining him on the front row.
In the closing laps of the race the top four drivers closed up to within just five seconds of each other, however, none were able to make any overtakes. Hamilton crossed the finish line to take his tenth Grand Prix victory of the season ahead of Seb and third-placed teammate Bottas with Charles Leclerc 4th, so Lewis didn’t win the title at this race.
