It seems race fans will able to perform the Mexican wave in Mexico as Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone has signed a five-year deal to host races at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, Mexico. The last time F1 was in that country was in 1992.
According to reports by Forbes, Ecclestone has said the event has been given the green light, adding “We have got Mexico past the post.” Previously Mexico was included in the provisional list of the 2014 calendar, but was dropped following the track upgrade work which was not completed. It is expected the Mexican Grand Prix will take place between the United States Grand Prix in Austin and the Brazilian Grand Prix in Sao Paolo.
There are currently two Mexican drivers in the field – Sergio Perez of Force India and Esteban Gutierrez of Sauber. Both drivers are sponsored by Mexican Telco giant Escuderia Telmex.
