The Mexican events company CIE has filed papers with the Mexican stock exchange indicating that subject to final negotiations and paperwork, it has agreed a five-year contract to host Formula One races in Mexico City, starting in 2015. Previous Mexican Grands Prix have been held at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, which is operated by CIE. The venue is currently used for baseball games and concerts and needs a lot of work to be brought up to modern F1 standards.
Mexico has hosted 15 Formula One races in the past. The first races took place between 1963 and 1970, and then again from 1986 to 1992.
If the race joins the current 19, it will take the total number of races to 20 as none of the current events seem likely to drop out.
