 Mexico City is a host city for the FIA Formula E Championship, and the capital of Mexico.[1] The City was added to the 2015/16 season calendar in late November 2015, and will host its first race, the 2016 Mexico City ePrix, on the 12th of March 2016.[2]

City HistoryEdit

Mexico City was originally founded by the Mexica people during the fourteenth century, and became the centre for the Spanish colonialists after their arrival in the early sixteenth century.[3] The city was rebuilt after a number of sieges, with steady growth until the Mexican-American wars of the nineteenth century, although that also proved to be a minor hindrance, with further growth into the twentieth century.[3] Mexico City was also the home of the failed Mexican Revolution between 1910 and 1920, before becoming one of the biggest, and fastest growing, cities in the world by the twenty-first century.[3]

Formula E HistoryEdit

The Mexico City ePrix circuit uses the famed, and newly rebuilt, Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez as a base, running on a modified version of the Oval circuit.[1]

Circuit HistoryEdit

The Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez laid dormant to the Motor racing World after the mid-1990s, with only local and American continental championships using the circuit.[1] Investment in the 2010s saw the promise of a return for the Mexican Grand Prix in 2015, with the World Motor Sport Council announcing shortly after that race that Formula E would use the circuit as part of the 2015/16.[1]

Circuit LayoutEdit

The Mexico City ePrix circuit uses the famed, and newly rebuilt, Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez as a base, running on a modified version of the Oval circuit.[1] Chicanes run either side of the long turn three (the first turn of the Oval), with the drivers then turning into the new Stadium section, following the Grand Prix layout.[1] The drivers then exit the stadium to run through the remains of the Peraltada corner, which features a chicane to slow the cars before they rejoin the main straight.[1]
