The 2024 Mexico Grand Prix takes place over 71 laps of the 4.304-kilometre Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City on Sunday, October 27.

Formula 1 rocked up to Mexico City in 1963 for the first of many championship races (with fiesta vibes, of course). The circuit rejoined the modern-day F1 calendar in 2015 and is now an integral part of the season.

Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez sits at over 2 kilometers above sea level where the oxygen is thinner, providing an added challenge for drivers and engineers alike. As you can imagine, though, the views are spectacular.

The weather at the Mexico Grand Prix is expected to be hot and humid, but there is always an outside chance of rain.
