Bettingpro's guide to the Mexican Grand Prix and it's host venue, the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.

Circuit Guide

Named after racing drivers Ricardo and Pedro Rodriguez, the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez returned to the Formula 1 calendar in 2015 after a 23-year absence from the schedule. Made up of long straights and slow corners, it is a circuit that has struggled to capture the imagination of drivers, who concede the updated lay-out of the track is not nearly as challenging as the previous lay-out used between 1986 and 1992. The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez was a happy hunting ground for Mercedes when it returned, with Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton winning in 2015 and 2016 respectively, and following his 2019 success Hamilton joins Max Verstappen as the only two-time winners of this race on the active driver list.
