For the French public, as since 2013, it will be necessary to count on the broadcast of the event by the Canal+ group, which organizes the programming on its various channels. The group will offer its usual coverage of all sessions throughout the weekend.

There is a seven hour time difference with Mexico City. The switch to winter time in France, on the night of Saturday 29 October to Sunday 30 October, will not be a problem as Mexico will do the same.

Info and prices

Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez has already hosted Formula 1 twenty times since 1963, but it was on a circuit cut off from its famous Peraltada curve that the premier category of motorsport returned in 2015. The Mexico circuit is made of a combination of slow bends and fast curves and its main characteristic is its high altitude of more than 2200 meters. The drag is therefore less, leading teams to adopt a high downforce configuration to compensate for this factor, but it is also more difficult to cool the mechanics to ensure reliability. This route is also striking because of the passage in the stadium, where the Mexican fans never fail to create an extraordinary atmosphere.

4,304 km long and consisting of 17 turns, the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez will be covered 71 times over a distance that just exceeds the regulation 305 kilometers.
