The Mexican Grand Prix (Gran Premio de Mexico) was a Formula One auto race held at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City. It first appeared as a non-championship event in 1962 before being held as a championship event from 1963-1970 and 1986-1992.
New Mexican GP
Rumors first surfaced in 2003 that the Mexican Grand Prix might return to the Formula One calendar at a new $70 million circuit, dubbed Mantarraya, to be built near Cancún. In 2005, the governor of the Quintana Roo state (where Cancun is in) boldly stated Mexico would have a Grand Prix on the calendar for F1 2006. The plan was halted, possibly scuttled, later that year as a debate arose about whether the land the circuit was to be built on was properly owned by the right people to do so.
After the 2006 United States Grand Prix, Bernie Ecclestone announced that the Grand Prix of Mexico would return for the 2009 season. The race has not appeared on any calendar since this announcement, and this could mean a delay of the race yet longer.
