The ABB FIA Formula E World Championship is all set for its sixth appearance in Mexico City. We're talking plenty of sun, ultra-passionate fans and a healthy dose of wheel-to-wheel combat as the drivers battle for the win in front of the legendary Foro Sol.
Created for the arrival of Formula E in 2016, the street course makes use of the legendary Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit. With race-ready surface and long corners, Mexico City is not only one of the fastest tracks in the Formula E calendar, it's also the highest at 2,250m above sea level.
The track layout for the Mexico City E-Prix features a mix of long and fast straights and a technical infield section through the legendary Foro Sol stadium. Returning to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit after a brief visit to Puebla last season, Mexico City is a true spectacle on the Formula E race calendar.
Starting on the traditional start/finish straight, the Formula E grid will shoot down into turn one - home to some brave late-braking manoeuvres. After a long and fast Turn 2, the pack will make their way around Turn 3, which breaks off left into a four turn sequence.
Looping back around a hairpin (Turn 5), Turns 6 and 7 get technical, with a straight and sharp right-hand bend (Turn 8) leading into the legendary Foro Sol stadium section (Turns 9-13). Leaving the stadium the drivers will then jostle for position out of the iconic Peraltada curve (Turn 15) in the run to the finish line.
