The Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez is a motorsport race track, with a length of 4.304km and 17 turns. It gets its name from popular racing drivers, Ricardo, and Pedro Rodriguez.
This circuit started bearing this name almost immediately after its opening when Ricardo Rodriguez died while practicing for the 1962 Mexican Grand Prix non-championship. Nine years later, his brother Pedro Rodriguez, died while driving. The Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez which dates as far back as 2015, has been the host of the Formula E Mexico City Grand Prix. In times past, it was an event that occurred in two different periods, using distinct layouts. This format last happened in 1992.
The Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez circuit is situated within the public park of the Magdalena Mixhuca Sports City in the southeast region of Mexico City. The government is responsible for its ownership. However, it is currently being handled by Corporacion Interamericana de Entretenimiento, via OCESA which happens to be one of the subsidiaries of the CIE. This motordrome went through a prominent renovation under the directives of Hermann Tilke, a prequel to the relaunch of Formula One in 2015. The front straight got a little extension, and it was reconstructed to contain a paddock and a new media center.
The Formula E Mexico schedule received verification for the fourth consecutive year in 2018. This verification was given by the FIA World Motor Sport Council, precisely on 7th June 2018. It was scheduled for the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, situated in the southeast of Mexico City.
