Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez
Gerardo Nieto

Throughout its history, since its opening in 1959, this race track has felt the speed of pilots like Ayrton Senna, Michael Schumacher and Emerson Fittipaldi; as a concert venue, it has witnessed shows by singers like Madonna and Paul McCartney and bands like Pink Floyd, Metallica and The Rolling Stones; it is home to festivals like Vive Latino and Corona Capital. Pope John Paul II even celebrated a collective mass here during his fourth visit to Mexico City.

For the return of F1 racing to Mexico in 2015, the venue was upgraded with facilities like a control tower, three footbridges, a paddock club for five thousand spectators, and a suites building. The track was repaved using modified-polymer asphalt, with no cold joints for greatest skid resistance. As a final touch, 33 garages were remodeled as well as the permanent and temporary grandstands.
