If you are a younger fan of Formula One, you may not realize the history behind this track. It was designed to have a Monza feel to it and still retains that feel. However, one of the most famous features of this track is called the Peraltada corner. The problem was, the corner had to be reworked because the rules would not allow such a corner to be used any longer. There would have to be a runoff created because it was hard concrete, but that simply could not be done.

Mexicans are normally big fans of Formula One, but having the Mexican F1 driver, Sergio Perez, in the field is sure to draw many more. When the race was run before the hiatus, Perez was only 2 years old. Even with the changes to the track, he will get some time driving in front of the stands. He stated that he is excited to once again go through the stands, and see 20k+ fans screaming and waving the Mexican flag in his honor. Have a look at some of the other races and results this year.

Perez is ranked in the top 10 for the points this year, but that will not stop this Guadalajara native from doing his best. He will surely make a strong showing in this race, whether he wins or loses. It is also interesting that Perez comes from a racing family. His brother, Antonio Perez, is the champion of the local NASCAR series. Because part of this track is used for NASCAR, he will be driving on the same roads his brother wins on. That said, Perez will still have to deal with top competitors in this race.

Once again, Lewis Hamilton will likely make quite a showing in the race this year. However, He will have some great competition. One of them is the 2017 course champion, Max Verstappen. Others include Sebastian Vettel, Valtteri Bottas, and others. The big question is who will take the checkered flag and who will win the championship. Tune in to find out.
