F1 to return to Mexico?

FIA President Jean Todt has said that Mexico may return to the F1 calendar int he near future. Mexico last held an F1 race in 1992.

“As part of the meetings I am doing I intend to see the Hermanos Rodriguez circuit,” Todt explained.

“Today Mexico is an economically strong country and I am convinced that in the future it (F1) is possible,” Todt is quoted by Europa Press.

“We know that the races have a cost. There are also a number of criteria for the approval of an event, especially in the safety parameter.”

The only Mexican driver in F1 at present is Sergio Perez.

Meanwhile, Todt – apparently referring to the recent blown exhaust saga – has been quoted as saying F1 needs “more specific” rules for the future.

“The teams interpret the rules in such a bizarre way that they break them. We must be more specific, so that everyone applies them,” he is quoted by the Italian agency AGI.
