Formula 1 is returning to Mexico this year,  more precisely to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez which will host the Mexican Grand Prix in November.

FIA's Charlie Whiting recently visited the race's site and was pleased with the ongoing work conducted by Christian Epp on behalf of master circuit architect Hermann Tilke, and which appears in its final stages.

"I am impressed with the progress and quality of the work in general," Whiting told Spain's El Mundo Deportivo. "I was here barely a month ago and the progress is significant.,"

The track retains a historic link with its original layout although several sections have been radically changed, like the famous Peralta bend which preceded the main straight. The Mexican Grand Prix last took place in 1992 and was won by Williams' Nigel Mansell.
