26-28 October - How will the weather affect this year's Mexican Grand Prix?

In 2015 Formula 1 returned to the Hermanos Rodriguez circuit for the first time in many years, following upgrades to the track. The event is popular with drivers and fans alike, and returns again for 2017.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.

You can check the weather forecast for other events through the Events Calendar.
