Formula 1 will be heading from the USA to Mexico for the second leg of the triple header, from Austin, Texas to Mexico City to be more precise. Some of the freight will transported by trucks over a distance of some 1,500 kilometers while the actual cars will go as air freight from COTA to the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is located at an altitude of over 2,200 meters, making it the highest circuit on the entire F1 calendar. This will have a big impact on the cars’ performance and present an unusual challenge in terms of cooling. By way of comparison, Austin is just 150 meters above sea level.
Immediately after the checkered flag has fallen in Mexico, F1 teams and drivers will move on to Brazil. The triple header will conclude at Sao Paulo, and then there will be a short break before the final double header of the year gets under way with a return to Las Vegas and the season finale at Abu Dhabi.
