Becomes the mythical layout of the circuit Hermanos Rodriguez to give shelter to a Formula 1 race, and host the GP of Mexico 2015. After years, the layout has been remodeled and smoothed to remove the camber and make it more secure, but also less exciting. Although the characteristics of the asphalt seems to give you the excitement that is missing with an asphalt very oily and slippery. Against are the stewards of the track, which seem to be very quick in doing its work.
The track was a little wet, nothing to do with the Us GP, but the cars have had outputs of track, spinning tops, and problems to maintain the lines. , Many riders have complained of going as ice and the choice of Pirelli’s tyres so conservative and hard it seems that does not make things easier. In the race it could make a single stop if the weather is too changeable and it runs dry, since it could be raining during this weekend.
Some, like Verstappen started the weekend very well, placing first in the time table of the free 1, but after missing a curve, but has crashed his car against the barriers at the final corner in the first laps of the free 2. Others such as McLaren have started with the wrong foot: Alonso has changed his engine for the problems experienced in Austin and will not be penalized for his 11th change of engine. His teammate, Button, hands down record penalty for putting a new engine in the free and other to run in qualifying and race, the two power units will cost 50 jobs on the grid.
Rosberg has not started well, when your rear brakes have been burnt down during the free. And we’ll see if the reliability does not become an added problem for the bikers in this circuit is so high (>2000m), the more heightened in the air, but the Turbo does not escape this problem, since they can choose to work at higher engine speeds to compensate for the losses due to the altitude or to choose not to risk in terms of reliability and work at lower revs. We will be watching to see how they behave the Turbo in this circuit that needs big power for the long straights in which they have appeared speeds of more than 360 km/h.

Remember that Alonso will have a penalty of 15 positions in the grill for a change of the ICE and the Button 50, so that it is very likely that both McLaren leave for last if the other computer does not have to change engines at the last minute… As I have already said, whatever happens, is expected to thrill and speeds that are already the highest in the calendar. We will also be attentive to the sky to see the weather forecasts, which seem to give rain for tomorrow and Sunday. Congratulations to the mexicans for this fantastic circuit!
