Mexican Grand Prix deal reportedly signed for 2015

Sergio Perez viva Mexico

Formula One will return to Mexico next season according to reports in the country.

The Reforma newspaper claims that Bernie Ecclestone has signed a contract to revive the race as of 2015, inking an initial five-year deal with an option to extend the stay for five more.

The grand prix will be held at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez, which previously hosted F1 between 1986 and 1992. The most recent international single-seater event held at the venue was an A1GP race in 2008.

The report suggests that the race will be held in October or November, most likely slotting into the calendar immediately before or after the US Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.

Nigel Mansell won the most recent Mexican Grand Prix in 1992. The country now has two drivers on the F1 grid in Sergio Perez and Esteban Gutierrez.
