High-altitude, high-stake, and high-speed, Mexico City’s circuit is well loved for its action and traditional placement towards the end of the F1® season. With plenty to contend with on the track, including the eye watering speeds coming out of the Peraltada, Team Principals will need to be on their best form to reach the podium.
Suggested car setup for Autódromo Hermanos Rodriguez:
- Low speed cornering is crucial
- Focusing on high-speed cornering and DRS-top speed are also recommended
- Balanced circuit
Tips & Tricks
You can afford to be more aggressive in Mexico City, you’re nearing the end of the season, and the safety car can mask your tyre changes.
- If your powertrain components are damaged, and you can’t push too hard, aim for a one-stop strategy, leading on mediums and swapping to hards.
- You are likely to see the safety car, so plan that into your pit stop strategy, holding out to change your tyres if possible.
- If you plan to push, take advantage of the safety car by preserving your tyres, harvesting energy, and being aggressive under the green flag.
