The F1 juggernaut rolls into the Autodromo Hermano Rodriguez for the first time since 1992, with Lewis Hamilton arriving as the newly-crowned 2015 Drivers' champion. There is little significance in both the championships after it was wrapped up in Austin Texas. The Constructors' crown was clinched by Mercedes in Russia at the Sochi Autodrome.

The Mexican circuit, however, will grab all the attention as it is a first for all the drivers on the grid. The organisers have claimed it to be the second fastest F1 track on the calendar and the layout will back that up with the two long straights that will act as the DRS zones during the race.
Like the Circuit of the Americas, the weekend could be disrupted by thunderstorms and rain is expected for both Saturday's qualifying session and the race on Sunday.
