Mexican Grand Prix set to announce new contract

The mayor of Mexico City has revealed the Mexican Grand Prix will remain on the Formula One calendar beyond 2019, with details of the new contract due to be announced on Thursday.

The Mexican Grand Prix returned to the F1 calendar in 2015 and October's race in Mexico City will be the last of the original five-year deal. A renewal was uncertain at the start of the year after public funding was withdrawn from the race, but the grand prix is now set to form part of a 22-race calendar in 2020.

A tweet on Wednesday featuring a video from Mexico City's mayor, Claudia Sheinbaum, confirmed the news.
