Scheduling: The 2015 Mexican Grand Prix

For the first time in over twenty years, Formula 1 returns to the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez in Mexico City for round 17 of the 2015 Formula One season.

With both championship battles now over, the ten teams and 20 drivers are fighting for pride more than anything else in the remaining three rounds of the championship.

As in America, Sky Sports have exclusive live coverage of the racing from Mexico, with BBC broadcasting highlights on Saturday and Sunday in the fringes of primetime. The main piece of programming from Sky aside from their live action is a new edition of Tales from the Vault, focussing on the original Lotus team.

  1. qually must be effected by not being live a lot. It only has 24hrs and then you wont watch when the race is over. I personally a die hard f1 as watch less qualifying this year than the last 15. I just don’t feel interested in it any more.
