The Mexican Grand Prix runs this weekend from the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez.
As with most races, FP1 and FP3 will be run on NBCSports.com via live stream, with FP2, qualifying and the race televised live in their entireties.
Mexico shifts its clocks back one hour at 2 a.m. local time on Sunday for Daylight Savings Time, so although the time in Mexico City is still the same time zone as U.S. Central Time, it is not actually the same time.
The race rolls off at 1 p.m. local time in Mexico City, which is 2 p.m. CT and 3 p.m. ET in the U.S.
A full breakdown of times and details are below:
F1 MEXICAN GRAND PRIX – SUNDAY AT 3 P.M. ET ON NBC
Hamilton continued his dominance at Circuit of the Americas in the United States Grand Prix this past Sunday, taking the checkered flag for the fourth time in five races at the venue since 2012. Hamilton gained seven points on Rosberg, who finished in second place and now holds a 26-point lead with three races remaining. This Sunday’s race will have significant implications on the outcome of the 2016 championship, and Rosberg has an outside chance to clinch the title if he wins the race and Hamilton finishes worse than 10th. Rosberg won last year’s Mexican Grand Prix, while Hamilton finished in second place.
