Before Brazil, reflect on Mexico’s revival with Sam Posey (VIDEO)


This weekend sees the Brazilian Grand Prix come to light, but for one final look back at Mexico, we turn to the resident poet laureate in motorsports commentary, Sam Posey.

Posey’s essay from Mexico – “Mexico City’s Revival” – looks at how the race came back to Mexico City after a 23-year hiatus, while also noting how its revival brings about memories of other tracks forgotten by the F1 circus he’d like to see back.

And just as well, Posey looks into the future to see where he would love to see a new track born of the same modern day spirit, but while also retaining the allure of the past.

Rather than the post-race controversy that occurred over the final podium position in Mexico, let this be a tribute to the last Grand Prix before we kick things off in Sao Paulo tomorrow.
