Following on from bright and sunny conditions at last week's United States Grand Prix, similarly pleasant conditions are in store for F1 teams as the circus moves onto Mexico City this weekend.

Located in the Valley of Mexico at an altitude of 2,240 meters, Mexico City has a subtropical climate with over 2,500 hours of sunshine per year.

Spectators at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez on Friday can expect the Mercury to hit 29 degrees Celsius, with lows of 14 degrees at night, according to our friends at

Sunny conditions to continue all weekend long

Since returning to the F1 calendar in 2015, the Mexico City Grand Prix has always been run in dry conditions, and this streak is set to continue in 2022, with both Saturday and Sunday expected to see clear skies and highs of 27 degrees.

In contrast to the biblical deluges that F1 encountered in recent events at Singapore and Japan, the Mexico City Grand Prix will be an entirely dry affair, with Pirelli's Intermediate and Wet tyres set to remain in their blankets all weekend long.
