    Organizers in Mexico City are putting on the finishing touches ahead of this weekend’s F1 Grand Prix. The racing series will return to the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez for the first time since ’92. “The track is ready,” said Rodrigo Sanchez, director of marketing and media relations at the Mexican F1 Grand Prix. “We are finalizing the setup for the weekend to open the gates [on Friday].” F1’s return to the Mexican capital will take place in front of a sellout crowd. The remodeled circuit will offer grandstand seating for around 110,000 fans, along with more than 30,000 general admission tickets. “There might be a ticket here and there, but we are basically sold out,” Sanchez said.
