Session times for the 2022 F1 Mexican GP

Find out when the 2022 Mexico City GP takes place, including the F1 session times for practice, qualifying, and the race


After a pulsating 2022 US Grand Prix, which saw Max Verstappen equal the record for most wins in a single season, Formula 1 heads to Mexico City for the 2022 Mexico City Grand Prix.

While both the Drivers’ and Constructors’ championships have been decided, the focus will now switch to individual records with Verstappen looking to become the most dominant driver over a single race season.

After coming agonizingly close to victory, Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton will be looking to secure his first win of 2022, the British driver fighting to maintain his record of winning at least one race in every single season he has contested.

Finally, the Ferrari team will be looking to end the season strongly after falling off during the second half of the season despite having arguably the fastest car in qualifying trim.

The 2022 Mexico City Grand Prix will take place on the 4.304km Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez circuit with qualifying scheduled for 22:00 CEST (15:00 local time on Saturday) on Saturday, October 29, and the race at 21:00 CEST (14:00 local time) on Sunday, October 30.

Who won the last Mexico City Grand Prix?

Verstappen took a commanding win at the 2021 Mexico City Grand Prix, with the Duchman finishing some 16 seconds in front of Hamilton.

The result left Verstappen in a strong position to claim his first-ever Drivers’ Championship, with Hamilton needing to pretty much win the remaining races to claim an unprecedented eighth drivers’ title.

Hamilton’s teammate Valtteri Bottas would start from pole, with the Finn losing the lead after turn 1 and dropping down the order after tangling with Daniel Ricciardo.

Verstappen’s teammate Sergio Perez would briefly lead the race, becoming the first Mexican to lead his home race. Perez would go on to finish third thus becoming the first-ever Mexican to stand on the podium at his home event.
