Mexico returns to Formula One after 23 years

Paris: Mexico will return to the Formula One world championship in 2015 after being absent from the calendar since 1992, the sport`s ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone confirmed on Wednesday.

"I`m happy to announce we`ve concluded an agreement to have a race in 2015," Ecclestone told

The race will be run at the 4.421-kilometre Mexico City circuit.

Mexico first hosted a race in 1963 but was last staged in 1992 when it was won by Nigel Mansell in a Williams.
