Can home hero Perez provide Mexico's latest magic F1 moment?

By:

In the long history of Mexican involvement in F1 there has yet to be a Mexican winner of the Mexican GP. Is that about to change, asks BEN EDWARDS?

Anniversaries create cause for celebration and have become a useful way for event organisers to ramp up interest. A few weeks ago I was commentating at the Goodwood Revival, a motorsport event based on racing that took place from 1948 to 1966. The organisers generated a huge buzz by marking the 75th year of the Ferrari brand, as well as the recognition of Graham Hill’s first world championship title (1962), which drew in a remarkable collection of assorted racing cars that he had driven. 

The Mexican Grand Prix is also about to make a big noise about its 60th anniversary, despite being an irregular feature on the calendar during that time. The first Formula 1 race held at the Magdalena Mixhuca Park in Mexico City took place in November 1962 and, while it was a non-championship GP on that occasion, the event was very significant.
