Description As the name suggests, the history of Mexico's Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is interwoven with that of brothers Ricardo and Pedro Rodriguez. In 1961 Ricardo emerged as a driver for Ferrari - aged just 19. This prompted the decision to build a circuit in Magdalena Mixhuca park. The aim was to host formula one racing in 1962 but this was never realised and instead a non-championship event went ahead and the teams duly gathered at the venue at the end of October. With Ferrari not in attendance, Ricardo Rodriguez entered in a Rob Walker-run Lotus 24. In qualifying, he crashed and was killed.
