This has been the opening ceremonies of the Mexico GP


The Mexican round of Formula 1 conquered the world with ceremonies that today are a benchmark for all Grand Prix.

Colorful, fun and highly cultural, the Mexican opening ceremonies are fundamental pieces of the F1ESTA.

Formula 1 has awarded the Mexico GP with the "Trophy for Best Grand Prix of the Year" for five consecutive seasons (2015-2019) and it has not been a coincidence. In addition to the organization of the race, the alternate events, the amenities, the attendees and the transportation logistics, one of the fundamental pieces of this success has been the opening ceremonies.

These very Mexican shows have become a benchmark for all the competitions on the World Cup calendar and have even been copied by some venues, which increases the value of what is organized in the country.

The contest to make an alternate helmet for Sergio Pérez was won by Juan Sánchez with his "Eternal Love", a work that recalled the sugar skulls that adorn the offerings of the Day of the Dead. In addition, the 48 'Grid Girls' showed elegant, colorful dresses with motifs of Mexican culture, made by Pineda Covalin, a world-famous avant-garde Mexican fashion house.

Raramuri art. In 2016, the world got to know one more quality of the Rarámuri culture. A total of 26 girls and young people from the Community of Yermo y Parres, Chihuahua, were in charge of singing the Mexican National Anthem dressed in beautiful flowery dresses made specifically by indigenous artisans.

Day of the Dead. The closeness of the Grand Prix with the celebration of the Day of the Dead provided the ideal theme to show the world one of the most representative festivals of our country: the Day of the Dead.

The Day of the Dead Parade in Mexico City was present at the Hermanos Rodríguez Autodrome and dozens of Catrinas, monumental skulls, the orange of the cempasúchil flowers and the color of the mobile offerings made the 2017 ceremony one of the most spectacular of the world.

Tree of Life and Alebrijes. The poster of the 2018 Mexican Grand Prix announced with a beautiful Tree of Life (crafts from the center of the country) what would be experienced at the opening ceremony. After the Parade of Drivers, the straight of the Hermanos Rodríguez Autodrome was filled with color with the appearance of dancers and alebrijes almost two meters high that showed a fantasy world in which the characteristics of various animals merge to create a being mythical, spectacular

Guelaguetza. One of the most important cultural shows in Mexico is the Guelaguetza. Tourists from all over the world gather in the state of Oaxaca to witness the artistic representation that takes place right in the middle of the year. The organization of the Mexican GP wanted to pay tribute and showed the most representative of this party by bringing together more than 500 Oaxacan dancers and more than 100 volunteers from the eight different regions of that state to fill the Autodromo Hermanos with dance, music, magic and color Rodriguez.

Folkloric dance and chopped paper. In the 2021 edition, the attendees had a celebration of color and dance thanks to the National Folkloric Dance Company under the direction of Master Nieves Paniagua, who seeks the recognition and professional dignity of the customs and traditions of the native peoples, faithfully representing their dances and dances. In addition, homage was paid to the artisans of “papel picado”, a piece of ornamental paper that accompanies national and religious festivals in almost the entire national territory, and the emblems of the 10 teams that give life to the World Championship were designed in colorful colors. sheets of delicate paper.

For this edition, in the celebration of the 60 years of Formula 1 in our country, the FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX OF MEXICO CITY 2022 Presented by Heineken prepares a celebration that will maintain its level and that promises surprises at all times. From the visual art to the pre-race parade, the ceremony will have the stamp that has placed the Mexican GP as the race to follow, and thousands of fans will be able to be part of the F1ESTA from October 28 to 30 at the Hermanos Rodríguez Autodrome .
