Future of Mexican GP in doubt as government pulls funding | 2020 F1 season

The future of the Mexican Grand Prix is in doubt as the federal government has decided to cease funding the race after this year.
The Mexico City head of government Claudia Sheinbaum, a member of the victorious Juntos Haremos Historia alliance, told El Financeiro the 400 million pesos (£16 million) spent on the race each year would be allocated to the ‘Mayan Train’ railway project.
The Mexican Grand Prix has been a popular addition to the calendar since it returned in 2015.
It is one of five races on this year’s schedule which does not have a contract to appear on the 2020 F1 calendar.
