Round 19 of the 2016 world championship took place at the legendary Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez (Formula 1)

Mexican Grand Prix organizers say next month's Formula One race in Mexico City will go ahead as planned despite the capital being hit by its deadliest natural disaster in three decades.

But the Mexico grand prix spokesman said formula one has the green light for now.

Organizers do not expect the devastation to disrupt the race, which is due to take place at the end of next month, with the track escaping undamaged in the disaster.

Federico Gonzalez, managing director of the Mexican GP, said it was "lucky" that the circuit was not damaged and that the motorsport community's main priority is the "recovery of the city".

Rodrigo Sanchez, marketing head of the Autodromo Hermanos Rodrigues, said the track was not damaged.

"We need to remain together in the bad and the good, not only in the bad".

... Mexican businessman Carlos Slim, who's patriotic driver program helped propel Force India driver Sergio Perez into F1, is supporting relief efforts by pledging five pesos for every peso donated - a pledge also matched by Perez himself. Perez, 27, is now the only Mexican driver on the F1 grid and the poster boy for his home race.

Perez wrote on social media: "I'm deeply concerned about what my country is living". Read the rest at Express Newsline
