Lucas di Grassi about Mexico City

“My memories of the Mexican E-Prix are mixed. In the 2015/2016 season, I crossed the finish line in position one and was subsequently disqualified. Last season, I celebrated my first regular victory there. The track suits us well. So as far as that goes, I hope that we’re going to do well again next season. The Mexican fans are so passionate – it’s always very enjoyable to race there.”

Traffic in Mexico City

20 million people live in the metropolitan area of Mexico City and nearly nine million in the core of the city. More than four million passenger cars, 120,000 taxis, 28,000 buses and tens of thousands of trucks travel daily in and around Mexico’s capital city – these are the facts. And the results: According to the “IBM Commuter Pain Index,” the 300,000 commuters need almost three hours per day to get to work in the business districts. By contrast, the mobility situation looks better within the conurbation. Local residents and tourists can choose their preferred means of transportation in an effectively developed public transit system: radio cabs, buses or the subway with a total of 195 stations.
