The organizers of the upcoming race in Mexico named the last turn at the renovated Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in the time of Nigel Mansell, the 1992 world champion.

In the 1990 race, the Briton overtook Gerhard Berger on the outside of the last corner, then known as Peraltada, with a one-off maneuver. The turn was later changed for safety reasons, but the organizers of the Mexican race say: "We couldn't find a better section on this 4,3-kilometer track to dedicate it to Mansell in honor."

At the time of her appointment, the racing legend said: “I have good and solid memories of racing in Mexico. The people, the energy and the trail itself remained in me. When I learned that the bend would bear my name, I was honored. Honored, proud and happy, all equally. In doing so, I remembered the overtaking of 1990, when I finished the race second behind teammate Alain Prost. I don’t have to believe it’s twenty-five years of that and that it’s been twenty-three since I last drove on a Mexican racetrack in the 1992 season. I kept a close eye on what the organizers did with the track, and I can’t wait to see that later this year. ”
