CDMX mayor says she won’t go to F1 as it’s a ‘fifi’ event


The Grand Prix will leave an economic benefit for Mexico City of more than 15.5 billion pesos.

The head of government of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, announced that she will not go to the Formula 1 Grand Prix that will take place from October 28 to 30 at the Hermanos Rodríguez Autodrome, considering it a “fifi” event .

I don’t like going to those events and unless they give away tickets and that no, no, you see that we are against privileges, so I don’t like going to that event even if they give us the ticket, rather they use it who do not have access.

Sheinbaum anticipated that the tickets -with a cost of between 6 and 25 thousand pesos- offered by the organizers as a courtesy to the City government, will be donated to primary and secondary school students .

“They already gave us tickets, the first year we gave them to the children of Pilares; the second year we gave them to doctors, nurses to health workers; and this year we will give them to primary and secondary school boys and girls”.

The F1 event was announced by the Ministry of Economic Development (SEDECO) itself as one of the most important in the world that contributes to consolidating the economic recovery of the capital.

Even the head of SEDECO, Fadlala Akabani Hneide, announced that the race will leave an economic spill of 15 thousand 536 million 705 thousand pesos.

The economic spill of the Grand Prize will be composed mainly of:

-The sale of tickets, for 4 thousand 731 million 264 thousand pesos

-7 thousand 236 million pesos for coverage, transmission and media

-tourist services for one thousand 369 million 341 thousand pesos

-sale of articles and souvenirs one thousand 568 million pesos

-sale of food and beverages inside the Autodromo and nearby areas 199 million 500 thousand pesos

-hotel activity 264 million 600 thousand pesos

-Transport services will be 168 million pesos.
