The list is very simple: Ricardo Rodriguez, Pedro Rodriguez, Adrian Fernandez Y Czech Perez.

Very talented…

Ricardo Rodriguez is a prodigy, a unicorn who lived too short among humans because his was from another dimension.

A teenager who dazzled Enzo Ferrari, qualifying second in his first Formula 1 Grand Prix, was called the champion of the category, certainly the youngest. The youngest of the Rodriguez family left this world too soon at the age of 20, but no one dares compare to him in natural talent and pure speed.

Ricardo’s problem was that it was like lightning, he arrived, stunned and made a total noise in the Mexican society of the early 60s, who idolized him without the need for social networks.

His prominence is almost legendary, a Prometheus who defied the gods, but an Icarus who flew high enough to melt the wax that had wings on his body before winning anything in F1.

Very complete…

Just as Ricardo is incomparable, his brother Pedro Rodríguez is a breed with only one copy.

Mexico made everything possible now

Adrien Fernandez doesn’t have the recognition he deserves to be a living legend of motorsport in Mexico, as he is believed to be more talented outside of a car than inside.

If he can win the Mexico City GP, if he hasn’t already, he will enter the idol category.
