Volcano erupts near Mexico GP site

Hot on the heels of Hurricane Patricia, the F1 world now has its eye on another natural phenomenon.

75 kilometres from the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez in Mexico City, the Popocatepetl or ‘El Popo’ volcano has erupted.

De Telegraaf, a Dutch newspaper, said the eruption has hurled a huge cloud of ash some 2,500 metres into the air, which set off in a northerly direction.

And, as in Austin last week, the threat of heavy rain is also hanging above the Mexican grand prix, with qualifying most in danger of being wet.
