ManagementEdit

A1 Team Mexico owners are Juan Cortina and Julio Jáuregui.[1]

The technical assistance was initially provided by DAMS in 2005-06.[1] However, new regulations brought in for 2006-07 stated that a racing team could not work with more than two A1 Teams. As DAMS worked with A1 Team France and South Africa in 2006-07, Mexico created a bespoke race team named Teamex to replace DAMS.[2] In 2007-08, the team was run by Team Craft, while Escuderia del Mediterraneo took over for 2008-09.

HistoryEdit

2008–09 seasonEdit

Driver: Davíd Garza Pérez

2007–08 seasonEdit

Drivers: Salvador Durán, Davíd Garza Pérez, Jorge Goeters, Michel Jourdain, Jr., David Martínez

Team Mexico were relatively uncompetitive in 2007-08. After scoring well in Zandvoort, the team only scored again twice, en route to 16th in the championship.

2006–07 seasonEdit

Drivers: Salvador Durán, Juan Pablo Garcia, David Martínez, Sergio Pérez

Again, mixed fortunes for the Mexican team. Four podiums in the early season, but no points after Indonesia, left them in 10th position in the championship.

2005–06 seasonEdit

Drivers: Luis Diaz, Salvador Durán, David Martínez

Mixed fortunes came over Team Mexico in the inaugural season. A clean sweep of the American rounds and three podiums, brought them to 10th place in the championship.
