Months before Mexico makes an eagerly awaited return to the F1 calendar, Red Bull will bring F1 power to the people with a demonstration run in the heart of Mexico City on Saturday 27 June.

After a 23-year absence, F1 will return to Mexico in November at the city's legendary Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez and to kick off the celebrations Daniel Ricciardo and Carlos Sainz will pilot the team's double-championship winning RB7 at a specially constructed course in the city's most famous and most historic square - the Zocalo.

Officially known as Plaza de la Constitución, the Zocalo not only features the city's cathedral but also the ruins of the great Aztec city of Tenochtitlan, with the ancient complex's Templo Mayor, the seat of Aztec power, just one block away.

Spectators at the free public event will witness three-time grand prix-winner Daniel Ricciardo and Toro Rosso's Carlos Sainz, put the Renault-powered V8 through its paces around the perimeter of the 57,600m2 plaza.

"I'm really looking forward to this very special trip to Mexico," said Daniel. "The demo runs in the city centre should be amazing and everyone is up for putting on a really big show.

"The square looks massive so I think I should be able to really give the car a good workout," he added. "Mexico City's huge and I know that Mexican people are really into F1, so I'm looking forward to seeing just how big a crowd we can bring out on the day!"

"I'm really looking forward to my trip to Mexico," added Sainz. "I have no memory of it, but my parents tell me I have actually been there before, when I was about two or three years old. Mexico City is a very interesting place to visit and what I do know is that it's always special to drive a Formula 1 car through city streets. It's a great way for people to get an idea what F1 is about before we return for the first Grand Prix to be held in Mexico in a very long time. I'll be trying to put on the best show possible for all the spectators. Come along and see us!"
