Check out these great snaps courtesy of Peter Windsor. 1962 marked the debut of the Mexican Grand Prix as a part of the Formula 1 World Championship, with the first ever Mexican GP of 1962 having been run as a non-championship event. The race was won by Jim Clark, who would go on to drive his Lotus 25 to his first overall F1 World Championship during the season. Jack Brabham would place second, his first podium finish since winning the World Championship whilst driving for Cooper in 1960.
