Mexico will return to the Formula One world championship in 2015 after being absent from the calendar since 1992, the sport's ringmaster Bernie Ecclestone confirmed on Wednesday.

"I'm happy to announce we've concluded an agreement to have a race in 2015," Ecclestone told www.formula1.com.

The race will be run at the 4.421-kilometre Mexico City circuit.

Mexico first hosted a race in 1963 but was last staged in 1992 when it was won by Nigel Mansell in a Williams.
