The 1990 Mexican Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez on June 24, 1990. It was sixth race of the 1990 Formula One season, the 14th Mexican Grand Prix and the fifth since the Mexico City circuit returned to the Formula One calendar in 1986. It was held over 69 laps of the four kilometre circuit for a race distance of 305 kilometres.

The race was won by reigning world champion, French driver Alain Prost driving a Ferrari 641. In winning Prost became only the second multiple-winner in Mexican Grand Prix history, joining British driver Jim Clark. It was Prost's second win for the year after winning the Brazilian Grand Prix. Prost won the race by 26 seconds over his British team mate Nigel Mansell. Third was Austrian driver Gerhard Berger driving a McLaren MP4/5B.

Prost's win and Berger's third coupled points leader Ayrton Senna stopping with a puncture late in the race allowed both drivers to close to be eight points behind Senna.
