"By 2020, the federal government has no longer contemplated this resource because it is allocating most of the fund to the completion of the Mayan tourist train or the Mayan train," said Sheinbaum in a conference.

The federal government allocated 400 million pesos to receive Formula One each year. However, its presence in the country could end the following year due to lack of resources.
So it seems that starting in 2020, the money that would have previously been allocated for the F1 race will be used instead to help fund the "Maya Train" project which seems to be an infrastructure project to provide train service to popular tourist destinations. 2019 is not at risk, but 2020 would be a question mark as far as how to make it work financially?

There's a brief description of the Mayan Train project at Yucatan Expat Life. Some highlights:

Quote:
The train is meant to get tourists off the beaten path, whisking them from bustling Cancun to less visited destinations, including Mérida, Izamal and Valladolid. It will reach as far as Palenque, in Chiapas, where archaeological ruins are the main attraction.
And:

Quote:
The medium-speed train will connect 12 stations along more than 930 miles of track. The cost is likely to be between US$6 billion and US$8 billion, more than double previous estimates.
