Max in LaLaLand!

Max Verstappen and the Team to attend the F1 Hollywood Festival ahead of the US Grand Prix!

The Team are pleased to announce a starring role in the latest F1 Festival, taking place on Hollywood Boulevard ahead of the United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas.

In between the grands prix of Mexico and the USA, Formula One will take over tinseltown’s iconic thoroughfare on Tuesday, October 29th for a static display of F1 cars past and present, with a live event to follow on Wednesday 30th. Max will be in the driving seat for us, lighting up the Boulevard in 2011’s spectacular double championship-winning RB7. Performing three runs with the mighty V8, Max will thrill crowds expected to number in the tens of thousands, with an eclectic array of doughnuts, burn-outs and speed runs.

The high-adrenaline live show is the latest in a growing portfolio of global F1 Live events, and the third to take place in the USA, following hugely successful events in Miami and Chicago. Max and the RB7 will be joined in the display by Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas and Renault’s Daniel Ricciardo, promoting both the upcoming US Grand Prix at the Circuit of the Americas but also restating F1’s commitment to racing in North America

Sean Bratches, Managing Director of Commercial Operations – Formula 1 said: “LA is an iconic city, known for all things showbiz and we are extremely excited to be adding F1 to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, as we take over the Boulevard for the first time. It’s very important that fans get to experience F1 in city centres, and that we showcase what Formula 1 has to offer to the US market.”
