Nico Rosberg to join star Formula One lineup at 2017 Goodwood Festival of Speed

Formula One fans heading to this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed in the U.K. can once again get up close to the latest cars and stars from the Championship from 29th June to 2nd July. The sell-out Festival is the only event, other than the British Grand Prix, where British fans can see so many F1 cars in action in one place, with an unrivalled level of access to both cars and drivers.

Reigning F1 World Champion Nico Rosberg will be roaring up the famous Goodwood Hill on Sunday 2nd July in his 2014 Mercedes F1 W05 Hybrid, while Russian Grand Prix winner Valtteri Bottas will take the wheel for Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport on Saturday 1st July. Alongside a glittering lineup of historic F1 cars, including over 20 Ferrari single-seaters in celebration of the Scuderia’s 70th Anniversary, will also be modern F1 cars from McLaren, Renault and Williams.

The Renault Sport F1 Team will be celebrating 40 years in the sport and will be bringing its current driver Jolyon Palmer to the festivities, along with reserve driver Sergey Sirotkin. Former Williams F1 Champions Alan Jones and Damon Hill will be accompanying the Williams team in celebrating its 40th anniversary, bringing an unrivalled experience of the F1 World Championship to West Sussex. In total, there will be more than 60 Formula One cars at the event, celebrating seven decades of the sport.
