With over 400,000 people flocking to Northamptonshire to witness the spectacle first-hand, the energy and octane in the crowd was palpable, as British fans cheered on their British drivers: Sir Lewis Hamilton, George Russell, and Lando Norris. Celebrities took part in the action too, with global A-listers including Gordon Ramsay, Tom Cruise, Sir Jackie Stewart, and loads more adding gravitas to momentum that accelerated as the race went on, especially as it became clear that Team Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz would achieve his first ever Formula 1 victory. Over 140,000 people were present on Race Day, with a majority being under 30, showing the sheer growth of Formula 1 as a worldwide sport dominating viewership interests motorsports with a mass appeal that NASCAR has not captured in the U.S. or beyond. Here’s an up-close-and-personal look at the hype – best part: we’re only mid-way through the 2022 season, so lots to look forward to.
