How one retro event could prove an alluring prospect for Formula 1 stars

By:

While Formula 1 drivers taking part in retro events can prove costly, as Charles Leclerc discovered at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix, the Goodwood Revival could prove an interesting experiment for today's stars. As the event's own Tourist Trophy race proves it means serious business, a race for current F1 drivers feels as though it’s in line with where the event is currently at

It never fails to pique the interest when a current Formula 1 driver gets their taste of historic machinery. But as Autosport opined back in May, shortly after Charles Leclerc shunted an ex-Niki Lauda Ferrari 312B3 during a run at the Monaco Historic Grand Prix weekend, these demonstrations can be a poisoned chalice.

The ever-present risk of stuffing a car of great provenance, especially when it’s down to a random mechanical failure, or simply the act of pootling around at slow speeds ensure these promo events are often a thankless task.
