The annual Goodwood Festival of Speed proved an incredible hit once again, with a host of current and former F1 figures competing as the star attractions in a massive field of racing cars from across the racing spectrum.
The annual event, which this year celebrated the 60th anniversary of the FIA Formula One World Championship, took place in the grounds of Sussex’s Goodwood House.
McLaren team mates – and 2008 and 2009 world champions respectively – Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button were among many who headed the bill. Both drove behind the wheel of Alain Prost’s 1987 McLaren TAG MP4-2C as well as an Mercedes-powered MP4-23 of 2008.
Representing Red Bull were the likes of Mark Webber, their test driver Daniel Ricciardo and team designer Adrian Newey, who was presented with one of his RB5 chassis’.
Also in attendance were the likes of Nico Rosberg, Nick Heidfeld, Nico Hülkenberg, Marc Gené, Bruno Senna, Karun Chandhok, Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen.
Representing some of the F1 figures from the past included champions Mika Hakkinen, Sir Jackie Stewart, Emerson Fittipaldi and John Surtees. Former F1 drivers Sir Stirling Moss, Jochen Mass, Patrick Tambay, Jackie Oliver, Vic Elford, Arturo Merzario, Richard Attwood, and Derek Bell were also at the event.
