Hamilton and Verstappen influence set to feature in brand new F1 fan experience

Formula 1 fans are set to get a taste of driving one of Lewis Hamilton or Max Verstappen's cars next month with the opening of F1 DRIVE.

The first official F1 karting experience opens its doors to the public on February 6, with tickets going on sale at 10am (GMT) on January 25.

The brand new track is located below the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium South Stand and kicks off a 15-year partnership between the football club and Formula 1.

F1 DRIVE London

F1 DRIVE is set to bring fans an experience as close to the real thing as possible, while also catering for a range of abilities and ages.

In-kart audio with sound effects taken from onboard recordings of Hamilton, Verstappen and Charles Leclerc will create a lifelike feeling of being behind the wheel of an F1 car.

Sky's David Croft and Naomi Schiff will also feature in live commentary and driving tips.

Fans can also get a taste of what it's like to activate DRS, with the karts having their very own button to open the rear wing when close enough to the driver in front.

Accredited by the National Karting Association, three different track layouts are on offer – all of which have taken inspiration from iconic circuits on the calendar.

The 'Future Stars Track', 'Sprint Track' and Super Circuit' provide different challenges to racers – with the latter allowing fans to replicate an F1 weekend in the form of practice and qualifying ahead of lights out for the feature race.
