F1 stars and their SWANKY number plates
This season marks the 71st season of Formula 1 racing. Having started in Australia, drivers are competing for that top spot over 20 Grand Prix where it will end in Abu Dhabi in November and a driver will be crowned champion.
This will be the first season since 1994 that reigning drivers champion Nico Rosberg will not compete. This comes after announcing his retirement in 2016.
Tickets to the Rolex British Grand Prix event ranged from as little as £66.00 all the way up to a Paddock Club Package which started at £3,453.47. If you are an avid F1 fan however, this could be worth every penny as they claim you could be so close to the pits, you could feel the heat of the engine!
With the current leader board standing with Sebastian Vettel (Ferrari) in 1st place, Lewis Hamilton (Mercedes) in 2nd and Valterri Bottas (Mercedes) in 3rd we are waiting with bated breath as we watch them battle it out to know whether Hamilton will take the crown and the UK will be at the top once again.
