Footman James Announce Lead Partnership at MotorSport Magazine's F1 Season Preview Evening

On Friday 8th March 2019, guests from across the motoring industry will join together at the historic IET London: Savoy Place, for a night that will get motoring fans gears racing at the Formula 1 Preview Evening, hosted by MotorSport Magazine.

The evening will begin with complimentary welcome drinks in the Maxwell Library, a newly-built space at the heart of Savoy Place, with private riverside balconies overlooking London’s skyline, before heading into the Turing Lecture Theatre for the F1 season preview talk and Q&A session.

Better yet; you can be part of all the action and join the likes of 1996 F1 World Champion and Sky F1 pundit Damon Hill, former F1 driver and Sky Sports pundit Karun Chandhok and Grand Prix editor Mark Hughes, for an evening that looks at the season ahead.

Chaired by MotorSport’s very own Simon Aaron, the panel will be discussing all the core elements approaching the 2019 F1 season, how regulation changes will affect the cars, new drivers, and Lewis Hamilton’s World Title challenge, plus much more. Take this time to grasp the opportunity and ask three of the most knowledgeable names in motorsport your burning questions about the 2019 season.

2019’s Formula 1 season will be full of excitement and exhilaration as this year we see the likes of Lewis Hamilton defend his championship title and Red Bull entering the season with Honda and McLaren seeking reclamation.

David Bond, Managing Director at Footman James commented, ‘We’re delighted to support the Formula 1 Preview Evening as the lead partner. The evening will be absolutely fascinating for anyone who enjoys Formula 1 and what better panel to provide us with some real insight into the anticipated twists and turns of the season.’
