Are you an F1 Future Star?

We’ve launched a nationwide competition, offering kart licence holders a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join their Formula 1® heroes on the start grid at this year’s Formula 1® 2020 Rolex British Grand Prix.

Open to all karters aged between seven and ten years old – on Sunday 19 July, the date of the British Grand Prix – the competition winners will become FIA ‘F1 Future Stars’ for the day, with VIP access to the Formula 1® Paddock and grid at Silverstone.

We are pleased to announce that nine-year-old Harry Freeman and eight-year-old Jesse Phillips are the first two 2020 ‘FIA F1 Future Stars’, having secured their places after winning the 2019 Motorsport UK Bambino Kart Time Trial and Race Championships respectively.

Motorsport UK and TeamSport are now looking for eight more youngsters to become ‘FIA F1 Future Stars’ at this year’s British Grand Prix.

The governing body is inviting all its kart competition licence holders within the specified age range (and other criteria) to record a short video message (approximately 30 seconds), introducing themselves and stating: why they want to be an ‘FIA F1 Future Star’; what it would mean to them to represent karting at the British Grand Prix; and who their F1 hero (past or present) is and why? This should be accompanied by a supporting email from their headteacher.

The video messages will be reviewed by a panel of Formula 1® experts, after which the winners will be announced in June.
