Motorsport UK announces Future Stars judging panel

Wednesday 17 June 2020

Motorsport UK is pleased to announce the judging panel for its 2020 FIA Formula 1® Future Stars Competition.

Three renowned members of F1 media will be joined by a special guest judge to choose eight virtual FIA F1 Future Stars to take place in the national anthem ceremony at this year’s British Grand Prix (2 August).

Sky Sports F1 presenter and former driver, Karun Chandock; BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Jennie Gow; and F1 Correspondent for The Sun, Ben Hunt, will sit down next week to choose eight virtual Future Stars, aged between seven and ten years-old, to appear on worldwide TV coverage of the British Grand Prix during the national anthem ceremony.

Motorsport UK will be announcing one more special guest judge tomorrow (Thursday 18 June) ahead of entries closing.

‘F1 Future Stars’ was launched in 2018 by Formula 1 and the FIA, offering young motorsport enthusiasts the chance to accompany the F1 drivers on the start grid for the national anthem before each race. Due to the current global health context, Motorsport UK and Formula 1® are offering the experience virtually in 2020, with the opportunity exclusively available to both the children of Motorsport UK members who work for the NHS and Motorsport UK Kart licence holders, many of whom aspire to progress towards the pinnacle of the sport themselves.

Eligible children are asked to record a 30-second video introducing themselves and explaining who their F1 hero is and what it would mean to represent UK motorsport and the NHS on TV coverage of the British Grand Prix. For more information visit Entries close on Thursday 18 June.
