Start of 2016 Formula One Championship just one month away


F1 Malaysian GP

With just over one month away from the start of the 2016 Formula One season, the news and gossip about drivers, constructors and races is flowing heartily.

This coming season, which begins on 20 March with the Australian Grand Prix, will be the 67th season of the F1 Championship, and with 21 Grands Prix, including the return of the German Grand Prix and the revival of the European Grand Prix in Azerbaijan, it will be the longest season in the sport’s history.

The 2016 season will also will see the grid expand to 22 cars with the addition of the Haas F1 Team entry, while Renault returs to the sport as a constructor after a four-year absence following their takeover of Lotus prior to the start of the season.

At Champions Speakers we are proud to boast a number of F1 legends on our books, and in the last few weeks two such individuals have made public appearances and addressed audiences.

One of these is British F1 legend Johnny Herbert, who addressed the next generation of automotive engineers at Toyota’s two-day graduation event in Liverpool.

He delivered an after dinner speech at the Thornton Hall Hotel & Spa on the evening of the first day, before presenting awards and sharing his career experiences as part of a motivational speech the following day.

Australian Mark Webber, meanwhile, was the guest of honour at the Telecommunications Heritage Group annual conference at the luxurious Yas Viceroy in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

The Australian driver, who won nine F1 races and finished on the podium 42 times, gave a motivational speech discussing his career in the most famous racing competition in the world and his title-winning 2015 season in the FIA World Endurance Championship. Johnny Herbet and Mark Webber are fantastic examples of incredible motorsports speakers.
