Carlos Sainz has described the breathtaking moment he first saw Romain Grosjean’s burnt-out chassis on display at The Formula 1® Exhibition Madrid, as the ground-breaking show announces its extension in the Spanish capital.
The Ferrari driver was quick to visit when the world-first exhibition was officially opened by Formula 1® President & CEO Stefano Domenicali in his home city on 23 March 2023. Initially set to run until 4 June, the show has today announced that due to phenomenal demand it will extend its stay in Madrid until 16 July 2023.
The Formula 1® Exhibition has quickly become Spain’s biggest temporary show this year in terms of ticket sales, with an unprecedented number of fans visiting across the opening months and weekend tickets selling out far in advance. Sainz believes it is unlike anything he has ever seen before.
“It’s an absolute must for F1 fans” he explained after experiencing the show at IFEMA Madrid.
Several years in the making, the exhibition combines spectacular audio-visual design, rare film and imagery, engineering and educational displays, sculptural pieces and iconic Grand Prix™ cars to deliver an unforgettable experience for everyone – from avid followers to younger fans and families.
