Tech Tim On Location: F1 Comes to Hollywood Boulevard. October 30 2019
Out with the red carpet and in with the tire tracks! Before heading to Austin, F1 made a quick stop in Tinseltown to treat fans to donuts and noise. Ricciardo, Albon, Bottas, and Verstappen made appearances driving cars from Renault, Mercedes, and Red Bull down a two-block straight.
There was plenty of recent history on display, including a stepped-nose V8 circa 2012 and a T-wing. The crowd was a mix of merchandise-sporting F1 enthusiasts and curious locals and tourists, many of whom were likely experiencing the spectacle of Formula 1 up close for the first time. Good times were had by all!
