The world’s most prestigious motor racing competition has had a rich association with music, from iconic songs that have provided the soundtrack to some of the most memorable races in history, to artists who’ve entertained fans live at racetracks across the globe in recent years.
Now that relationship is brought full circle with the launch of the competition’s first ever playlist, F1 Tracks, providing fans of the sport with the perfect soundtrack to accompany their race day, whether that’s from the comfort of their sofa or sat on Silverstone’s Hangar Straight.
The launch of the playlist comes ahead of Race 10 in the 2019 Calendar, the British Grand Prix. Mercedes’ Lewis Hamilton has once again been the dominant force in the competition this year, and the British driver will be hoping to seal his seventh win of the season – which would be his record-breaking sixth at Silverstone – on home soil as he looks to become Formula 1 World Champion for a sixth time.
F1 Tracks will be updated on a weekly basis, uniting both global superstars with the sounds of F1. Every Friday, international playlist picks will be filtered according to four key categories: Pace, Mechanical, Spirit & Fan. This unique set of principles will produce a bespoke and dynamic playlist for fans, which embodies F1 and is distinctive to other weekly streamed playlists.
Alongside the core playlist, a number of selected artists will also be curating bespoke playlists for the sport.
Getting the green light underway first is global superstar Mabel, who has curated a unique playlist for the British Grand Prix this weekend, with further collaborations with Hot Chip and Two Door Cinema Club set to come later in the season.
F1 Tracks is the first step into building a wider music offering for fans of the sport, which unites cultural passions with racing. Each Friday more tracks will be added the list engaging not just fans but other artists to upload new releases and reach a more diverse fan base.
Sport Playlists bring you the best sport music playlists, all in one place, easy to follow on sharable platforms. Listen now, and don’t forget to follow this playlist on Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music.
