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.
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.
Global superstar Mabel got things underway with her unique playlist at the British Grand Prix, with Two Door Cinema Club bringing their own tastes to the table ahead of the German Grand Prix last weekend.
As the season hits it’s the final stop at the Hungarian Grand Prix before the summer break, it’s the turn of Hot Chip to curate their own playlist . The synth-pop group, who released their latest album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy earlier this year, have taken the motorsport theme to heart, which tracks added to their playlist including Bruce Springsteen‘s ‘Racing In The Street‘ and ‘Low Rider’ by 70s funk group War.
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 the Official F1 Tracks playlist on Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music.
