Formula 1 has shared a playlist curated by Racing Point star Lance Stroll across Spotify, Apple and Deezer. The playlist is the first ever to be curated by a driver as part of Formula 1’s F1 Tracks music policy, with Lance’s selection of 33 songs running alongside the main playlist. Lance’s playlist marks a big moment for the sport, who launched their new music policy in July 2019.
A Formula 1 driver since the beginning of the 2017 season and still only 21 years of age, Lance has impressed with his versatility and consistency during his three seasons in the sport. He secured his maiden podium at the 2017 Azerbaijan Grand Prix and finished an impressive 4th during last season’s rain-soaked German Grand Prix. His team Racing Point enjoyed their first full season in Formula One in 2019, finishing in 7th place in the constructors championship with Lance and his experienced teammate Sergio Perez behind the wheel of the RP19.
Lance has opted for a healthy combination of songs both old and new to create a unique style for his playlist, including huge tunes from world-conquering acts such as Gorillaz, Drake, The Rolling Stones, Post Malone and U2. Clocking in at just over two hours, the playlist is a spirit-rousing listen and perfect for sound tracking the sport’s ‘Virtual GPs’ currently being held in place of regular races.
F1 Tracks aptly began at the home of motorsport with a launch around the 2019 British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Mabel was the first in a line of illustrious artists to curate bespoke playlists for the sport, as she sound tracked the weekend with a hand-picked selection of massive songs. Since then, F1 Tracks has gone from strength to strength, featuring takeovers from stars including Gwen Stefani, Mumford & Sons and Sigma. Lance Stroll is the latest addition to those high-profile names as he becomes the first driver to curate a playlist.
The core F1 Tracks playlist is updated weekly, and features an array of global, cutting-edge artists that are just as innovative and exciting as the sport the playlist represents. The playlist has now amassed over 12,000 followers on Spotify, and continues to be enjoyed by Formula 1 fans in all corners of the globe. Last week, the playlist saw a takeover by American rock heroes Weezer, who have their brand new song ‘Hero’ featured in Stroll’s playlist alongside classic ‘Island in the Sun’.
