The 2018 F1 Milan Festival is just a few days away, and with it are the expectations of the world’s top F1 racers soaring high along with racing fans from around the world. It will take place in Milan on Aug. 29 before the F1 Gran Premio Heineken D’Italia 2018 kicks off.
In line with this, the City of Milan and the ACI will make sure that everything goes smoothly, along with the organization, safety, and successful run of the racing event.
This, however, isn’t a regular F1 race as fans from around the world can experience the adrenaline and feel the engines’ roar as they line the streets. The smell of rubber and the exciting vibe will surely make this city circuit race one of the best F1 events this year.
The racing festival is a free-for-all event, which means that people can enjoy the fun without spending a single dime. It will be held inside the Darsena area where the ancient Navigli water canals can also be found.
In addition, there will be a meet and greet session for the crowd. This will be attended by the top Ferrari racers Kimi Raikkonen and Sebastian Vettel. The two are currently atop the betting leaderboards thanks to their 251 and 2.75 odds respectively.
As of now, Vettel is at the second spot of the betting game, next to Lewis Hamilton’s strong 1.5 odds. Valtteri Bottas succeeds him with a competitive 201 odds, followed by Raikkonen’s 251. However, Daniel Ricciardo is tied up with his 251 odds and is expected to overtake him if he doesn’t do well in succeeding races to come.
If you’d want to join the fun, though, then you can bet on the F1 races with the top UK bookmakers. Though it’s still a bit early to expect who’s going to win the 2018 F1 Drivers Championship, it can be expected that the victory will come from any of the aforementioned players.
Nonetheless, the F1 festival is going to be an event which will showcase jaw-dropping cars, including the classic ones. There will also be a safety car that will assure that the circuit is free from any hazards that might put the modern F1 cars at risk
The F1 Milan Festival will take place at the same time as the 2018 F1 Heineken Gran Premio D’Italia which will be held at the Autodromo di Monza. This will boost the sport’s popularity not only in Italy but throughout the whole world as well.
The event will also make F1 closer to the new generation, to inspire future racers. The F1 festival marks the comeback of Formula 1 racing to Milan.
The festival will also spark a new wave of fun and excitement while bringing the F1 Grand Prix back to the Italian city. Balich Worldwide Shows is the executive and creative producer of the F1 Milan Festival.
They are also the ones who covered the Olympic Ceremonies and other large-scale live sporting events. Meanwhile, the media partners of the grand event are La Gazzetta dello Sport and Sky Sports Italy.
This is the first edition of the Formula 1 Milan Festival, with the event expected to boost the city’s tourism and economy. Milan is also the fourth global city to host a festival like this, with London being the first last July 2017, followed by Shanghai this April, and in Marseille last June. The next F1 fan festival will be in Miami and will take place this October.
