Over the weekend of the FORMULA 1 GRAN PREMIO HEINEKEN D’ITALIA 2019, a further ten people were inducted into the Formula 1 Paddock Hall of Fame, established last year to honour worthy member of the Formula 1 family, who have been a constant presence in the paddock for at least 25 years.
The inductees are selected by means of a secret vote by a panel made up of a representative of Formula 1, one from the FIA, a team member and a media person. Those chosen are entitled to a guest pass for themselves and one other for any Grand Prix they choose to attend, once their career at the pinnacle of motor sport is over.
The class of 2019 was chosen by a panel made up of Ross Brawn (Managing Director, Motorsports, Formula 1), Joachim Bauer (FIA Formula 1 Technical Delegate), Claire Williams (Deputy Team Principal, ROKiT Williams Racing) and the journalist Joe Saward. The award ceremony took place at the Casa Brembo in the Monza circuit, the brake manufacturer having been a partner of the Formula 1 Paddock Hall of Fame since it was established.
Ross Brawn, Managing Director, Motorsports at Formula 1 said:
“Our sport is both fascinating and demanding, especially for those who attend every race. The paddock is like a second home for those who are there every day and they become part of the family. The purpose of this initiative is to pay tribute to those who have been with us for at least a quarter of a century, irrespective of their role, or how many Grands Prix they have won or championships they secured. Each one of these inductees has given so much of their life, sacrificing much of their personal lives and contributing a great deal to Formula 1 and we are honoured to recognise them in this small but symbolic way, offering them our admiration and recognition.”
