F1 is taking the spectacle of racing to Los Angeles for the first time next month, with a live car run and immersive Hollywood Festival.

Following previous US festivals, in Chicago and Miami, Valtteri Bottas, Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen will all head to Los Angeles ahead of the United States Grand Prix, to demonstrate the Grand Prix experience, as the sport seeks to expand in the US.

Fans will witness the three Grand Prix winners and their teams - Mercedes, Red Bull and Renault - on the Hollywood Blvd, as the sport brings the Formula 1 atmosphere to the heart of the City of Angels.

The festival, which is free to the public, will get underway on Tuesday, October 29 with the unveiling of a "Hollywood Ride of Fame" car exhibition along the star-studded Hollywood Blvd.

The attraction will feature multiple F1 and iconic cars throughout the ages, giving fans the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of motorsport.

"Following the huge success of our US festival offering, including our Miami take over and Chicago fan event earlier this year, we are excited to be returning to the States for our third instalment of F1 Festivals in America," said Sean Bratches, Managing Director of Commercial Operations, Formula 1. "LA is an iconic city, known for all things showbiz and we are extremely excited to be adding F1 to the Hollywood walk of fame, as we take over the Blvd for the first time.

"It's very important that fans get to experience F1 in city centres and that we showcase what Formula 1 has to offer to the US market."
