We hand the reigns over to ART Grand Prix's Frederik Vesti who crafts a brand-new addition to the FIA Formula 3 calendar. Choosing everything from the country, to the celebrity that he would invite, the 2020 PREMA Racing driver creates a new race weekend.
WHERE WOULD THE RACE BE HELD?
I would definitely hold it in Denmark. They have never really had a Formula 1 race, certainly not in my lifetime, and it is my home country, they’re my people.
I would build a big track in my hometown, near to my house. It’s actually my dream in the future to have my own racetrack next to my house.
HOW WOULD THE TRACK BE LAID OUT?
“Purpose built for sure. I would include some street circuit style elements in there, some sections which are tight and twisty. I like having walls on a track - I think that would work well in the middle sector.
“I would start with a long straight, around 900m with a good DRS zone, so that it is possible to overtake. It would then go into a tight hairpin to start with, which would be exciting and difficult as the first turn.
“A few left, right chicanes where you need to take some kerb. Going into sector 2, I think it would be awesome to have something a little bit like Macau, where there are walls in there and you need 100% focus.
“It would be a tight circuit, built more for surviving and manoeuvring than overtaking. It would really challenge a driver and be very unforgiving! That’s what I like, I think that it would be awesome.”
DAY OR NIGHT?
“An evening race, going into night. Starting at around 9pm and finishing at 10pm, so that the lighting changes during the race.”
DRY OR WET?
“I would have a dry race if I could choose. That way you feel all the g-forces better and you can really push to the limit.”
WHICH CELEBRITY WOULD YOU INVITE TO THE RACE?
“Lionel Messi would be really cool. He is one of - if not the best – football players and it would be cool to have him at a race to show him our world, what we do and why we are good. Maybe he would even have some tricks that we could do, you never know! Hopefully he would invite me back to Barcelona...”
