Max and Alex take a pair of RB7’s down Hollywood Boulevard
We’ve always been partial to bringing some F1 power to the streets and highways of the USA and over the years we’ve blasted our championship-winning machinery through New York’s Lincoln Tunnel, up the dusty tracks of east Texas, across San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge and down the Las Vegas Strip.
We’ve even done some donuts at the top of the 700-foot high One Thousand Museum condo in Miami.
But despite racing around some of the United States’ most iconic locations, we’ve never taken our cars to the one place an F1 superstar would feel right at home – Hollywood.
That all changed when Max, Alex and Christian took a detour en route from Mexico to Austin and tore up Tinseltown at the F1 LA Live fan festival.
“It was very special,” said Max afterwards. “To do a show run in LA was already pretty cool, but to do it on Hollywood Boulevard was incredible. It was great, too, that so many people came out to see it.
“I always love coming to the US,” he added. “I even came here for my summer holiday, so it’s always good to be back, and of course coming back in an F1 car makes it even better.”
Alex was equally excited about the Team’s first Hollywood starring role and his show run debut.
“It was very cool. The fans were incredibly loud and passionate and the event went really well,” he said. “I really didn’t expect so many people. The RB7? It was loud! I’m not used to driving such a loud car and I wish I’d had the chance to drive one of these when they were out on track. It was great fun. It was my first time doing a donut, which was interesting. I was a bit nervous before my first run, but it all went really smoothly.”
