F1-USGP-Juan-Pablo-Montoya-1.jpgExclusive to F1® Experiences guests only, we are excited to invite you to our Lunch with a Legend with Juan Pablo Montoya, current IndyCar driver and formerly of McLaren and Williams in Formula One. Offering our guests gourmet lunch with beer, wine and soft drinks, immerse yourself into a world of racing by partaking in a live interview with the Colombian legend of the sport.

Hear from Montoya about his journey through the CART series, which saw him claim the title in 1999 in his rookie year, to a transition into Formula One with Williams in 2001 and later with McLaren that saw him claim six race victories, all the way to his current role with Team Penske in the IndyCar Series.

A résumé matched by few when it comes to racing experience and on-track success, Montoya is the only driver to win a CART Series title, the Indianapolis 500 and the 24 Hours of Daytona, all three of which came at his first attempt. A winner of the prestigious Monaco Grand Prix in 2003, Montoya learnt the art of racing from his father, Pablo. Fulfilling a life-long dream by signing with the famed Williams BMW team in 2001, he showed his worth by claiming a rookie victory in Monza.

Driving with the Williams BMW through the end of the 2004 season before seeking pastures new at McLaren for a further two seasons, Montoya claimed seven victories and 30 podium finishes in 94 starts. It was announced late in the 2006 season that Montoya would compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series beginning in 2007.

Alain Prost In Our Legends Club Hospitality

alain.jpgAptly nicknamed “The Professor”, Alain Prost is one of the greatest drivers ever to grace the sport of Formula One®. A winner of four World Championships (1985, 1986, 1989, 1993), Prost made winning races look easy, 51 times to be exact. A career that was embroiled (and occasions acrimoniously) in a long-standing battle with Ayrton Senna, only Fangio and Schumacher have won more world titles.

Prost’s first win came in a French car, for Renault, at the French Grand Prix, with a French driver atop the podium. Claiming nine victories in his first three seasons with Renault, Prost moved to McLaren in 1984, in a moved which proved fruitful.

In his six seasons with McLaren, Alain Prost won 30 races and three driving titles and was runner-up twice. 1988 saw Prost contribute seven wins to his McLaren-Honda team's one-sided season total of 15 victories from 16 races. However, his brilliant new team mate Ayrton Senna won eight races and the driving title. From here, the sensational rivalry that conspired to push two of the sport's greatest drivers to unprecedented heights of success and controversy began.

Alain Prost, 1990, Ferrari.jpgProst would go on to claim a further title in 1989 in controversial circumstances at Suzuka, before joining Ferrari ahead of the ’90 season. Following a sabbatical in 1992, Prost re-joined the F1® grid with Williams-Renault, where he claimed his fourth and final driving title in 1993.

Presently, Prost works in an advisory role for the Renault team. Meet the French racing giant with access to our Legends Club Hospitality.
