Hardwell delivers worlds first performance at the Mexico F1 Grand Prix
Robbert van de Corput, who performs under the stage name Hardwell just acquired himself some more electronic music history becoming the very first DJ in the world to play at the Formula 1 Grand Prix during the last Sundays Premio de Mexico for Heineken’s More Than A Race Campaign. The stage was more than set with the world’s best drivers atop the F1 podium who made way for the two-time world number one DJ following the awards ceremony. The DJ continues to push the boundaries of electronic music as he played to tens of thousands fans in attendance plus the millions of fans watching around the world both music and motorsport. Reflecting on the monumental occasion Hardwell said:
“Being asked to be a part of a world first for F1 was a very special feeling. It was an honour to be invited by Heineken and Formula 1 organisation to play an F1 podium for the first time in Grand Prix history. It was a thrill to be there on race day and I loved every minute playing for to the F1 fans in Mexico City on the Grand Prix on Sunday!”
Another DJ first sets Hardwell apart from most electronic artists and continues is dominant status as a DJ juggernaut. A guest speaker at the UN Headquarters plus the cultural impact of his ‘Worlds Biggest Guestlist‘ event in Mumbai are just some record feats Hardwell has attained. The Dutchman will be looking to cap off what has already been a mega year in style no doubt.
In case you missed they exhilarating Formula 1 action last Sunday, Lewis Hamilton became the world champion for the fourth time in his career making him the most decorated British driver in Formula 1 history. On the day it was Max Verstappen who clinched victory having led the race from the first few corners. Race action saw Sebastian Vettel and Hamilton collided on turn three causing front wing damage to the German and a punctured tyre for the brit who dropped right to the back of the pack. But determination saw both drivers head back up the ranks with Vettel narrowly missing out on points to hand Hamilton the world champion. Mercedes driver Bottas took second and Ferrari driver Raikkonen taking third.
