The 2019 FIA Formula 1 World Championship will soon start and it looks set to be another incredible year of exhilarating F1 action. The championship will be competed over a whopping 21 Grand Prixs which is a joint record for the number of races in a season. It will kick off on the 17th of March with the Australian Grand Prix and finishes on December 1st with the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
A Busy Year Ahead
With so many Grand Prix races to squeeze into less than a year, it means that it is a very busy schedule this season and often there are just days between events. It is for this very reason why VistaJet, the worlds only global business aviation company, have teamed up with Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow team as their supplier of private jet for the season.
VistaJet Team with Ferrari
VistaJet founder and chairman, Thomas Flohr, is a huge fan of F1 and even has racing experience with the iconic brand himself as an official driver in the FIA World Endurance Championship. Thomas achieved 2nd place at the 24h Le Mans 2018 in his Ferrari 488 GTE so he certainly knows his stuff when it comes to the demands and pressure of racing at a high level.
There will be two races in the Gulf this year to keep a close eye on and could be pivotal events in the busy calendar. The first is the Bahrain Grand Prix on the 31st of March which will be just the second race and also the first night race which will only add to the drama. It is the 5th time that there has been a floodlit race in the Sakhir desert and will certainly be a unique event with the famous Arabian hospitality making sure that there is as much excitement off the track as there is on. As mentioned, the second race it the final one of the season at Abu Dhabi on December 1st. Needless to say, this could be pivotal and the highlight of the F1 season with everything to play for. This is the perfect destination for the conclusion to the 2019 F1 Championships as it has quickly become a favourite amongst fans thanks to the anti-clockwise direction, underground pit lane and twists and turns against the impressive backdrop.
It certainly looks to be an incredible year ahead for F1 fans with the season soon getting underway. It will also be a hectic schedule which is just one reason why Ferrari has chosen VistaJet as their official supplier of private jets for the season to optimise travel and transfer times. It will be intriguing to see how the season unfolds with two huge races taking place in the Gulf which could have a big impact on the outcome.
