Formula One drivers will celebrate the Spanish Grand Prix volunteers on Friday, to thanks them for their efforts in ensuring the safe and fair running of the event. The activity is part of the enormous contribution made not  the first FIA Volunteers Day, planned in recognition of the enormous contribution made not just to Formula One but to motor sport at every level of competition around the world. 

Throughout the day, the entire motor sport community – from volunteers and officials to fans, drivers and members of the media – are encouraged to join in and show their appreciation on social media. Using the hashtag #FIAVolunteersDay on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, people can share photos and stories of themselves in action on the day connecting motor sport volunteers at all levels from all around the world – from club events to world championships.

“This is an opportunity to embrace the day as an occasion to thank all volunteers who support our events at all levels,” said FIA President, Jean Todt. “It will also promote the positive benefits that they gain from their involvement in motor sport, and help attract new people to get involved.

“It is important for the FIA to give the appropriate recognition and publicity to acknowledge that each volunteer’s commitment is an essential part in ensuring the safety and success of every motor sport event.”

The Spanish Grand Prix and Formula 2 race, World Touring Car Championship race in Hungary, World Rallycross event in Belgium, Formula E Monaco ePrix and European Truck Racing Championship race in Austria will lead the celebrations, with activities taking place to celebrate the marshals, race officials and medical staff that devote their time voluntarily.
