One winner from the EU and the U.S., along with a guest each, will be chosen to attend the 2015 FORMULA 1 UNITED STATES GRAND PRIX, October 23 – 25, and have the opportunity to meet Lewis Hamilton in person!

I’m equally excited to meet with my amazing fans when I’m there, so make sure to enter the competition and be as creative as possible and it could be you joining me in Austin! I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!”
