“The roadshow of the Formula 1 Grand Prix de France brought together crowds around the Promenade des Anglais. I congratulate the Formula 1 Grand Prix de France team for this unique event, offering an incredible show to the people of Nice with the exceptional presence of Renault F1 Team Driver Daniel Ricciardo. This feat is a real guarantee of success ahead of the Formula 1 Grand Prix de France on June 23rd.”

“We are proud and happy to have participated in this major event on the iconic Promenade des Anglais in Nice and to have contributed to offering a unique show to the tens of thousands of people who came to attend this stage of the roadshow tour. In our commitment to Formula 1, we are dedicated to being as close as possible to our fans and the roadshow confirms the public’s interest in our sport.”

Daniel Ricciardo, Renault F1 Team Driver:

“It was a wonderful day: we were very lucky with the weather and the fans turned out in huge numbers to attend the demonstration with the E20 Formula 1 car and R.S.01. We made a lot of noise on the Promenade des Anglais! It was a pleasure for me to put on a show and to participate in my first roadshow with Renault F1 Team. It was great to see the crowds of people and feel the support of the fans ready to host the Formula 1 Grand Prix de France!”
