Anyone familiar with Rosland Capital will know that we have great admiration for our friends at Formula 1. In previous years, we’ve done a number of exclusive coin collaborations with them to commemorate some of their most important events and famous figures, like the 2018 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the 1000th race in F1 history, and motorsport champion Sir Jackie Stewart’s lifetime of achievements and philanthropic work with Race Against Dementia.
2019 has had a number of significant moments for Formula 1, especially in recent weeks. At the end of October, I had the pleasure of attending their “Hollywood and Highland” event here in Los Angeles, which featured iconic car exhibitions and appearances by champion racers like Valtteri Bottas and Max Verstappen. Based on the turnout, it’s clear that enthusiasm for Formula 1 and the world of motorsport is alive and well, and that F1 fans are just as excited as we are at Rosland to see what’s going to come next.
I also thoroughly enjoyed following the action at the 2019 Grand Prix in Austin at the beginning of this month. It was a little surreal to see Bottas take victory only days after seeing him in person in Hollywood!
As someone with both personal and professional interest in seeing Formula 1 continue to impress audiences and promote greatness in motorsport, it’s absolutely thrilling to look ahead and see how their 2020 schedule is shaping up.
One of the events I’m most excited about is the Vietnam Grand Prix in April, which will be the first race in F1’s history to take place in Hanoi. It’s great to see that passion for motorsport has continued to spread around the world and that Formula 1 has been able to expand their reach so that new audiences may come to understand the joy and wonder of racing.

Looking forward to seeing what else lies down the road for Formula 1!
