The free entrance event, titled “Perfect Experience with F1”, was held by Dutch brewing company Heineken, with the participation of former F1 driver and Heineken F1 Ambassador David Coulthard, world No.1 DJ Martin Garrix and the Red Bull Racing F1 Team.

It offered spectators a chance to witness the perfect teamwork, lightning speed, precision and strategy of the Red Bull Racing F1 Team during a pit stop.

The F1 show was followed by explosive music performances by Martin Garrix, who topped the world DJ rankings in 2016 and 2017, and leading Vietnamese artists such as Tuan Hung, My Tam, Son Tung MTP, and Dong Nhi.

Perfect Experience with F1 is part of an ongoing campaign named “When You Drive, Never Drink” that was launched by Heineken last September in 10 countries, including Vietnam, with an aim to raise drivers’ awareness of traffic safety and bring about behavioral changes with regard to drunk driving.
