F1 fans live all over the world: The love for Formula 1 is not subject to age, gender or lifestyle and work. However, Formula 1 racing brings people together and forces f1 fans to communicate in the same language.

I couldn’t believe that my entry was chosen as the winning. I had been working for a month. It was paid off. Also, it was 1st. foreign trip in my life….. I was like living in a dream!- Aditya Agrawal


Like a dream” is the most important thing in the mind of every Formula 1 fan who has had access to the Formula One paddock. Aditya Agrawal is one of them, but not like most VIP guests of Formula 1. He is more than just a Formula 1 fan and the race is not just an opportunity to relax.

It is excitement, thrill seeing your hero’s driving at high speeds putting their lives at risk for our entertainment 


For more than 15 years he has been a motorsport fan with his favorite idol Michael Schumacher. He remembers the legendary racing baron at the Buddh International Circuit India in 2012, but f1 fan did not have the chance to meet him in person at the time. Racing has become part of his life, but he has never lost hope of getting closer to Formula 1.  Aditya Agrawal met David Coulthard, Sergio Perez, Nico Hülkenberg, Adrian Sutil, Paul Diresta, Jenson Button. He has travelled extensively in Formula 1 and cherishes those memories, but one he remembers with special affection.


In 2014 Shell company organized a contest on an International basis, the theme of the contest was “Share your love and passion for your car”. The contest ran for over a month and the price was an all-expense trip to the 2014 Shell Belgium Grand Prix; to spend a day with Kimi Raikkonen. I took out my Ferrari cars, made several slide shows sharing Ferrari car’s history

And luck heard  F1 fan

The judges at Ferrari and Shell loved my work and I was declared the winner from India. Their hospitality was amazing. I got to see F1 from the Shell VIP hospitality area, received many gifts from Ferrari Shell. After the race. They treated me with a lot of respect. After the race, they took me to Amsterdam where I spent one day with Kimi. Raikkonen. I did go-carting, pit stop practice, and so much more with him. It was amazing 

There are these people support is so important for Formula 1 teams and F1 drivers.  Without those Formula 1 fans, motorsport would never exist.  And you can argue with me all you want, but these people need free access to the Formula 1 paddock club. Although Aditya Agrawal is modest about it.

It would be good on one side, but at the same time the paddock would get overcrowded and loose exclusivity.

Seems that this is the end, but everything changed in 2016.

 Yas Island invited me to watch the Etihad Abu Dhabi GP. It was not a contest. They just saw my Facebook page and loved my passion for the sport. It was the best 5 days of my life. A friend on Facebook helped me meet the Sahara Force India Team. They invited me into the Paddock, I saw Practice from their garage! I was thrilled! It was a dream come true. Words are not enough to express how happy I was  


The love for Formula 1 is once and for all: the irresistible spark that once turned Niki Lauda’s life upside down. Whatever happens on the main stage of Formula One, its atmosphere is still magical. As soon as you visit the epicenter of a race, you always say “Like in a dream”!

I do not have one favorite team but many……All drivers are my heroes because they put their lives on stake for our entertainment. It is hard to choose one favorite driver…. I love the sound of F1 cars, the speed at which the drivers drive the cars. It is real action, unlike Hollywood action movies
