Hardwell continues to push the boundaries of achievement in the dance music world, as the two-time world’s #1 DJ performed the first ever DJ set to on a Formula One podium as part of Heineken’s More Than A Race campaign, to tens of thousands at this Sunday’s Formula 1 Gran Premio de Mexico, alongside millions of viewers, both motorsport and music fans, who tuned in to watch across the world.
The stakes were high for Hardwell, Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. On the one hand we had one of the world’s best DJ performing for the first time at a Formula One event, on the other we had a battle for the Formula One world championship drive title. At the start Hamilton only needed a 5th place finish to take home the cup, but a crash involving both drivers made Hamilton finish 9th and Vettel 4th which was enough to give Hamilton his 4th title (and make him the most successful British driver).
Hardwell played for an hour for tens of thousands of fans, with Force India driver and Mexican native Sergio Pérez which you can review his performance below.
