Formula 1's thrilling new exhibition is coming to London's ExCel Centre this summer.

The critically-acclaimed show has already wowed visitors in Madrid, Vienna and Toronto, and now it's joined forces with the Silverstone Museum to pay homage to the home of racing and Britain's contribution to motorsport.

Once Upon a Time in Formula 1

The Once Upon a Time in Formula 1 room takes fans on a journey through some of the most exciting moments in F1 history through a collection of iconic cars driven by F1 legends, unseen photographs and artefacts, film clips and interviews.

Revolution by Design imagines what this technology will look like in the future, discussing some of the technical innovations already on the horizon, and how F1 is leading the world in such areas as sustainability.

These rooms include parts and components contributed by Williams, Mercedes, McLaren and Pirelli.

Romain Grosjean's crashed HAAS car

The Survival room takes a forensic look at something that F1 fans will never forget... Romain Grosjean's burnt out Haas car that sliced in two as he careered through a fence at 200mph.

You'll be able to see the remains of the actual car itself, plus some previously unseen footage showing Romain miraculously escaping from the flames.
