A number of F1 stars are confirmed for the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July
A number of F1 stars past and present are set to appear at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July after organisers revealed the latest list of drivers confirmed for the event.

McLaren duo Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton are both scheduled to make appearances at the annual event, with Button due to drive an MP4-25 up the famous Goodwood Hill on Saturday 3 July while Hamilton will be in action in the MP4-24 the following day.

Mercedes pair Nick Heidfeld and Nico Rosberg will drive the W01 up the hill, Marc Gene will be in action in Ferrari's F10 while Nico Hulkenberg is set to drive Williams' FW31.

British F3 title winner Daniel Ricciardo will represent Red Bull Racing on Friday 2 July, while current F1 points leader Mark Webber will take over from his countryman the following day.

F1 stars from years gone set to appear include John Surtees at the wheel of his 1964 title-winning Ferrari 158, Jackie Stewart at the wheel of the Lotus 38 that carried Jim Clark to the 1965 Indianapolis 500 and Sir Stirling Moss, who may appear on the hill dependent on his recovery from the injuries he sustained in a fall down a lift shaft at his London home earlier in the year.

Away from F1, rally fans will get to see the likes of Kris Meeke and Ken Block in action while Allan McNish will take the Audi R15 Plus up the Hill.

James Toseland, Max Biaggi, Leon Camier and Giacomo Agostini are amongst the famous names from the world of two wheels currently confirmed.
