The Goodwood Festival of Speed will once again feature a host of F1 stars, from current drivers' to ex-world champions, as it enters its 20th anniversary year.

The event, which runs from 12-14 July, has also managed to attract seven of the current F1 teams, including reigning world champions Red Bull, Ferrari, McLaren, Lotus and Mercedes.

The driving talent on show will see the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button, Nico Rosberg and Romain Grosjean all take to Goodwood Hill in machinery of varying vintage, while legends of F1 paddocks past are also due to assemble at the famous festival, with Alain Prost, Nelson Piquet, Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart, John Surtees, Jochen Mass, Emerson Fittipaldi and Rene Arnoux all joining the roll-call of motorsport stars.

In total, 17 grand prix winners will be in action across the weekend, bringing a total of 232 GP victories between them. While not amongst that pantheon, former F1 driver Nick Heidfeld will also be in attendance, and will once again take the McLaren MP4/13 up the hill in an attempt to break the 41.6secs record he set in 1999.

From the world of rallying, IRC champion Andreas Mikkelsen will be present in the 2013 VW Polo WRC, as will Spanish double world champion Carlos Sainz, whilst Mikko Hirvonen's Citroen DS3 WRC will join VW's current pacesetter in full flight on the Goodwood Forest Rally Stage.
