Seven Formula One teams will attend the Goodwood Festival of Speed next month (June 23-26), it has been announced, with Mercedes leading the way.

Joining Mercedes on the 1.16 mile hillclimb course will be Ferrari, Force India, McLaren, Red Bull, Renault and Williams.

Of the drivers, and already confirmed to appear, are Force India's Nico Hulkenberg, who also took victory in last year's Le Mans 24 Hours with Porsche, and 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button, with more expected to be announced in the coming weeks.

Also, while no longer an active F1 driver, although he will be in action in an LMP3 Sports car race ahead of this year's Le Mans 24 Hours, Sky Sports F1 commentator Martin Brundle will be in action, taking Button's championship-winning Brawn BGP 001, not seen running since 2009, up the hill.

“There are more top F1 teams here than ever before,” said Lord March, “and I am very pleased to hear that Jenson Button's already confirmed his appearance just before the British Grand Prix with his McLaren-Honda.”
