A special parade celebrating legends of the 24 Hours of Le Mans will take place this Sunday ahead of the Formula 1 race in Austria, with Mark Webber and Tom Kristensen among the drivers taking part.

F1 has shown a more open stance towards Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship in recent months, as exemplified by CEO and chairman Chase Carey's invitation to be the official starter for the 24 Hours of Le Mans last month.

Ahead of the race on Sunday, 10 Le Mans cars spanning six decades will take part in a special show run, with recent 24-hour victor Brendon Hartley set to drive the Porsche 919 Hybrid that he took to its 19th overall win at the Circuit de la Sarthe.
