100 Most Influential People in F1, 2017

F1 Flag

Paddock magazine presents the seventh 100 Most Influential People in Formula 1 list. It’s our very own annual register of the most powerful people in the industry.

This year the subject of influence in Formula 1 is as sensitive as ever. Everyone has a take, everyone has an angle, and let’s be honest here, everyone enjoys rating people once in a while.

We’ve gathered a team of experts of the racing business for this occasion: after a lot of research, the team published an online survey for motorsport professionals and then tweaked the final results.

Click on the names or photos for short bios, and most importantly, enjoy!

The ones to watch:

 Alejandro Agag – could it be that the captain of Formula E will have a growing influence on how things will turn out for Formula 1 in the coming years?

 Karun Chandhok – expert analyst, Official Williams Heritage Driver, former Formula 1, Formula E and GP2 racer, sought-after opinion former.

 Paul Hembery – now out of the list and occupying a new position at Pirelli, Paul could be back anytime as he’s the one who guided the tyre manufacturer’s return to Formula 1.
