Mumbai, April 6, 2022: As the Formula 1 caravan continues to move to different countries, Star Sports, the official broadcaster of Formula 1 in India, shines light on a key narrative for the season – The Hunter Will Be Hunted- with the launch of a new promo-film ahead of the Australian GP. The promo film emphasizes how the hunt for supremacy is back on track as the challengers will look to hunt down and stop Max Verstappen and take his spot at the top of the F1 pyramid.
Hamilton’s dominance has been so profound over the last decade that he now has the most race wins in Formula 1 throughout its history. Max Verstappen has been hunting down Hamilton for the title since the last few years and F1 fans finally witnessed him claiming the championship in one of the most dramatic finishes to an F1 season in Abu Dhabi last year.
The promo film also highlights the fact that the new features of the 2022 cars will be a game changer for all teams as it allows closer racing – with the potential for more overtakes and nail-biting finishes. The start of the new season has brought with it new rules, new drivers in various teams and renewed hope among the drivers as they look to hunt down the reigning champion, Verstappen, and take his spot at World dominance in this new era of F1.
