Imagine the roar of engines, the pulse of excitement, and the elite world of Formula One racing making its way to the sun-drenched shores of Thailand. This is not a mere daydream but a potential future scenario that has the country buzzing with anticipation. At the heart of this thrilling prospect is Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin, a man on a mission, blending the worlds of high-speed motorsport and Thai tourism into one adrenaline-fueled vision.

On a radiant Sunday in Imola, Italy, against the backdrop of the legendary Enzo e Dino Ferrari Formula One circuit, a meeting of minds took place that could steer Thailand into a new era of international sports hosting. Prime Minister Srettha, alongside Red Bull F1’s master tactician, Christian Horner, signaled Thailand’s ambitious gears shifting towards a future intertwined with Formula One’s global spectacle.

The prime minister’s journey to Italy wasn’t just a leisurely pilgrimage to the mecca of motorsport. In the cosmopolitan vibes of Milan, he engaged with Formula One Group’s high-flyers, setting the stage for what could be a game-changing venture. Srettha’s vision? To catapult Thailand into the global sporting arena by constructing a brand-new Formula One racing circuit near U-Tapao airport, Rayong province. Think about it – the land of smiles becoming the new pit stop for the world’s premier auto-racing championship within the next three to four years.

Srettha’s proposition isn’t just about bringing the speed and glamour of F1 to Thailand’s doorstep. It’s a turbocharged strategy to supercharge the country’s tourism and showcase Thailand on a global podium previously unimagined. In the pits with Srettha, strategizing the roadmap to this grand vision were Chatchai Phromlert of PTT Plc and Kavin Kanjanapas of BTS Group Holdings Plc. With PTT potentially fueling the construction and BTS Group holding the keys to the U-Tapao airport’s vast expanse, the dream team is on the grid, ready for the lights to go out.

The response from Formula One Group? Green lights and gears set to go. The excitement in Srettha’s voice was palpable as he teased the potential of not just F1 but also F2 races and budding young racers tearing up the Thai track. While the checkered flag on discussions is yet to be waved, the government’s engines are revved up for a construction start line in 2027 or 2028 at the latest.

Amongst the high-octane thrills of his Italian venture, Srettha also soaked in the heritage and the heart-pounding turns of the Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit. A glimpse into what could soon be a part of Thailand’s very fabric. And while the calculators are still buzzing over the potential revenue injection F1 could pump into Thailand’s veins, Srettha teased a vision of VIP experiences and a cascade of benefits from sponsorships to gastronomical delights and a turbo boost to tourism.

Last month’s rendezvous with Formula One Group’s CEO Stefano Domenicali in Thailand wasn’t just pleasantries exchanged over cups of Thai tea. It was a groundwork laying dialogue, with Domenicali expressing eagerness to flag off a Formula One spectacle in the heart of Asia. A collaboration that could see Thailand racing into the global spotlight, fueled by the passion of its people and the government’s drive to cross the finish line into a new era of sporting excellence and global recognition.

So, as Thailand revs its engines at the starting line of this exhilarating journey, the world watches with bated breath. Will the land of smiles become the new home of speed, strategy, and the spectacular? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure – Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin is determined to steer his country into the fast lane, and the world of Formula One might just be ready to welcome Thailand with open arms.
