ASAP Ferg to Host New Formula 1 Series ‘The Pit' on Complex

The Pit With ASAP Ferg features the Harlem rapper rapper traveling to Budapest to learn the ins and outs of Formula 1 racing from the pros.

On Sunday November 3, Formula 1® will return to the Circuit of the Americas (COTA) in Austin, TX for this year’s US Grand Prix. Defending F1® champion and current points leader Lewis Hamilton will look to fend off the surging Ferrari team consisting of former four-time World Champion Sebastian Vettel, and young phenom Charles Leclerc.

In the lead up to the race, Complex, in partnership with F1®, will be releasing “The Pit,” an all new show hosted by ASAP Ferg. The five-part series, which was shot in Budapest during this summer’s Hungary Grand Prix, will provide a deep dive into the world of Formula 1®, as Ferg takes viewers on a literal ride through the mechanics of the sport. The season will feature some of F1®’s premier talent, including Carlos Sainz, Lando Norris, Daniel Ricciardo, and more. 

“I never realized the amount of work and precision that went into Formula1®," says Ferg. "I’m a fan of hard work and experiencing what the drivers and teams have to do to win a race changed my perspective on maximum effort. I’m a lifelong fan now."

“The Pit” kicks off October 4, with new episodes launching every Friday through November 1.  Check out the series trailer above for a taste of what’s to come when the first episode drops tomorrow on Complex.
