“It’s the most enormous ‘pinch-me’ moment to perform the National Anthem ahead of this year’s race", she said. “I feel deeply privileged". 

“The atmosphere and excitement at Silverstone for the British Grand Prix last year was utterly electric and I can’t wait to be a part of it again", the stage and screen actress continued. “I am immensely proud of my British roots and I will remember this honour all my life". 

Waddingham also revealed that she will be cheering on each British driver at this race including: "mighty Lewis (Hamilton), George (Russell) and Lando (Norris). C’mon Chaps! Let’s do this!”. 

Along with Ted Lasso, Hannah Waddingham is also known for starring in Game of Thrones, and Sex Education.
