The last stage of the promotional film in Istanbul was held at the July 15 Martyrs’ Bridge and it features two Formula 1 drivers Alexander Albon from Red Bull Racing and Pierre Gasly from AlphaTauri.

The drivers made the world’s first intercontinental pit-stop on the bridge.

The promotional video is intended to reach hundreds of millions of viewers around the world and it features remarkable locations in Istanbul, including Sultanahmet, Galata Bridge, Eurasia Tunnel, Maiden’s Tower and the July 15 Martyrs’ Bridge.

The Turkish Grand Prix will be held Nov. 15 at the Intercity Istanbul Park in Tuzla, located on the city’s Asian side.
