Legendary boxing announcer Michael Buffer will introduce each driver before the start of the U.S. Grand Prix in Austin on October 22.
Ordinarily the pit-lane opens 30 minutes before lights out, allowing drivers to make their way to the grid, before they line up at the start-finish line to observe the host nation's national anthem.
To accommodate Buffer, the usual race procedure will begin 15 minutes earlier than usual.
"I've been involved in some of the biggest sporting events around the world and have introduced most of the greatest boxers of the modern era, and now is my time to introduce the world's finest racing drivers," Buffer said.
The U.S. Grand Prix starts at 14.00 local time on October 22.
