A guessing game would be a good warmer. One student holds a picture of a famous person the others put questions in order to guess who he/she is (or was).

Hi Carinita,
Maybe you can do a speaking activity by using some activity cards.
Check these material, maybe you can find one that matches with
your students level:
Good luck!

Hi Carina, Have you thought of a trivia, guessing game related to the topic? ie. Interesting / unusual statistics related to the drivers, the cars and the teams. Or depending on there language level, you could use a multiple choice guessing game.
