The sense of anticipation ahead of this weekend‘s race is almost unprecedented in recent years. Whatever the rights and wrongs of the incident at Copse on lap 1 of the British Grand Prix at Silverstone and whoever the hero and villain, F1 has two drivers in different teams racing hard for the championship for the first time in many years.
Meantime the F1 circus is pitching up at a circuit where Lewis has won on 8 previous occasions but Max’s Red Bull chassis is rumoured to be better suited. Let’s race!
This week we are showcasing items from our World Champions inventory, including a Fernando Alonso racesuit and boots used at the Paris launch of the 2008 Renault F1 car and a pair of his 2009 ING Renault Puma race gloves.
From Red Bull we have a signed pair of Sebastian Vettel official Alpinestars replica gloves from his 2013 championship year as well as a race used mirror from Seb’s 2011 championship winning RB7 mounted on a carbon base.
Continuing with gloves we offer a superb pair of Puma replica gloves as used by Lewis Hamilton in 2014, display framed and ready to hang.
Helmets continue to be in high demand and we have a hand signed 1994 Mario Andretti ‘arrivederci’ Bell replica helmet as well as a Michael Schumacher 2010 AMG Mercedes replica.
