The Sainz go marching in

As we recover from an eventful and thrilling British Grand Prix at Silverstone, the teams immediately head for Austria. Unbelievably, Alex Albon and Guanyu Zhou escaped injury after their accidents and will compete, whilst Carlos Sainz not only drove his Ferrari to his maiden win from his maiden pole, but seemed to be calling the strategy shots too.

The Red Bull ring is a great circuit that overlooks the Zeltweg airbase where a temporary track first ran the Grand Prix before the Osterreichring was constructed.  In 1967, the Austrian GP was a sports car race and fastest lap honours went to Denny Hulme. We are privileged to offer the trophy awarded to ‘the bear’, who drove a Ford GT40 MkIV. This was during his Formula 1 WDC season and represents a rare opportunity to add an original trophy won by a F1 champion with GT40 provenance to your collection. 

The A1 Ring was one of Giancarlo Ficichella’s favourite tracks and the popular Italian secured his maiden pole position there in 1998. From the same season we offer a race used visor hand signed by Fisi.  

In 2017, Valtteri Bottas secured pole and race win in Austria for Mercedes. We have just taken into stock ‘Brilliant Bottas’, an original painting by Andrew Kitson of Valtteri powering to victory through the forest section. The painting is framed and ready to hang. 

Also new into stock we have an original boxed NOS Jackie Stewart edition Momo steering wheel hand signed by the triple WDC and from the current grid a Bremont Williams Racing sponsor cap signed by Alex Albon. 

Austria is the second home race for Red Bull and we have several pieces from the Milton Keynes team including a carbon mounted RB7 mirror, a carbon OZ wheel trim from the RB6 and a used but unsigned Red Bull Junior visor from Sebastian Vettel’s pre F1 career.

Thank you,

Tim
