Design: Sebastian Vettel’s 2015 Ferrari helmet

ArtFormula 1

Sebastian Vettel is a controversial driver in Formula 1: you either hate him, or love him. Making his debut in 2007 for BMW Sauber as a temporary replacement for the concussed Robert Kubica, Vettel went on to make his full season debut for Toro Rosso in 2008. He scored STR’s first and to date only victory in the soaking wet temple of speed, Monza. He was promoted to Red Bull for the subsequent season, and won his first WDC in 2010, after which he dominated with three more WDC wins in 2011, 2012 and 2013 – causing a lot of hate from people fearing another Schumacher era. The 2014 season marked a turning point in his career. The car (but mostly the engine) was relatively terrible, prompting Vettel to leave for Ferrari and subsequently dropping the Red Bull helmet design for this minimalist beauty.

Design: Fernando Alonso’s 2017 Indianapolis 500 helmet

ArtFormula 1

Fernando Alonso. He’s having a hard time currently with the McLaren Honda in Formula 1. The two-time WDC winner with Renault started his career with Minardi scoring points on his debut. Moved to Renault, ended Schumacher’s reign by dominating the ’05 and ’06 season and left for McLaren. At McLaren, he was pushed out by Ron Dennis in favor of the then new talent Lewis Hamilton, only to return to Renault. He was picked up by Ferrari to replace Raikkonen in order to challenge the Red Bulls – a venture which ultimately ended in a lot of frustration and disappointment. He then turned to McLaren for the new Honda era, which remains largely fruitless three seasons in. In order for Alonso to keep sane, McLaren have allowed him to take part in the Indianapolis 500 this year, matched with a fresh, retro-inspired helmet design, as pictured above.

Design: Niki Lauda’s 1984 helmet

ArtFormula 1

Niki Lauda is perhaps among the top three of the most famous drivers F1 has had, next to Schumacher and Senna. The Austrian driver entered Formula 1 in 1971 and had his last season in 1985. Not only is he known for the three world titles he achieved during his career and being the only one doing so with both Ferrari and McLaren, he is probably best remembered by his horrible crash at the Nürburgring which left most of his face with third degree burns. The title challenge between him and James Hunt in the 1976 season was excellently depicted in the Ron Howard movie ‘Rush‘ (IMDb). It is available on Netflix, and if you haven’t seen it already, you must do so as soon as possible if you have only a tiny bit of enthusiasm for racing. Keep reading

Design: Alonso’s McLaren Andretti Honda Indycar

ArtFormula 1

I took a break from drawing Ferrari’s, but not from drawing thoroughbred racing cars. After the retro Ferrari 641 (F1) and Ferrari 333SP (Le Mans), we jump to the other side of the Atlantic, and to Ferrari’s long time rivals: McLaren. With Alonso’s shock announcement that he will be driving the Indy 500 this year for a new McLaren entry (in cooperation with Andretti Racing), powered by Honda. McLaren driving the Indy 500 is one with historic significance, as they took part ~50 years ago as well, before they decided to focus entirely on F1 after Bruce’s death.

Design: Ferrari 333SP (90’s LMP)

Art

Another new design, another Ferrari. This time, though, it is not a Formula 1 car but a 90’s Le Mans Prototype – or LMP for short. You can see the full design, in all its glory, after the jump – as well as some examples of products you can buy this design on. Let me know what you think by either rating this post, or commenting – so I know what direction to go in in the future!
