Latest Guide: V3 – British Grand Prix
Latest update: Saturday 1st August
The unofficial SpotterGuides.com Formula 1 Guide returns this year.
In the days before the pandemic, I decided to rescurrect the F1 Spotter Guide. I didn’t have the hours to create all the illustrations and during Feburary I ended up with a shoulder injury from too much work, so all in, it wasn’t the best timing. I decided to partner with GraphicNews.com (Many of the infographics you see in the media are produced by them) and purchased a set of car and helmet illustrations including the relevant rights.
If only I knew what was around the corner less than a week later…
Anyway, the guide has now been released and will be updated during this strange season. Hope you find it useful.
Driver helmets are likely to change race by race (looking at you Lando!) basis, so these are only a guide.
In addition, some teams have a roating roster of sponsors (McLaren with BAT brands like VELO and Ferrari with Mission Winrow branding) and will not be updated race by race.
Version 3, was released prior to the British Grand Prix and includes Nico Hulkenberg substiute and updated McLaren livery.
While I don’t plan on including all helmet updates, I have included the one-off Norris helmet for Britain ….and yes, the dropped ‘S’ for Norris is deliberate in recognisition of Eva Muttram’s helmet design (ironically on the other side to that shown on the guide)
The guide will return for 2021 depending on its popularity and maybe sponsorship.
