What F1 merchandise can be purchased?

Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton fans have a great choice of Formula 1 merchandise. Starting with clothing, this is available for men, women and kids and features a great collection of tops, jackets, caps and a special Hugo Boss collection of teamware which includes a limited edition team jacket. There are also special Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton ranges so you can show your support of your favourite driver.

If you want that McLaren look but you don’t want to be more discrete regarding displaying the logo, then you should look at the Lifestyle McLaren and McLaren Sport collection. Undeniably McLaren, there are some superb tops and jackets ranging from the very affordable to the top of the range luxury slim fit leather jacket.

Although clothing tends to be the first thing we think of when it comes to team merchandise, the McLaren range extends far further than that. At the lower end of the price scale there is a range of teamware which includes novelty items such as a team lanyard, team earplugs (which can be very useful if you attend any live F1 races), key rings featuring a either miniature helmet or an embossed speedometer, earphones, a stationery set and the official 2012 calendar.

Moving further up the price range there are some excellent model cars at 1/8 scale. These are created from the original design data and each component is cast by hand using resin with the smaller ones being machined from aluminium. These models are 60 cm long, which is great for displaying every detail of the car. At around £3,500 these are not inexpensive, but the quality is stunning. There are also some cheaper die-cast models, slot car racing kits featuring models of both Jenson Button’s and Lewis Hamilton’s cars, along with a number of construction kits.

You can buy books and DVDs, posters of every race in the 2011 season along with some signed by Lewis Hamilton and replica helmets that range from half scale models to full sized replicas.
