2014 Sebastian Vettel Race Worn Red Bull Racing Alpinestars F1 Suit
Race-worn Alpinestars suit used by Sebastian Vettel during the 2014 F1 season while driving for the Infiniti Red Bull team.
Vettel is currently competing in Formula One for Aston Martin, having previously driven for BMW Sauber, Toro Rosso, Red Bull and Ferrari. Vettel has won four World Drivers’ Championship titles which he won consecutively from 2010 to 2013, all with Red Bull Racing. The sport’s youngest World Champion, as of 2020, Vettel has the third most race victories (53) and podium finishes (122) and the fourth most pole positions (57).
After winning 4 consecutive World F1 Drivers’ Championships the 2014 season would be a difficult one for Vettel. That year all the drivers picked a unique car number to use for the remainder of their Formula One career, with Vettel choosing the number 5. However, as reigning World Drivers’ Champion, he carried the prestigious No. 1 throughout the season.
Unfortunately Vettel would struggle with reliability issues throughout winter testing, which would eventually force him to retire at the opening Australian Grand Prix. Reliability problems also forced Vettel to retire at the Monaco and Austrian Grands Prix. Vettel qualified on the front-row for the races in Malaysia, Great Britain and Hungary, and finished on the podium in Malaysia, Canada, Singapore and Japan. Vettel would eventually finish 5th overall in his final year at Infiniti Red Bull Racing before moving on to the Scuderia Ferrari for the following 6 seasons.
This suit is an important piece of F1 and Red Bull racing history and would be an excellent addition to any collection. So don’t hesitate to own one from a former 4-time F1 Champion.
The suit comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
