Celebrating Lewis Hamilton’s 100th F1 Win

Lewis Hamilton’s 100th career Formula One victory, achieved Sunday in dramatic fashion in the Russian Grand Prix, is indeed a remarkable accomplishment, something no one in the early days of grand prix racing could have ever predicted. Consider that when Jim Clark won the first race of the 1968 season, he held the sport’s career record at 25 wins. Sir Jackie Stewart pushed the mark to 27 with a win in the 11th race of the 1973 season, and that stood...

McLaren might not be all the way back to the top of Formula One, but last week’s 1-2 finish in the Italian Grand Prix at Monza showed that the Zak Brown-led program is working its way there. Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris took the top two positions on the podium, giving the Woking organization its first grand prix victory since the Jenson Button-Lewis Hamilton pairing in 2012. Now two-thirds of the way through the 2021 season, McLaren is a solid third...

Don’t be fooled: Collect authentic F1 driver boots

Race boot styles have changed over the years. Look back to the pre-1960s and drivers wore normal dress shoes before transitioning to more of a racing boot. But even those were leather. It wasn’t until the 1970s that drivers started using fireproof shoes. Then custom designs started becoming the norm and today we can showcase many of those styles here at Hall of Fame Collection. Starting with reigning Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, we have just received in stock boots he wore...

F1 Driver Helmets: The Ultimate Prize

The ultimate prize for a collector of authentic and race-used Formula One merchandise are the helmets of the drivers. These one-of-a-kind helmets are usually designed to the individual tastes of the drivers, which makes them even more special. Finding one, much less obtaining one, can be extremely difficult since drivers receive only so many per season and many of them are kept or contracted to give to team owners or sponsors. Drivers also trade helmets with each other so very few remain. Outside...

Hamilton is riding an almost incomprehensible streak of success, winning six World Championships over the past seven seasons, with at least nine wins in each of those years. In fact, he has won at least 10 races in those...
