Formula 1 Wall of Champions: F1 1000 Edition

After F1 reached the historic milestone of 1000 races, I decided it was time to update and redesign my Wall of Champions. Designed back in 2014, the version on my wall now annoys me with how out of date it is.

So, trying to use images of drivers in the year they won their first championship where possible, the updated version gives a snapshot in time of the champions of the first 1000 races.

Formula 1 Wall of Champions

Formula One World Champions since 1950I finally completed a little home decorating project; my F1 Wall of Champions.

Every formula one word champion since 1950 proudly displaying their year(s) of victory (Schumacher was a bit of a squeeze!). Stitched together on Photoshop, I had this printed on a large canvas which now graces my living room wall.

If you like this, I updated it to celebrate F1 1000.

So, if like me you’re a lifelong watcher and have never been before GO; it was one of the best experiences of my life (and don’t worry about the details)!
