Better By Design – Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant F1 Team

Discover the story behind the designs of our latest Aston Martin products 

Through thought-provoking bodywork pieces that tell the story of the cars they came from, to items reminiscent of momentous moments, our Aston Martin collection is etched with unparalleled history. 

A partnership to be proud of 

Our team has worked with Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant F1 Team for several years, from its days as Force India and Racing Point, to where it is today. 

Aston Martin has a rich heritage; an iconic brand in the automotive industry, the British name is one most can recall. The brand’s story stretches back decades in Formula 1, having its first outings on the F1 track during the 1950s. The team has had intermittent involvement in the sport over the years but made a full come back in 2021 – returning to the tracks under the management of Lawrence Stroll, father of Lance Stroll who continued with the team, with the addition of four-time World Champion, Sebastian Vettel as his teammate. 

They had a triumphant comeback season, with the team achieving their first ever podium in F1 with Vettel claiming 2nd place at the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix. The team’s successes have continued into 2023, with two-time World Champion, Fernando Alonso (Aston Martin’s current driver), claiming several podiums and expecting more great results as the season progresses.

Working directly with the team allows us to have access to a diverse range of memorabilia, that you won’t find elsewhere - from the official race used racewear used during the current season, to heritage pieces from seasons past. 

The Creative Process - Driven by Design 

The F1 Authentics workforce have over 100 years of experience collectively working in the motorsport industry - from product designers, to race car engineers and mechanics, to paintshop and composite technicians. This shared craftsmanship is reflected in each and every one of our products – with each piece re-engineered with a precision that amplifies its design and showcases its unique heritage. 

Once bodywork has been used it is delivered to F1 Authentics, via the race team. Our product designers then begin drawing up designs for items that can either be used or act as standout display pieces, all whilst incorporating the bodywork and accentuating their magnificence.     

“These products are collectors’ items by virtue of the fact they are centred around unique race-used components from the Aston Martin F1 team. The exotic materials and complex manufacturing processes involved imbue these products with value and visual interest.  

“The design team’s aim is to harness this to create striking, functional products that sit comfortably in your home environment. The component is the star, but it must also serve a purpose as a key functional part of a product, placing the pinnacle of engineering on show. 

“We work hard to maintain the integrity of each component, using the features of the part to find our fixing locations. That way the owner can always remove the original part fully intact if they wish to. The authenticity is furthered by the fact we work with local suppliers who are part of the wider network supporting the F1 teams in the Silverstone area.”

Engine Cover Table 

Supporters of four-time World Champion, Sebastian Vettel, (who drove for the team between 2021 and 2022) now have the chance to not only own a piece of his race car, but display it as part of their home or office décor.

Our team of experts have creatively taken a race used engine cover from Vettel’s AMR21 and turned it into a showstopping table. In 2021, Vettel's first season with the team, he secured a respectable 12th place with 43 points including his 2nd place in Baku. With four consecutive World Drivers' Championship titles from 2010 to 2013, Vettel stands as one of F1's most successful drivers. His legacy includes records for youngest World Champion, third-most race victories (53), podium finishes (122), and fourth-most pole positions.

This special table, featuring his racing number ‘5’ for all to admire, allows you to commemorate his remarkable F1 journey. The glass-topped table elegantly showcases the authentic bodywork, adding a dynamic racing touch to any space, etched with the team's name for a perfect finish.
