As always with our F1 Podium Art, we want to tell a potent story that provokes nostalgia in those who are looking at the artwork. On this particular model, for 1989, we wrote:
“The Prost-Senna rivalry is one of the greatest in F1 history, and it was at its most intense when they were team-mates at McLaren (88-89)
Alain Prost won the 1989 title under very controversial circumstances; at the Japanese GP, the penultimate race of the season, Senna attempted to overtake Prost for the lead of the race. Prost intentionally turned into Senna to prevent him from passing, causing both of them to crash.
Senna managed to get his car back to the pits and went on to win the race, only to be disqualified by FIA afterwards for “not completing the lap”. This decision handed Prost the title.”
Each helmet has been drawn by hand. We wanted to do our best in replicating the helmet designs of all three drivers for that season. However, we draw these helmets from scratch with nothing more than a few photographs in our archives as a reference.
With that in mind, we humbly ask for your understanding should you notice any imperfections.
