Detailed Product Description
Available in multiple sizes to suit any environment, this piece of artwork shows François Cevert’s 1973 stunning French-flag based F1 helmet design, along with a potent quote of his that, in hindsight, adds a element of tragedy to the artwork.
"It would take more courage for me to give up racing than to continue”.
François Cevert started his motorsport career racing motorcycles, however, he soon switched his focus to four wheels and was very fast out of the box and won the French Formula 3 championship in his second season, which got him a seat in Formula 1.
Cevert joined Tyrell and became F1 legend Jackie Stewart’s protégé. However, he would struggle to beat the Scot during their near-four-year time together, but this didn’t mean that he lacked pace.
Tragically, François Cevert’s only Formula 1 Grand Prix win came at Watkins Glen (USA) in 1971, the same race track where he tragically lost his life two years later, in 1973, during qualifying.
A pure racer; Cevert had huge potential and, whilst aware of the dangers involved, enjoyed racing too much to quit.
