BBR Models has paid tribute to Sebastian Vettel's antics at the end of the Canadian GP with this clever diorama of parc ferme
As any collector of diecast F1 cars knows, there are hundreds of special editions built to commemorate specific moments - great wins, great drives, great battles, you name it. This one is a little different, though, because it doesn’t actually feature a car.
That’s because the model (well, it’s more of a diorama, really) by BBR Models commemorates Vettel’s decision not to park with the rest of the top three after he’d been stripped of the win in Montreal, courtesy of that five-second penalty. For just over £15, you get a 1/43-scale box which is largely empty, apart from the ‘Number 1’ board which Vettel made a point to switch before reluctantly heading to the podium.
Showing great attention to detail, the base even shows the shadow of Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes and even a nearby manhole cover.
It is, quite frankly, a brilliant idea. If you’re still miffed about the result then having a reminder of it on your shelf might not help you get over it - although by now, surely. All that’s needed now is a small, angry-looking Vettel figurine and the look will be completed.
Bravo, BBR Models. Bravo.
