Kit yourself out in F1 team colours. Here?óÔé¼Ôäós a selection of some of the more eye-catching items from the teams?óÔé¼Ôäó merchandise lines.
McLaren?óÔé¼Ôäós bright orange ?óÔé¼?£victory?óÔé¼Ôäó shirt is not for the faint-hearted but if you reckon you?óÔé¼Ôäóve got the fashion sense to make it work ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ and you?óÔé¼Ôäóre a McLaren fan ?óÔé¼ÔÇ£ then go for it.
The rest of McLaren?óÔé¼Ôäós range is a bit more low-key with its muted silver/grey tones.
- Buy the McLaren-Mercedes ?óÔé¼?£victory?óÔé¼Ôäó team T-shirt
- Buy the Lewis Hamilton long sleeve race top
- Buy the Lewis Hamilton championship cap
- Buy the Heikki Kovalainen cap
Ferrari?óÔé¼Ôäós red gear is loud, proud stuff and de rigeur if you?óÔé¼Ôäóre planning a trip to Monza. I particularly like the classic Scudetto T-shirt design – no sponsors, just the Cavallino Rampante. Alternatively, Kimi Raikkonen and Felipe Massa’s T shirts carry bright splashes of their national colours.

At Silverstone last year I met a group of Renault fans proudly kitted out in their team?óÔé¼Ôäós challenging colour combination of yellow, blue, orange and white. It?óÔé¼Ôäós not easy on the eye, and Fernando Alonso?óÔé¼Ôäós fans must miss the days of Renault being light blue and yellow, which conveniently matched the flag of Alonso?óÔé¼Ôäós home province of Asturias.
With Renault title sponsor ING now being propped up by the Dutch government, this might not be the most future-proof choice of apparel either?óÔé¼?ª
Smart, simple blue-and-white (or white-and-blue) gear from BMW.
Red Bull & Toro Rosso
Uber-trendy Red Bull have predictably stylish kit. The logo cap and stencilled T-shirt are my favourite.
I?óÔé¼Ôäóm not a fan of Toro Rosso?óÔé¼Ôäós bull motif though. And at this point it?óÔé¼Ôäós impossible to tell which drivers you?óÔé¼Ôäóll be supporting next year if you go to a race in Toro Rosso?óÔé¼Ôäós gear.
I especially like the clean design of Nico Rosberg’s logo and the unfussy Williams team T-shirt.
I can’t pretend to like Toyota’s colour scheme on its team gear any more than I do on its car. I do, however, like the bold red cap – though if you wear it from a distance people will think you’re a Ferrari fan.
Force India F1 team
I like Force India’s bold ‘FI’ logo as on the back of their zipped sweater. Adrian Sutil’s fans can walk around with ‘Capri-Sun’ on their foreheads: in a sport populated with many grey corporate sponsors, there’s something appealing about an F1 cap with a children’s fruit juice manufacturer on the front…
Other F1 clothing
I got one of these Ayrton Senna ?óÔé¼?£Double S?óÔé¼Ôäó logo T-shirts myself last year:
