What Types of Formula 1 Apparel Are Available?

Official Formula 1 apparel featured at F1Store.Formula1.com includes T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies, polos and duckbill caps, as of 2015. There are also select brands of sneakers and an assortment of accessories, such as sports bags, messenger bags, lanyards, keychains and USB sticks.

Visitors to the Web store search by team, driver or the categories of official team wear, leisure wear, accessories and gifts. Hovering over Teamwear reveals a link to featured teams, such as Mercedes, Sauber, Lotus, Williams Martini and McLaren.

Some F1 sponsors who sell apparel have multiple teams, such as Scuderia, which sponsors Ferrari and Toro Rosso. Toro Rosso is Italian for red bull, but it is not affiliated with Red Bull energy drinks. However, there is a Red Bull team that luxury car-manufacturer Infiniti sponsors, and its apparel is also available at the Web store.

Clicking on the name of a sponsor or a team opens a webpage that features the team's star drivers. The Teamwear category ties directly into star drivers, as it's a replica of precisely what drivers and supportive team members don during actual Formula 1 racing events.

Depending on the team, prices of clothing, gifts and accessories range from roughly $40 to $250 and change seasonally, with duckbill caps and beanies costing a little under $50, all as of August 2015.
