A belated tribute to one of my favourite drivers. I sketched this from a photo I took at the 2005 Goodwood Festival of speed, at which Stirling Moss piloted his legendary Mercedes 300SLR up the course. Racing is diminished by his passing.

2017 Williams F1 Concept
My Williams FW39 concept – McLaren up next.
2017 F1 concept sketches
Trying to get a head start on my 2017 F1 concepts, the sketches above are largely the same but with different detailing… Thinking of using elements from all 3…
2015 Infiniti Red Bull Racing RB11 concept.
I may (perhaps rightly) be accused of doing too little with this one – I just think it is exceedingly unlikely that Red Bull will change anything major… there M.O. has been one of “evolution” rather than “revolution” – so I’ve stuck with a pretty standard format here. What I have tried to do isContinue reading “2015 Infiniti Red Bull Racing RB11 concept.”
2015 Ferrari F15 Concept
It will be strange to see a Ferrari F1 car without the Shell logo featured prominently on the side pod, but my guess is that with the addition of Haas as a sponsor that’s probably what’s going to happen – what do you think? For old time’s sake, I’ve given Shell real prominence (perhaps tooContinue reading “2015 Ferrari F15 Concept”
2015 McLaren MP4-30 F1 Concept
I don’t really think that McLaren will go with their orange livery – but I wish they would! Telefonica/Movistar? An educated guess – but who knows? I’m generally happy with this although orange is a difficult colour to deal with from a digital perspective (for me, anyway) and this has come off a little moreContinue reading “2015 McLaren MP4-30 F1 Concept”
2015 Mercedes W06 F1 Concept
I’ve tried to keep these a little more literal this year. With the Mercedes W06, I wanted to make it appear a little “meaner”, more nasty, so I’ve gotten rid of all the Petronas turquoise and tried to streamline it a bit. Still likely wouldn’t be “legal”. 🙂 I’ll try to publish the McLaren andContinue reading “2015 Mercedes W06 F1 Concept”
Williams retro-futurist rendering
Yet another photoshop bodge. Last one for a while I think – must get back to using pencil the odd time… This one imagines a mix of the new rules (VERY loosely) allied to inspiration from the 1986 Williams FW11. Once again – cheating tons here – using Goodyears that don’t exist, the “Red Five”Continue reading “Williams retro-futurist rendering”
F1 Lotus Concept
Another retro/futurist photoshop bodge-job. This is based loosely on the 2013 Lotus. I altered the shape to be a little less “noisy” and altered the graphics to reflect something more of the classic Lotus 97T/98T (1985/1986). As usual, got a little carried away – this was supposed to be a bit more “painterly” (if oneContinue reading “F1 Lotus Concept”
First pencil sketch in a while – and I’ve buggered it up quite comprehensively… I think the drawing is reasonably good, but I worked on the wrong vellum and dragged the heel of my hand all over the drawing making a real mess, which needed to be cleaned up in both analog and digital formats.Continue reading “Fangio Mercedes”
