Probably all designed by puma

u/redz191 Carlos Sainz Nov 25 '22

Wtf I really like this year’s design. Got myself the Sainz cap

u/huntergreenhoodie Ferrari Nov 25 '22

Same here but, I got Leclerc

u/manojlds Ferrari Nov 25 '22

And yet, that's the one that's easily recognized by grandmas in third world.

u/PotterOneHalf Jordan Nov 24 '22

Also remember to check out Fuel for Fans next year during the mid season break because they run deep discounts then too

9

u/dolan313 Nico Hülkenberg Nov 25 '22

Are they still trying to get rid of the 4XL Marussia jackets?

19

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

Yes i bought 2021 AM cap from them this summer for like 17€ but AM shop had this years for similar price this week (or still has some)

3

u/fuzionknight96 Max Verstappen Nov 25 '22

Bough from Canada and had to pay 43$ in duties on an order of 2 hats that were 98$. Never ordering from them again, that’s absurd.

u/That__Guy__Bob Nov 24 '22

I'm eyeing up that sexy Bottas bucket hat. Would make a nice addition to my collection

82

u/r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r Nyck de Vries Nov 24 '22

I’m wearing Bottas’ signature outfit every night.

33

u/Kronzor_ Max Verstappen Nov 25 '22

Put some clothes on dude. You’ll get a cold!

u/kjubus Robert Kubica Nov 24 '22

That_Guy_Bob:"nice addition to my collection" Me: Me: Me: [don't!] Me: Me: Hello there!

u/Triple_J124 Nov 25 '22

General Kenobi!

u/ocram9191 Michael Schumacher Nov 25 '22

Monza XL sold out :(

u/JimmerUK #WeRaceAsOne Nov 24 '22

I just went to buy a McLaren umbrella, but then remembered my rain jacket is McLaren too. I reckon I’d look a bit of a dork with both at the same time.

22

u/Hobo__Joe Sebastian Vettel Nov 25 '22

You should get an Alpine umbrella then

18

u/rhllor Zhou Guanyu Nov 25 '22

I reckon I’d look a bit of a dork with both at the same time

Not if you're also driving a McLaren car

29

u/FibonaciSequins Nov 25 '22

Ahhh the Bottas hat is on sale!

Shipping: €39,90

No Code Zero no, this is so not right

8

u/berberine Giancarlo Fisichella Nov 25 '22

I would have purchased the Bottas bucket hat a while ago, but I can't justify it. Hat is $35. Shipping is $40.

5

u/jackoirl Jordan Nov 25 '22

Jesus Christ, does he deliver it?

3

u/Johanonyme Daniel Ricciardo Nov 25 '22

So happy to live in Europe! Got the hat for 26€ shipping included!

47

u/MItrwaway Nov 25 '22

I wouldn't personally. The F1 merch i've gotten has been high price, low quality crap. My t-shirt lettering came off after one wash.

9

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

AlphaTauri/RB is pretty good. Some people say McLaren is bad but my DR shirt i wear& wash often for over a year doesn’t have any flaw

10

u/sunnychrono8 Nov 25 '22

I got a Merc-PETRONAS sports jacket from Puma 5 years ago for ~70USD (F1 merch is more expensive and sort of uncommon in my country). That thing still feels amazing and has held up wonderfully over the years.

18

u/loogie_hucker Zhou Guanyu Nov 25 '22

i’ve found it varies a lot brand to brand. mclarens stuff is iron on garbage

6

u/Impressive-Picture52 Nov 25 '22

Same, i paid for alpine shirt 70€ and letter came off after one washing, on the other hand ferrari shirt of puma is still as new and is 2 years old

2

u/SFRush2049 Formula 1 Nov 25 '22

Wash as delicates and don't use the dryer I've had my stuff last.

12

u/Holodeck2014 Nov 25 '22

FTX still on the side of Hamilton’s… should be $5!

11

u/DinosaurDriver Ayrton Senna Nov 24 '22

Where is the Bottas hat?

19

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

Official Alfa romeo f1 merch site (i think it is some codezero racing since that is their sponsor)

2

u/DinosaurDriver Ayrton Senna Nov 24 '22

Thank you very much!

7

u/Valoen Ayrton Senna Nov 25 '22

I miss the highlighter orange Mclaren Mercedes win shirts 😞

14

u/willboeez Safety Car Nov 24 '22

Can you link it? Can't find these deals anywhere

21

u/Kathulhu1433 Max Verstappen Nov 24 '22

My husband's birthday is in July.

I ordered his birthday present last night.

u/nielsveer1 Chequered Flag Nov 24 '22

Super sweet!! I'm sure he'll love it!!

8

u/Hagtzel Nov 25 '22

Haas Mazepin socks. 💪🏆

3

u/chymni Nov 25 '22

Really like the bucket hat but the shipping cost is 3x the price of the item

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

Depends where u live. Shipping to me is usually <5€

55

u/Johnnywalgger Jacques Villeneuve Nov 24 '22

Still overpriced

25

u/singhzzz Nov 24 '22

It’s like 10 for a tshirt ….

8

u/senseibrittany Nov 24 '22

Seriously! A Verstappen hat was $120 at the US GP

16

u/Subwayabuseproblem Yuki Tsunoda Nov 24 '22

$30 USD for me

6

u/LiteratureNearby Pirelli Wet Nov 25 '22

it's the shipping man

only mclaren has a relatively decent cost at gbp20 :/

1

u/ArcticBP Burristroll if it’s still possible! Nov 25 '22

The RB and AT stuff is priced nicely, but imo the merc and ferrari stuff are still too expensive

1

u/Account_Banned Pierre Gasly Nov 25 '22

I bought a AT hat from Red Bull shop for $15USD yesterday

3

u/silverstar189 Nov 24 '22

Eh I've still got a super aguri shirt I paid a fiver for somewhere

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

I saw a second hand Totota F1 jacket in nice condition for like 15€ somewhere

1

u/silverstar189 Nov 24 '22

Was it the legendary unused 2010 season one?

2

u/DifferentKindaHigh Nov 24 '22

Those sale prices aren’t showing up on the site, only -30%

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

What site?

I usually look at each teams merch store or Fuel for fans

13

u/Lasolie Nov 24 '22

It's never the time to buy any merch. They're overpriced as they are, and the normal prices are marked up 10x manufacturing price.

26

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

Of course they are but better to but the tshirt now for 10-20€ than 40-60€ during the season

15

u/RacerGirl_3 Daniel Ricciardo Nov 24 '22

Also, on the redbull website I just got the hoodie from last year at 22€ (there is a coupon you can use on top of the discounts if you sign up for the newsletter) which I think it’s a good price in general for a hoodie, I think they cost more at H&M nowadays

6

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

In RedBull paddock you can redeem points for doing simple tasks and you can get like 30% discount (sometimes even 50%)

22

u/Equality7252l Nov 24 '22

By that logic you shouldn't buy anything since everything is marked up.

12

u/possums101 McLaren Nov 24 '22

Are you new to sports merchandise or something? What kind of clothes are you wearing where an $11 hat or $35 jacket is overpriced? Lmao

2

u/Lektric Nov 24 '22

Can you link the site with MV winner cap?

Gracias!

2

u/PudgeCake Nov 24 '22

Every week there's a post about someone's nightmare experience of trying to buy F1 merch and getting fucked over in one way or another.

I don't think it could ever be discounted enough for me to trust it.

24

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

That is usually some race worn or signed shit from f1authentics

1

u/kRe4ture Sebastian Vettel Nov 25 '22

Begone, corporate shill!!!

Don’t support their capitalist ways!!!

Nah srsly, I‘d love to stock up on stuff but I‘m just broke af, can someone give me money?

/s (unless…)

-3

u/Ban_incoming_ Robert Kubica Nov 24 '22

how about not buying shitty T-shirts

11

u/shieldwall66 Ayrton Senna Nov 24 '22

Because having a T-shirt with your fave driver or team makes people happy.

3

u/Respectable_Answer Nov 25 '22

Buy vettel shirts, transparent pricing and profits go to good causes.

7

u/JC-Dude Alfa Romeo Nov 24 '22

Why shitty? One of my Red Bull T-shirts is 3 years old and looks brand new even though I wash it with everything else and tumble dry it against recommendations.

7

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

Why couldn’t i buy it i have few that are pretty good quality and actually look good and only person that knows F1 would recognize them

-9

u/estoapesta Nov 24 '22

It looks like verstappen is not selling a lot these days .

21

u/FaultySky Ferrari Nov 24 '22

He sells alot more through his own direct shop, very few other drivers have that option. Causes the F1 store to get stuck with products.

7

u/Apennatie Michael Schumacher Nov 24 '22

Man the amount of Dutch people wearing RB merch is insane.

2

u/inconstant_metronome Max Verstappen Nov 24 '22

Right?! I've started seeing it as casual wear so much more over the past few months. Same is true for Ferrari merch, though less frequently. Still can't quite wrap my head around the fact F1 is this popular now you regularly see F1 merch out in the wild.

16

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

Whole RB is cheap since they are parting ways with Puma so they want to get rid of everything they have.

The team that is always pretty cheap if you don’t buy directly is McLaren. Like i have no problem finding their 2019 merch

1

u/coolyfrost McLaren Nov 24 '22

What websites are you finding the best deals?

2

u/Negative-Ad-8824 McLaren Nov 24 '22

fuel for fans had some great deals. I got gulf mclaren caps for under 20 euros each

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

Either the official team store which all teams have or Fuel for fans. Depends where is the item cheaper

6

u/monstere316 Ayrton Senna Nov 24 '22

He's gotta make room for the 2023 championship gear

-4

u/callmelampshade Formula 1 Nov 24 '22

It’s all the old shit though.

5

u/eskimobrother319 Guenther Steiner Nov 24 '22

The gulf livery polo still looks amazing, that powered blue is hot

11

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 24 '22

I mean lot of it is 2022 and does it really matter how old is it? I have merch of non active drivers and don’t mind wearing it in public if it looks good and doesn’t have 600 logos on it

1

u/Bismalz Nov 24 '22

I’m looking for a high quality Alonso Alpine kimoa cap as seen in this image. as well as the Ferrari Hungary poster.

Does anyone know of trustworthy high quality online outlets that shop to the Netherlands?

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

Either buy directly from Kimoa. Or Alpine merch site

1

u/Ravingz Nov 24 '22

Just bought a piece of that alfa romeo camo livery collection! Thanks for the reminder, subscribing for the news letters gives an additional 10% as well.

1

u/TheGreatNathan AlphaTauri Nov 24 '22 edited Nov 24 '22

Where do you find the 2021champions merch on the first pic?

Edit: Never mind that's the Red Bull team store. They don't ship to Canada, what a joke!

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

Maybe look at Fuel for fans

1

u/Pasqwali Nov 25 '22

You can try checking the Verstappen store? They ship to Canada, surprisingly quick shipping in my experience.

1

u/NooberOnABike Nov 25 '22

Bought some yesterday.

1

u/PM_ME_GARLIC_CUPS Pierre Gasly Nov 25 '22

50% off the bucket hat? :)

Shipping still 40 euro to the United States? >:(

Figure it out, Alfa Romeo!

1

u/AEWWC Kimi Räikkönen Nov 25 '22

I'll check it out because that stuff is way overpriced most of the time.

1

u/inquisitor91 Nov 25 '22

It's too bad all the hats are snap backs. I don't like the way they fit compared to stretch fit hats also a snap back hat should not be so expensive.

2

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

I only want snapbacks when it is a cap i put on my wall (usually signed)

1

u/veerusg Mika Häkkinen Nov 25 '22

Got myself a Bottas Alfa cap. Thought it would be neat to get an Alfa item before the name change

1

u/WiSoSirius Jody Scheckter Nov 25 '22

I've been waiting all year to get my Vettel hat.

1

u/[deleted] Nov 25 '22

Aite boys, time to buy is now if you have been waiting all year for it.

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

I just think it is better now to byi it for 10-20€ than 40-60€ during year

1

u/SpacevsGravity Audi Nov 25 '22

Still overpriced as fuck

1

u/berberine Giancarlo Fisichella Nov 25 '22

I only wanted a Williams flag. Figured I'd check tonight when I got to work to see if they were on sale. Found out it cost $0 while I was asleep and sold out.

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

I have ordered it as soon as i posted it here

1

u/berberine Giancarlo Fisichella Nov 25 '22

I didn't know anything was on sale yet and was asleep when you posted. It's okay though. Not the first time I didn't get something. There will be other sales and other flags.

1

u/monstere316 Ayrton Senna Nov 25 '22

If it makes you feel better, those are apparently getting cancelled.

1

u/berberine Giancarlo Fisichella Nov 25 '22

I saw that thread. It makes me feel better because I can get a flag, but I also feed bad because I'm a firm supporter of companies following through when they screw up and all those folks should be getting flags.

1

u/KarlAu3r Niki Lauda Nov 25 '22

Mooooom

1

u/Dreminator Honda Nov 25 '22

Oh right, black Friday deals.
Now is a good time to get a Lewis Hamilton cap for my daughter to match with her max verstappen shirt.

2

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

I have Max helmet 1/2 scale and i am looking to buy a Lewis one

1

u/oogabooger69 Alexander Albon Nov 25 '22

I bought a dope red bull jacket once. Looked amazing and was a good price. It arrived and it was a kid size. Nowhere on the website it said that it was kid size.

So be careful

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

It usually says YOUTH in the same place tou see Men or Unisex in the picture

1

u/oogabooger69 Alexander Albon Nov 25 '22

Well.... i didnt see that! 😭 I gave it as a gift to a kid i knew. He loved it so am happy either way haha

1

u/AggnogPOE Michael Schumacher Nov 25 '22

The right time is never, it's all overpriced garbage no matter the price.

1

u/mochatsubo Nov 25 '22

Even with the discount, a Mercedes F1 baseball cap comes out to $54 (shipping, duty, taxes) to Canada. :(

1

u/williemaykit Sir Lewis Hamilton Nov 25 '22

The Silverstone store is doing 50% store wide today. Most of the F1 stuff is Mercedes, RBR, AM and McLaren

1

u/SovereignDeadly George Russell Nov 25 '22

Can anyone vouch for merch from the Mercedes website? Have heard bad things about mclaren quality!

1

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

I did too but surprisingly my DR3 shirt i wear and wash for over a year doesn’t have any signs of wear so far. Probably depends how you wash it

But from my experience AlphaTauri&RedBull merch is best

1

u/Magictank2000 Red Bull Nov 25 '22

Yep, snagged myself a red bull and ferrari polo

1

u/iam_mustafa Nov 25 '22

Send link

2

u/ONT1mo Michael Masi Nov 25 '22

To what?

I usually buy from each teams merch store OR Fuel for fans

1

u/NPC_4842358 Max Verstappen Nov 25 '22

Thanks man, I ordered an RB teamline shirt. Here's hoping I can fit into S.

1

u/datb0yavi Nov 26 '22

Way ahead of ya just bought a red bull team hoodie
