I'd buy and wear them, but probably not for the price they want

Any idea what price range we talking? Less than $200? More than $500? Lot more?

No idea unfortunately, I can't find any comps online and this pair were supposedly just on display and not for sale. Maybe $500-800?

Seriously. Renault is the worst works team and Williams is just the worst team

It doesn’t even seem possible for a top team to just backslide that much anymore. Hard to believe Renault’s last world champion is still driving while these days they’re lucky if a driver finishes in the top 8

They obviously forgot when Ocon won

Or when DRic got a podium in 2020

Alpine/Renault are the worst works team though - the only other two are Merc/Ferrari (and if you really want to push it, RB). Aston/McLaren use Merc engines, and Alfa are just sponsorship with Ferrari, so they are the worst works team.

I still fondly remember 2012 and 13 Lotus with Kimi and Grosjean.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen

Really? A pair of these in this condition would go for a lot of money nowadays, surely?

EDIT: Yep, around $500 a pair. I'd have these, they're from my teenage F1 years but I wasn't cool enough then. Or now probably 😂

I had a pair of these when I was getting into f1 when I was around 9. this was back in 1993. They were by far and away my favorites

Williams haven't got the budget for a car next year, Albon and Sargeant will go jogging in these for the race.
