Caterham’s merchandise range looks the part, sporting the famous number seven and taking a more minimal approach to motor sport apparel. The manufacturer’s official range of T-shirts isn’t just limited to this white number, with different colours and styles available, all evoking Caterham’s six decades of history.

Ferrari SF-71H model
A 1:43 scale model of Sebastian Vettel’s 2018 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix-winning Ferrari SF-71H, complete with the halo and all the small details from the Ferrari that raced the first round of the season. Something to marvel at, considering the sculpted front wing and detailing on the SF-71H’s floor. If anything, it’ll remind any Ferrari fan of the pre-season optimism – and the Scuderia’s storming start to the season. Also available in Kimi Räikkönen’s livery.
