Ferrari shows Lego-made F1 car in Melbourne

Both Ferrari F1 drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa attended last week at the presentation of an F1 car made out of Lego. This would have to be a 1:1 scale model of the company’s 2011 car which was fitted with real Pirelli tires and had a racing seat. Lego was also used for making the interior cabin, including that complex F1 steering wheel with all those buttons and switches.

This was done as part of a Ferrari and Shell promotion which consists of several promotional items available in some parts of the world.

One fine example would have to be the Lego kits with six important Ferrari models like the FXX, F150 Italia, F40, 458 Italia, 250 GT Berlinetta, along with the Scuderia Ferrari Truck. If you can’t get a hold of these kits in your country, you might consider buying them from eBay or other similar sources.

The 2013 Formula 1 kicked off last week with the Australian GP where Fernando Alonso achieved second place while Felipe Massa crossed the finish line on the fourth sport. Driving a Lotus, Kimi Raikkonen took the win and is now in the lead of the drivers’ championship, while in the team’s championship Ferrari is the first.
