Here are some brilliant Formula 1 gift ideas to give to the F1 fanatic in your life. No matter the occasion, we're here to help you find that perfect present any Formula 1 fan will love.

Formula 1 is not a sport you can like half-heartedly. You either don’t pay attention to it or it consumes your whole life during a race weekend.

Because of that, finding the right gift for a Formula 1 fan can be a bit tricky. There is a lot out there, but if you don’t know what’s good, it's hard to know what’s best to get.

Here’s where we’ve come to help. Take a look as we show you some brilliant Formula 1 gift ideas that are great for everyone and for every occasion!

Formula 1 Accessories

If you’re looking for something smaller, then look no further than F1 accessory items. From Leather keyrings and lanyards to umbrellas, you can get smaller gifts to pad the stocking, add to the birthday pile, or for any other occasion you may be buying gifts for.

These smaller gifts can be a good way to ensure whoever you’re buying for always has a bit of F1 on them at all times while showing off their love for the sport.

Similarly, if you’re looking for something a bit more unique, Etsy is always a brilliant place to shop. There are plenty of unique, personalised and oftentimes quirky ideas that are sure to delight any fan!

Formula 1 Lego, Models & Posters

Something more for their space at home, Formula 1 has a great range of LEGO sets that are good fun for all ages - because we all know you never really grow out of LEGO!

These LEGO sets are often in the form of teams and their cars, and can range from full sets to large-scale car models.

Similarly, you don’t have to get something they have to build, but instead a simple Formula 1 model car is a great present, and can also go from as small as 1:43 scale (10-13cm/ 4-5 inches) to 1:18 scale (25-30cm/ 10-12 inches).

Formula 1 remote control car models are also a great idea for the younger fan. It's a great place to start if you’re looking to get them into racing - Lewis Hamilton started off racing RC cars, and now he’s a seven-time world champion!

Posters are another great option. Wall decorations are always a safe bet, and F1 posters can be good for the bedroom, living room, or games room.

The posters can be in all kinds of styles. Track layouts, driver helmets, race-specific, modern takes on old-school-style. There are all sorts of creative posters out there to choose from.

Team/Driver Merchandise

There’s nothing better than representing your favourite team or driver, and there’s no better way to do so than with their merchandise.

Hats, shirts, jumpers, and much more are perfect for whoever you are buying for, and would pair perfectly with a set of tickets to a Grand Prix, as merch is a must at the race if looking to show full support.

There are many places to get merch from. The official F1 store has a range for each team, while every team also has their own store. Or you can look for more unique/ personalised options from sites like Redbubble, which always has brilliant designs made by fans.

If you want to give the ultimate driving experience to your loved one, then a Silverstone track experience is the way to go.

The iconic British circuit has a range of experiences available, from driving supercars like a Ferrari or Aston Martin to experiencing the track like a real F1 driver in a Formula Single Seater.

The experiences come with a lesson beforehand from a professional instructor, someone who has driven the track countless times and has experienced success in various racing categories.

What’s more, all experiences bought through the Silverstone website come with two free tickets to the Silverstone museum. It's essentially two experiences in one!

Premium F1 Grand Prix Experience

While everything before makes for fantastic gift options, none of it truly compares to being in attendance for a race itself. But to make it even better, give the gift of a premium Formula 1 Grand Prix hospitality package.

Hospitality packages and premium tickets to a Grand Prix will ensure the absolute best experience, with unparalleled access and exciting benefits that will provide an unforgettable race day.

Every race and circuit offers something different in their package, making every one of them unique and having something special to offer to your F1 fan. The benefits they could experience include:

  • Access to one of the track's exclusive hospitality lounges
  • Prime views either from a dedicated grandstand seat or from another exclusive viewing location
  • Food and drink offerings
  • Entertainment between sessions

As we say, every circuit is different, so be sure to check out the pages available at each Grand Prix to see what is included.

Seat Unique is delighted to be able to offer these packages to many of the races in 2023, especially for the Baku City Grand Prix and Monza Grand Prix, as we work officially with both to provide fans with the very best tickets and packages.

Check out the ticket packages we have available for each race for the rest of the season and choose the one that would be best for your loved one!
