The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalonia has revealed this Thursday what is already the official image of the FORMULA 1 ARAMCO GRAND PRIZE OF SPAIN 2021. He has also done so with art and illustration, once again uniting this unique discipline with the motor. For this occasion, the Spanish illustrator and creative David Despau has been commissioned to carry out the remarkable commission. The designed image represents three fundamental elements in a Grand Prix based on its colors and its protagonists.
On the one hand, the race itself, where black predominates, representing the asphalt, the tires or the adrenaline of speed. Then the drivers and their cars. The Reigning F1 World Champion Lewis Hamilton, who appears with the two Spanish representatives, Carlos Sainz, dressed in his Ferrari jumpsuit for what will be his first home Grand Prix with the Maranello signature, and the two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, which this year has returned to the ‘Great Circus’ by the hand of Alpine. Finally, the bright colors of each of its teams -Mercedes, Ferrari and Alpine- merge with black to represent Barcelona, the Mediterranean city that hosts the F1 Spanish Grand Prix, which is also represented by the sacred Family, one of the most emblematic places in the city of Barcelona.
