Best and worst F1 trophies
- 6th October 2013, 10:00 at 10:00 am #133729
Which races do you think have the best and worst trophies?
Worst: Singapore. I don’t think they get much worse than the one from 2011:
2012 Singapore was an improvement, at least it was unique:
2013 Singapore reverted to hideousness:
Best: Hungary. Classic look, while also very unique. I’d love to have one of these sitting on my mantle.

Worst has to be those Santander turds that appear in every race that they sponsor, though I have been seeing less of them lately.
Another awful design has to be the Eni ones that the gave out at Hungary a few years ago.
Can you imagine putting so much hard work into taking a race victory and the trophy you have to remember it is just a companies logo.6th October 2013, 10:36 at 10:36 am #242783
Britain: It’s a classic design that never changes. And it’s gold, what’s not to like! ;) http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/y_alon_harr_silv_2011.jpg
Hungary: As @cumulonimbus said, its a really unique trophy and it really does stand out in the crowd. The constructors one if pretty cool too! http://www.formula1.com/wi/gi/597×478/oe7a/sutton/2013/d13hun1803.jpg
Australia: I like the steering wheel look. http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/79P5344.jpg.
The worst: Any of those Santander ones…they are an abomination.6th October 2013, 10:43 at 10:43 am #242784
Yeah, those are pretty bad. Very bland. I think those are the second, third, and constructor’s trophies from the British GP. At least the winner gets the nice gold ones. The German GP also has Santander-style trophies:

This year the Belgian GP also had a ‘australia’ style tropy but with the shell logo placed in the middle, imgaine if they handed out shell inspired trophies like Santander… yuk6th October 2013, 11:21 at 11:21 am #242786
Agreed @force-maikel – a classic track like Spa ought to be giving out better trophies than this:

Worst one has to be this one from Italy 2004 that looks like a giant cigarette http://www.f1rejects.com/centrale/2004/italy/rotr.jpg6th October 2013, 11:46 at 11:46 am #242788
I forgot about the 2004 Italian GP one, it is ridiculous. It looks like a giant policeman’s baton.6th October 2013, 11:53 at 11:53 am #242789Lucas WilsonParticipant
Beat has to be the Sonic the Hedgehog trophy, Ron dennis’ pride and joy.6th October 2013, 11:57 at 11:57 am #2427906th October 2013, 12:33 at 12:33 pm #2427916th October 2013, 18:16 at 6:16 pm #242792GeorgeParticipant
bwahahaha that’s so out of place!6th October 2013, 20:53 at 8:53 pm #242793
Wow, now THAT is a bad trophy! I saw a picture of that while doing Google searches for trophies, and I though it was a joke or a photoshop job. What race was that from?7th October 2013, 4:19 at 4:19 am #242794
1993 European GP. There is a video on the site that pic came from of the podium ceremony, it looked like Senna was given that one to hold up to fulfill the organisers obligation to sponsors Sega, but he was then given a more traditional looking trophy which I think was the “real” one.7th October 2013, 4:44 at 4:44 am #242795Fisha695Participant
That one from Hungary this year looks like something you would put a dead persons ashes in haha.
I think F1 needs to spice it up with some unique trophies like these.
