A special delivery had some staff pretty excited yesterday – you need to be into Formula One racing though!
Exhibition principal partner Shell V-Power has secured exclusive Ferrari polo shirts signed by legends of F1 racing, Michael Schumacher, Felipe Massa, and Kimi Räikkönen. We are giving them away to luckyFormula One™ – The Great Design Race exhibition visitors!
The shirts were signed by the drivers at this year’s Hungarian Grand Prix in late July. Regrettably, this race was overshadowed by Massa’s terrible accident during the qualifying lap that left him with a fractured skull. Massa’s teammate Kimi Räikkönen, the 2007 world champion, placed second in the race getting Ferrari’s best placing in the season at that time.
Massa’s untimely departure from the Ferrari team led to Schumacher contemplating leaving retirement to race for Ferrari but this was not to be. A neck injury sustained earlier in the year during a German Superbike test left him unfit for F1.
For the F1 enthusiast, these shirts will be like gold! Further details about the giveaway are on our website – I can’t give you any more information just yet, but clues will be posted to Te Papa’s facebook page, on our Twitter feed, and our website and blog. Good luck!
