Number one for fun

He's the man of the moment and everyone will want a piece of him this weekend. But you can have your own piece of world champion Sebastian Vettel. Well, his car to be precise, with this Red Bull Racing RB7 remote control car. It's a 1:18 scale model and is an official product of the Red Bull team, with all the livery and detail of the real deal.

Find it and all of the three products in this week's go gear online at f1store.formula1.com. Dh150.

 

One to watch

OK, so he's not won the world championship since 2006, but Spanish F1 racer Fernando Alonso is that much of a star he's even got his own range of watches: the Fernando Alonso Viceroy Collection. And this special edition black chronograph bracelet watch is the pick of the bunch. It has a stainless steel case and rubber strap to give it a genuine racey feel and it features Alonso's FA logo and luminescent hands. Dh1,520.

 

Mechanic chic

There's something quite cool about the F1 mechanics and engineers who have a multitude of monitors and technology in front of them and with their headsets and team-branded clothing; they represent the nerve centre of the racing action. So it's also quite cool that you can replicate their look with this Mercedes GP Petronas team shirt. It's a slim fit shirt but with a stretch fibre; good news for the tubby types. Headset not included. Dh650.
