DOHA: Lusail International Circuit partnered with Pininfarina, an Italian design and architectural firm renowned for its iconic works in the automobile industry, to create the official trophy for Qatar Grand Prix.
The trophy for the FORMULA 1 QATAR AIRWAYS QATAR GRAND PRIX 2023 is a fusion of speed, culture, and craftsmanship.
Pininfarina took inspiration from the dynamism of FORMULA 1, crafting a trophy that captures the heart of the recently remodeled Lusail International Circuit (LIC).
The development and production process of the trophy was executed through a three-month collaborative effort between Pininfarina and LIC.
The project enlisted the help of artisans with first-hand experience in hand-crafting expertly crafted wave-like patterns that pay homage to Qatar’s sand dunes with a deep-purple resin plaque with a geometric style representing the traditional Sadu carpet, adding depth and a vibrant touch.
The satin aluminum finish enhances the trophy’s elegance, mirroring Pininfarina’s signature style. The combination of such elements celebrate Qatari culture and Lusail’s identity as a motorsports hub.
