EXPLAINED: What is a Championship Trophy Photo?

Posted on 01 June, 2022

Available with selected Official Ticket Packages, the Championship Trophy Photo provides F1 Experiences guests with a precious memento of their Formula 1 race weekend.

What are the Formula 1 World Championship trophies?

The stunning silver trophies, engraved with the names of all World Champion drivers and constructors since the advent of the Formula 1 World Championship in 1950, are presented to the winning driver and team during the FIA’s annual prize-giving ceremony at the end of every season. Unlike the trophies awarded on the podium for race victories, the World Championship-winning driver and team don’t get to hold on to these one-of-a-kind trophies. They remain in Formula 1’s possession throughout the year and travel to every race under strict security protocols – look, but don’t touch!
