The Project

The official trophy for Qatar Grand Prix designed by Pininfarina

Lusail International Circuit partnered with Pininfarina to create the official trophy for Qatar Grand Prix. The trophy for the Formula1 Qatar Airways Qatar Grand Prix 2023 is a fusion of speed, culture, and craftsmanship.
This unique trophy will be awarded to the champion of FORMULA 1 QATAR AIRWAYS QATAR GRAND PRIX 2023 against the iconic backdrop of the Lusail International Circuit celebrating the fusion of speed and Qatar’s legacy of motorsports in the region.

The Way

Dynamism and modernity

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 experience in hand-crafting expertly crafted wave[1]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 celebrates Qatari culture and Lusail’s identity as a motorsports hub.

The Idea

A symbol of the contrast between Qatar's culture and modernity

Pininfarina, in collaborazione con Pininfarina Segno, ha impiegato tecnologie all’avanguardia come la stampa laser per realizzare quegli elementi del trofeo che omaggiano il Qatar, mantenendo un design contemporaneo. Il trofeo pesa circa 3,6 kg con un’altezza di 55 cm e conserva alcuni elementi di quello presentato nel Gran Premio del Qatar del 2021, proponendo però una prospettiva distintiva e innovativa sulla crescente cultura dei motorsport in Qatar. Il trofeo vuole essere un simbolo del connubio tra il patrimonio culturale e la modernità del Qatar.
