The Best And The Rest

Lap 55. San Marino Grand Prix. 1988. Ayrton Senna and Alain Prost emphatically power past Nelson Piquet in 3rd place – not for position, but to lap him. At this point, the McLaren drivers had lapped the entire field and it was to set the tone for the rest of the season ahead…

It’s 30 years since the much-loved and truly legendary Ayrton Senna won his first World Championship in a season that saw him rewrite the record books. 1988 was also the same year Senna joined McLaren – a partnership that would become one of history’s finest. But after an unfortunate disqualification in their first race of the season in Brazil, the world would have to wait until round two in San Marino to see the true might of the Senna/McLaren pairing.

Starting in pole position, Senna led from lap one of the race and put in a near perfect performance. His teammate, Prost, didn’t get off to a smooth start, but within just 8 laps had fought back from 6th to 2nd. However, the only car he knew he couldn’t get close to that day, was Senna’s.

Their McLaren MP4/4 – combined with the championship-winning Honda V6 turbo – stands today as one of the most dominant Formula 1 cars ever built. And with still a handful of laps to go at San Marino, it first became evident that all the other teams were going to struggle for quite some time to match the stunning speed and superior downforce it possessed. It was in this moment, as Nelson Piquet – a triple World Championship winner, no less – was passed for the second time, that everyone was able to see the new difference between the best and the rest.

I ordered a series of posters, 2 of which came with an issue. The customer service team were apologetic and quick to respond with a new set, shipped quickly and arrived in great condition. Mistakes happen, but they earned my future business by providing quick, great service.
Wish more companies would emulate their attitudes and customer centricity. Don't hesitate to purchase from them and realize that most people that don't post positive reviews, just negative. The rating on here is severely and undeservedly skewed - pay no mind and buy with confidence.

Magic behind our work

RESEARCH AND CONCEPT

Every image we create is based on a real-life historical event, so to assure accuracy, we put in long hours of research to piece together every little detail.
The Best And The Rest research and concept phase

3D MODELLING AND 3D SCANNING

Once the concept is established, a 3D model is created using computer-generated imagery. Studying every piece of reference material available, Automobilists’ artists, then, digitally rebuild the vehicle from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer with painstaking detail – even down to the last coat of paint.

PHOTOSHOOT

With pre-production complete, it’s time to go on-location and start shooting photographs. This stage can last for several days and involves crews of up to 70 people, depending on the concept. The highest grade of professional equipment is used to ensure the highest quality and resolution images, and extensively detailed sets are also built when required.

PRINT TECHNOLOGY

We only use the very best Epson fine art printers, and premium Hahnemühle paper due to its fine texture, which guarantees long-lasting colour and saturation.
