Crossing The Line, Raising The Bar - Artwork

One fateful day in Suzuka, the dreams of millions came true. A Scuderia Ferrari driver finally clinched the driver's championship after two barren decades for Formula 1’s most iconic team. Behind the wheel was the man who would go on to become the greatest F1 driver of all time: Michael Schumacher.

Michael brought the title home in his Rosso Corsa Ferrari F1-2000, sweeping his rivals aside and bringing joy to Tifosi worldwide. In crossing the finish line of the demanding Japanese circuit he not only marked the first Ferrari triumph since Jody Scheckter's 1979 championship, but also won the first in an unprecedented record of five championships in a row – a new F1 monument.

Celebrating this extraordinary accomplishment and honouring Michael Schumacher’s 50th birthday, Automobilist has created a unique artwork that faithfully depicts this historic finish-line scene from a new perspective using our signature state-of-the-art techniques of composing 3D models and digital photography – and for the first time 3D scanning – to create an image of perfect quality with awe-inspiring detail. It took our team of specialist artists, technicians and designers several months to complete.

By owning this bold reminder of a historical F1 moment in the form of a strictly limited collectors’ fine art print, you will also be donating to Keep Fighting Foundation, a non-profit organisation founded by Michael Schumacher's family, life-long friends and colleagues.

behind the scene

How its done

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.

Once the concept is established, we set to work creating a 3D model using CGI. Studying every piece of reference material available, our artists essentially build a car from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer of detail – even down to the correct number of coats of paint.
