BEHIND THE ART
The 1969 Italian Grand Prix at the ‘Temple of Speed’ Monza is a breathtaking example of tight finishes as eight cars swapped positions in the closing laps, re-created in the Fine Art as Jackie Stewart won in the Matra-Ford to clinch the first of his three world championship titles.
Depicted here the closest 1-2-3-4 finish in Formula 1 history. At the flag, Jackie Stewart, Jochen Rindt, Jean-Pierre Beltoise and Bruce McLaren were separated by just nineteen hundredths of a second, an incredible spectacle and, at the time, the closest ever F1 finish.
Sir Jackie Stewart and Matra-Ford claimed both the Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ titles, with three races of the season still remaining.
Automobilist has faithfully recreated this historic scene in meticulous detail to produce a unique artwork in its signature manner that blends 3D models and digital photography to achieve a computer-generated image of awe-inspiring quality. The process took the team of specialist artists, technicians and designers several months.
