THE ART OF FORMULA 1 | SAKHIR, BAHRAIN | WITH ARTIST, MATTEO DE LONGIS

2020 - COVER ART FOR SCUDERIA FERRARI

2020 - COVER ART FOR SCUDERIA FERRARI

Scuderia Ferrari introduces, cover artist, Matteo De Longis

Las Vegas 2049? Sydney, Australia 2009? Bahrain 2020? This cover's colors show a Villeneuve-esque dust filtered futuristic world. Could this be a representation of Bahrain itself or a draw back to remind us of Ferrari's "We Race" comics? Could this be our world today seen through the eyes of many who can no longer recognize a reality due to the abandonment of normalcy? #5 Sebastian Vettel races toward us as we not only see the background cityscape of Sakhir but also the foreground of the circuit through the reflection in his visor, almost giving this cover a 360 degree view of the past and future.
