The Brazilian GP trophies will have a special stone...

Petrobras, the national fuel company and title sponsor of next weekend’s Brazilian Grand Prix, has come up with a unique design concept for the trophies it will award to the top-three finishers at the Sao Paulo event.

Each trophy will have a rock – estimated to be over 120 million years old – lifted from the bottom of the sea at a depth of some 5,000 metres below sea level.

Designed by trophy sculptor Paulo Soláriz (pictured), the prizes were unveiled this week ahead of the season-ending Grand Prix., with the initiative being part of Petrobras’ “From the Bottom of the Sea to the Top of the Podium – The World’s most Valuable Trophy” campaign.
