Those of you who’ve ever been privileged enough to travel to to Spain will know that the country boasts some of the finest art and architecture in the world.
While it may beg the question of what went so horribly wrong when it came to designing the Circuit de Catalunya, that hasn’t stopped the F1 circus from acknowledging Spain’s cultural heritage during last weekend’s Grand Prix visit.
Sauber driver Adrian Sutil donned a one-off mosaic helmet design as a nod to the late Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí, whose own creations can be seen all over Barcelona.
Lotus, meanwhile, paid homage to Spanish Renaissance painter El Greco by promoting the artist’s exhibition currently taking place in the city of Toledo.
The exhibition was occurring to mark 400 years since the painter’s death.
