A highlight in the 2012 racing season is the exclusive cooperation with new team partner PUMA. The range of Formula 1 team articles covers drivers' and team jackets,T-shirts, caps and other important accessories for visits to the race circuit. At the same time, the green of Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 partner PETRONAS is being introduced into the colour design of many motorsports fan articles.
The best-selling item last year was the Michael Schumacher Formula 1 cap. In 2012 the anthracite-coloured cap, which is also available in a Rosberg variant, features green contrasts on the piping. Other new items include a stylish ballpoint pen with black cap, chrome body and centre ring in Petronas green and a black belt in contrasting silver and green. The metal buckle sports an embossed Mercedes-Benz star.
Three watches from the Motorsports Selection ensure that fans will not miss a second of the racing action: a totally new addition is the three-handed watch with stainless steel case and date display. The green seconds hand is offset particularly effectively against the black face. Two leather straps in white and black with stitching are included. The design of the carbon face and the strap of the limited-edition chronograph watch have been made even more attractive. The sporty Passion watch kicks off the new season unaltered.
The extensive range of sporty and functional clothing includes a men's short-armed polo shirt in black cotton piqué featuring white contrasting sleeve trims and highlights in silver, Petronas green and white. The women's polo shirt in the same material comes in white. Button border and collar band are in Petronas green and the Mercedes-Benz star in the chest area consists of rhinestone. Caps in a matching colour are available for both polo shirts. The clothing range further includes a men's T-shirt featuring a print of a DTM car, a matching new DTM cap with mesh inserts and a men's windcheater.
The current Mercedes-Benz motorsport look with green piping also features on the functional sports bag with washbag and the rucksack with the Airstripes back system for high carrying comfort. Both articles are produced by renowned rucksack specialist Deuter. Also "made by deuter" is the black and white wallet with green piping.
The Mercedes-Benz Motorsports Selection also offers a smart iPhone®case. The black polyester case has a practical lug for pulling out the iPhone®or closing the case and is also provided with a belt loop.
Mercedes motorsports fans will be prepared for all weathers with the silver and green guest umbrella, whose Teflon coating effectively prevents soiling, and with a pair of sunglasses. This unisex model is "made by Rodenstock" and is fitted with polycarbonate lenses offering UV 400 protection. A cushion provides a comfortable seat at the races. The 40 x 40 centimetre cushion can be folded together for transportation purposes and features convenient grips for carrying.
