The Mission

For 2018 and onwards Formula 1's new owner, Liberty Media, has revived the two-seater car programme as part of their F1 Experiences and will have a pair of two-seater cars running at every event. The project is overseen by former Minardi boss Paul Stoddart using the original 1998 Tyrrell 026. Former Jordan, Renault, and Toyota technical director Mike Gascoyne and his MGI Consultancy company were brought onboard to update the original car with a new styling package to resemble the current generation of F1 machinery.

The Delivery

MGI wanted to present images of the car to the media that would help announce their involvement in the project, but they didn't have any images of the car in it's final layout. Our 3D visual expert created and supplied a number of full liveried models in various angles that were used for their press release, along with a 360 degree rotational video of the car, to see how visible the branding would be from all areas of the car. The following images show the development process and expert precision that goes in to creating high-end 3D visuals, from a rendered model using CAD drawings, to a life-like car in a studio setting or on track.
