This year’s competition, fought across twenty race is sure to bring plenty of high octane thrills and spills along the way. Of course, its not just about winning the race, its about looking ice-cool on the podium after as well! So, ahead of the new F1 season, we take a pit-stop to look at some of the best eyewear on display at last year’s championship.

The best eyewear on display at Australia Formula 1 Grad Prix

Lewis Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton returns this year to defend his title, and starts as one of the favourites for the 2015 championship. Arguably the biggest name in F1, Lewis Hamilton’s appeal reaches way beyond just racing fans.

I’d have confidence that I could get the job done

He is an ambassador for all kinds of major brands, from cars to watches, and is the highest paid British athlete currently active. He is also well known for staying in pole position in the style stakes too. Here Lewis Hamilton wears Hugo Boss 0002 sunglasses, one of the numerous brands he has endorsed, as well as some RetroSuperFuture Flat Top Sunglasses. Super Sunglasses are one of the hottest brands around right now. Lewis Hamilton wears them as part of a casual look, showing how versatile Super Sunglasses can be.

Jenson Button

Jenson Button is another British racer who has enjoyed major success in the last few years, finishing second in the 2011 drivers championship.

I reckon some teams and drivers will make mistakes in quali during the next few races, but I think we’re well prepared.

His Sunglasses style is also a surefire winner, or at least, a podium finish. To the left he is wearing some classic Ray-Ban Wayfarer Sunglasses and next some dapper Oliver Peoples sunglasses.

Sebastien Vettel

Four time F1 Champion Sebastian Vettel will be looking to get his campaign off to a flying start in Melbourne this weekend. Winner in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013, Vettel has drawn comparisons with fellow countryman Michael Schumacher as a racer who could dominate the sport for years to come. He came up short last year, but has every chance of reclaiming his crown this time.

The sun came out after practice, but earlier on it was raining every now and then which was enough to wet the track or parts of it. For sure these conditions are not ideal, but in the end what can we do? It is the same for everyone. Still, I don’t think that the day was completely lost: it was good to get at least some laps and to feel the car, but in terms of preparation for the weekend and the race there was not too much to learn.

In the first photo, Vettel is wearing some cool Oakley Mirrored Sunglasses with Iridium coating. In the second photo he wears some classic Oakley Frogskins, perfect for that casual, track-side look.

Fernando Alonso

MacLaren’s Fernando Alonso is another big race performer who also uses Oakley Sunglasses to stay ahead of the curb.

It’s nice to be back here in Melbourne: sometimes, when you come away from testing and go to a different circuit, you receive a pleasant surprise… or an unpleasant surprise. Well, today, we received a pleasant surprise.

In the first photo he wears some iconic Oakley Holbrook sunglasses with purple tinted lenses. Next he wears Oakley mirrored sunglasses, this time the trademark Iridium coating giving them the unique orange colour.
