A new LEGO Technic Formula 1 car is set to hit the road in 2022 – but will it be licensed and if so, which racing team will it be based on?
Those are the immediate questions arising from the recent rumors from Promobricks reporting that set number 41241 will be a 1,431 Formula 1 car and will sell for € 179.99. The details behind the set are still unknown at this point, including whether the car will be tied to a specific make.
However, some kind of license seems very likely, as the LEGO Group has already entered into partnerships with Ferrari and Mercedes – two of the most popular F1 teams currently – including 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE AF Corse, on the subject of Speed Champions and actually on current Technic sets # 51 and 42129 4 × 4 Mercedes-Benz Zetros Trial Truck.
The last major Technic Formula 1 car, however, was the generic 42,000 Grand Prix Racer from 2013, which had no connection with any real racing brands. Likewise the 8458 Silver Champion from 2000, although the early 00s also brought us two mostly technically licensed Formula 1 cars under the theme of Racers in the 8461 Williams F1 Team Racer and 8386 Ferrari F1 Racer 1:10.
So this rumored set could really go either way – if it’s even legitimate. For now, every word about a new LEGO Technic Formula 1 car should be taken lightly until the LEGO Group confirms otherwise. According to Promobricks, 42141 is slated to be released on March 1, 2022, so we can wait a while to find out for sure.
