This table is made from genuine, race-used Force India 2017 Front Wheel Rim as raced on the team's most successful car yet - the VJM10, which achieved 4th place in the 2017 FIA Formula One™ Constructors' Championship. Sold as a piece of team heritage under official licence by SportPesa Racing Point.
These wheel rims were race around the Formula 1 tracks of the world by Sergio Perez and Esteban Ocon in the 2017 FIA Formula One™ World Championship. Manufactured by Force India`s technical partner - Apt Tech to the new 2017 wheel rim specifications. The FIA Formula One regulations were changed in 2017 to increase the width of the front and rear tyres by 25 per cent for faster lap times and improved traction. The width of the front tyres increased from 245mm to 305mm, while the rears widened from 325mm to 405mm.
These race-used rim's are in their 'raw' race-used condition for added interest. They include their original, engraved unique component ID numbers, the original air pressure studs and, in some cases even the mechanics' scribbles! Retired from the race track, the rims are fitted with a toughened glass top to transform them into perfect drinks tables!

Typically made out of aluminium (although sometimes magnesium), wheel rims are an underrated piece of tech in Formula 1. Not only is their spoke pattern important to the distribution of hot air out of the hub assembly, their inner face plays an important role in breaking up turbulence created by high speed rotation. Over the past few years’ teams have taken rim development to a new level, including the use dimples and heat absorbing coatings to help tyre temperature management.
