Also known as 'legality plank', skid block is the mandatory attachment to the underside of a Formula One™ car. Introduced in 1994 as a safety improvement following Ayrton Senna's death, the plank is fitted beneath the central plane of the car. It is designed to restrict the minimum height and prevent taking corners at dangerously high speeds.
Retired from racing, our design team have re-styled the skid block into a practical holder for your tablet. Smooth to touch and a good weight to safely support your gadgets.
The natural colours of the skid block are complemented with black acrylic pieces to support your tablet at the perfect angle for reading, watching, charging, or simply for stylish storage. The finishing touch is the official Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team logo plaque.
The skid block was part of the MGP-W05 car, raced by Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg in the 2014 season. This piece comes complete with an authentic hologram.
