2019 Formula 1 (F1) car - 42096 B Model

  • Steering in Ackerman geometry with working steering wheel
  • 4 wheel independent suspension.
  • Tiltable engine cover
  • Working fake engine


  • Length 59.5 cm (23.4 inches)

  • Height 13.5 cm (5.3 inches)
  • Weight 1.09 kg (2.4 lb)


The professional building instructions consisting of 333 steps in 204 pages are created with Bricklink Stud.io 2.0, here is an example of how the instructions look like:

I have spent a couple of 100's of hours on the design of the model and an additional +100 hours in creating the instructions. Hence, if you purchase the instructions I kindly request you not to share them. The set price is low so anybody that would like to build this model can afford to buy the instructions. Thank you.


Bonus model

This model is designed solely with bricks available in the 42096-1 Porsche 911 RSR set but is prepared to be easily motorized. Additional bonus instructions for motorization consisting of 31 steps in 31 pages are included at the end of the instructions document.
The motorized model weight is 1.33 kg (2.9 lb) and is geared up 3:1 so it is quite fast! The following additional parts are required for the motorization:

  1. Two  36 tooth gears
  2. 2 XL motors
  3. 1 servo motor
  4. 2 IR receivers
  5. 1 battery box
  6. 1 remote control

Bonus model functions

  • Remote steering in Ackerman geometry with working steering wheel
  • Remote forward and reverse propulsion
  • 4 wheel independent suspension.
  • Tiltable engine cover
  • Working high RPM fake engine

The motorized model is designed so it is very simple to exchange the batteries without having to disassemble the car as seen on this video.

The inventory includes all parts required regardless of which version you build (with exception of the motorization list above). This means that you will have parts over when building any of the two versions which is nothing to worry about.
