At the podium ceremony after the Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix, runner-up Lando Norris broke the trophy to winner Max Verstappen. Simon Attila, president of Herend Porcelánmanufaktura, said they would redo the trophy for the Dutchman.
The trophies of the podium finishers were once again made by Herend Porcelánmanufaktúra this year, but they may never have received the same amount of attention because the Verstappen award evaporated shortly after it was received.
Although Verstappen and Norris did not sort out a trophy worth about 15 million forints, it turned out that Verstappen would not only have a broken trophy in his window.
Because Simon Attila, president of Herend Porcelain Manufactory, told M4 Sport that the Dutchman could get a brand new, freshly made award within a few weeks as Verstappen’s Herendi trophy is under renovation.
The teams will decide who is to blame, and we will take on the joyful and heavy burden and repeat.” said the CEO regarding the 19th century oriental-style trophy.
Attila Simon emphasized that they give a lifetime replacement guarantee on all their creations, so copies of the Hungarian Grand Prix cups are also available in the sample store. Frame production has already begun, so the original six-month production process will now be shorter and the two-time Red Bull world champion could take the cup in just a few weeks.
