Tiamemarduk’s love of bright colours
First up is Tiametmarduk, considered by many to be the leading F1 game content creator whose channel is very close to 700,000 subscribers. He does F1 career mode videos, online open lobbies and challenge videos not just on the F1 game but many other types of racing game, it’s the go-to channel for F1 gaming videos.
Daly joined a couple of years ago and it subsequently led to him becoming brand ambassador for . Back when F1 2020 released, he teamed up with McLaren F1 racer and newly signed McLaren Shadow F1 Esports driver to participate in some open lobbies.

WHAT CUSTOMISATION DO YOU CALL THIS?!
So sick that there’s my own branded items that you guys can use IN GAME.
I hope it brings me unlimited corner cutting abilities. #F1 #F12021 pic.twitter.com/9HfqBtdBNL
When players log in to F1 2021 they will automatically unlock Ben’s car livery which features his channel logo, and also the logo of his clothing brand TMDK which is stickerbombed all over the car. Furthermore, there’s another logo bearing his My Team career mode’s team name: Marduk Motorsport.
The car is decked out in a combination of purple, black and gold, Daly credits Lewis Hamilton with the inspiration as Hamilton raced the last few rounds of the 2020 season with a helmet in those colours. The other items of Tiametmarduk’s are the driver suit which unlocks at Tier 7, the gloves unlock at Tier 19 and finally the helmet at Tier 24.
Maxime’s camo inspiration
Next up is Maxime, who we’ve had the pleasure of featuring in many of our videos on our YouTube channel, and who also competed in the OverTake Dream Team Series.
On YouTube, Maxime has just short of 90,000 subscribers which is very impressive considering her videos are primarily in her native Dutch. She earned a strong English speaking following after she joined Veloce and made videos with them.
LET’S GOOO! It’s such an honor to get my own in-game item set on F1 2021 😱— MaximeMXM (@MaximeMXM) March 30, 2022
Thanks for all the support 🥰 Enjoy the MXM inspired items!
Send me a picture when you got them 🔥 pic.twitter.com/AFg7ynNld3
Maxime credits her designs on the pre-season liveries typically used by Red Bull. These lievries serve as a basis for her real life racing helmet, with the designs being mostly red and white with a bit of black worked in.
Starting at Tier 3 is Maxime MXM’s driver suit, her gloves at Tier 9, then there’s a bit of a wait before the next item which is the helmet at Tier 27. Finally at the final tier for earning items – Tier 30 – is Maxime’s livery.
Another FIFA YouTuber
Last on the list of content creators is DjMaRiiO, who may not be that well known outside of Spanish speaking territories but this content creator houses a mighty 7.6 million subscribers. Primarily making videos on FIFA but started out on the likes of Minecraft, GTA and Call of Duty.
Being one of the most popular YouTubers in Spain, no doubt there will be a bunch of Spanish-speaking players keen to get their hands on the items by DjMaRiiO. First up is the livery which is unlocked at Tier 5, the helmet unlocks at Tier 15, gloves at Tier 17 and the driver suit at tier 21.
Outside of the YouTuber-themed items, there are the usual batch of items such as victory radio calls, podium celebration emotes, player emblems and sponsorship decals. A personal favourite of ours is the VIP Tier 28 award, with the emote ‘Brum Brum’ in which the player runs out onto the podium with a wheel in their hand running enthusiastically.
Also, in the most recent update, players can equip the Honda-tribute white Red Bull livery to the My Team car. This livery being added in to the game for a limited time, coming in when Imola was added to F1 2021 before reverting back to the regular season livery with the following patch.
This wasn’t added as an option for the Red Bull car, and hopefully for F1 2022 players will be given the option to toggle between multiple liveries should teams choose to run a few special liveries, such as Alpine running the full BWT pink for the first two races of the 2022 season before reverting to a more traditional blue for the remainder of the year.
