Red Bull also announced it was to release more racing memorabilia in the future, including more limited edition pieces and one-off collectables.
Additionally, the team will be giving away digital collectables featuring Perez’ race suit.
Christian Horner, Red Bull Racing CEO, spoke of his excitement at the upcoming collection.
“Red Bull Racing has always been at the forefront of innovation and technology, both on and off track,” he said.
“We’re really excited to be able to give fans a new, immersive and fun opportunity to get even closer to the team by owning part of our history.”
The NFT collection is due to be the first of many in Tezos’ partnership with Red Bull, which was formed due to the energy-efficient nature of the blockchain.
Cryptocurrencies have now become a stalwart in motorsports sponsorships for many other blockchains including Fantom and Avalanche.
