Jan van Haasteren 'Formula 1 - The Start' 1000 pieces

If you're looking for the 1000-piece Jan van Haasteren Puzzle called 'Formula 1- The Start', it's this one:
I made the above puzzle and it has number 19093. This puzzle was published in the year 2019 (sold on September 1, 2019) and the artist is Jan van Haasteren. This puzzle 'Formula 1 – The Start' is also available in another variant, namely:

  • Formula 1 – The Start, 2000 pieces, Jumbo no. 19097, year 2020, artist Jan van Haasteren

This 1000 piece puzzle has a size 68 (width) x 49 (height). I made this puzzle on a puzzle mat that is 1 meter 60 wide and 90 CM high.

UPDATE September 16, 2020: Since F1 is a protected name, it was apparently not allowed to be used just like that. So no new puzzles are created with the name 'Formula 1 – The Start'. All puzzles that are now being released will be called: 'Grand Prix'. The number of this puzzle / box remains the same (19093), only the name has changed. Both versions of this puzzle, 1000 and 2000 pieces, have a different image.

What do you encounter when you have made this Jan van Haasteren jigsaw puzzle?

First off, I made a general 'review' with all sorts of fun things that caught my eye, check them out in the following video:

Also about JvH's jigsaw puzzle 'Formula 1 - The Start'

This puzzle was drawn by JvH because Formula 1 would be held in Zandvoort on May 3, 2020. However, because of the Corona, this race has been postponed, and on May 28 it was announced that the race will be moved to 2021 in Zandvoort anyway. The TT circuit in Assen also wanted this race, but preference was given to the circuit in Zandvoort. The last Grand Prix of the Netherlands was also held at the Zandvoort circuit in 1985. The very first Formula 1 Grand Prix was held in Zandvoort in 1948. From 1948 to 1985, a Grand Prix in Formula 1 was held on the Zandvoort circuit almost every year. Partly due to the great popularity of Max Verstappen, Formula was once again held in the Netherlands in 2020, which has been postponed to 2021.

Jan van Haasteren has brought back various elements from Formula 1, partly in view of the beautiful drawings of the Formula 1 cars. Different build years of race cars run in the same race, ranging from the 60's to fairly recent.

The red Ferrari

By way of explanation: the bright red formula 1 car in the front (see photo above) must most certainly be a Ferrari, because they are always red, that is an Italian car. The pistons are on the track and all four wheels are off.
The rollbar that is off at the Ferrari

Even the nowadays mandatory and also the roll bar (see photo above) Jan has not forgotten. FYI: The roll bar (air inlet) above the car has become much stronger since the accident of Alexander Wurz during the Canadian Grand Prix in 1998 because the FIA ​​demands it. The roll bar is that black 'round' thing on the ground that came over the cockpit to protect the driver in case of an accident.
Blue and white formula 1 car from the time of Niki Lauda

The blue/white formula 1 car – see photo above – (with the dog in the back) clearly dates from the time of Niki Lauda with the large air scoop above the driver's head.

The green race car with number 7 on it (see photo above) is almost a copy of Sir Jack Brabham's race car from the XNUMXs, even the yellow center stripe on the car is very recognizable.
The Safety Car in Formula 1

At the back of the row, at the top left of the puzzle, is the Formula 1 Safety Car (see photo above), the fantastic Mercedes AMG driven by Bernd Mayländer; a professional former Formula 1 driver. The safety car is deployed after serious accidents, in heavy rain or in circumstances where it is not possible to race safely. The Safety Car has been officially used in Formula 1993 races since 1.

I put this puzzle almost entirely alone. Usually my 14 year old daughter doesn't help, but at the end she came to help me lay the air. That was a really tough part! Made it on a puzzle mat, so I could easily move it in between. In this case I indeed had to move it several times instead of rolling it up. Always handy such a puzzle mat!
Here's how I roll up the puzzle into a puzzle mat:

I made it over several days, I almost never get to put a puzzle in its entirety in one go, especially not when I look at the time I'm working on it. I always puzzle at ease; it's not a race against time.

I had bought this puzzle second hand and the seller guaranteed me that the puzzle was complete. We have to assume that (bought by the way for 10 euros – normal price for a second-hand puzzle). I started by explaining all the pieces out of the box. Immediately I sort out the straight pieces for the edges. This is then the result:
And then I started laying the edges:

I went looking for the pieces with the big red letters of the airplane banner first, they were very easy. The yellow plane is also easy. And collect all the pieces of the grandstand with the people. So I put the first beginning of the puzzle – result after 45 minutes (and already matched pieces by color):

The Roadside Assistance car and the Formula 1 cars are also easy and good to make, you sort those pieces by color and there are not many of the same colors, where I then have the result after 2,5 hours of puzzling:
Puzzle-1000-pieces-Jan-van-Haasteren-Formula-1-on-Puzzlemat-after 25-hours

I occasionally keep track of the time and take a picture, but this one is from about 1 hour later, some progress, but no big steps:

The most difficult were all those people who are close to each other (wouldn't be possible now in Corona time - 2020 -!), and even more difficult was the sky with the white clouds. At the end you start puzzling according to the shape of the puzzle pieces, because you can no longer see which piece belongs where based on the color. It's great that my 14-year-old daughters suddenly came to help!

And yes, puzzle finished, quite fun, not very difficult:

Here you again said the puzzle on the puzzle mat with the box:

Jan van Haasteren 'Formula 1 - The Start' 1000 pieces - Recurring elements

There are many in this puzzle recurring elements of Jan van Haasteren. I once tried to put them all on video and photo, and the list can be found below. As you can see, there are a lot of them.

Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Formula 1 - The Start' - recurring element 14: Periscope

The periscope always comes out of the water, so there is always a little water around it:

Jan van Haasteren puzzle 'Formula 1 - The Start' - recurring element 20: Tax Official

How big is the puzzle Jan van Haasteren 'Formula 1 - The Start' 1000 pieces?

This puzzle also has dimensions of 68 (width) by 49 (height). I made the puzzle on a puzzle mat of 1 meter 60 wide and 90 centimeters high.

How long will it take you to complete this 1000 piece puzzle?

I always start by explaining all the pieces out of the box. The time I spent on this is 30 minutes. Then I laid the edges, which took me 25 minutes. So about 1 hour.

I did another 5 hours and 15 minutes on the rest of the puzzle, in the end my daughter of 14 years old helped me for a while, with that very difficult smell. But all in all not really a difficult puzzle, so my total time for this puzzle came to:
6 hours and 15 minutes. Clearly lower than the more difficult JvH puzzles, which often take me about 8 – 9 hours.

About Jumbo puzzles

Jumbo (not to be confused with our supermarket Jumbo!) makes toys, games and puzzles. Jumbo, for example, has made the very well-known games such as “Human don't get annoyed” and “Stratego” and “PimPamPet”. Games that have been around for generations and are still widely played by both young and old. Jumbo has been making and developing toys since about 1900. In the early years of the company, only toys from other countries were imported to the Netherlands. However, since about 1930 it was decided to also make their own toys, at the time manufacturing wooden toys, which was very popular at the time. Almost all toys in those years were made of wood. An important spearhead was that the toys made by Jumbo had to be of very good quality; it had to be as strong as an Elephant. An elephant had to stand on it! The red elephant has been the hallmark of Jumbo's games and puzzles for years. The name Jumbo and the red elephant together form the logo from about 1935. The Jumbo elephant is drawn by Mr. Möhr. He worked at an advertising agency and regularly signed for Hausemann & Hötte. Mr Möhr was at one point commissioned to design a beautiful new elephant logo for the Hausemann & Hötte toys. The logo has changed a bit since then. For example, the eye has grown over the years and has dropped slightly more, resulting in a friendlier elephant.

In the past, the elephant was not only used in the color red, but in all kinds of colors such as blue, yellow, black, white and green. All those colors were cozy and playful. For example, one time there was a yellow elephant on the box and the other time a red one. It was usually looked at which color best matched the color of the box. It was not until the end of the 60s that the red elephant was definitively chosen. Red is a color that stands out and attracts attention.

From 1945 Jumbo also started to focus on games made of cardboard. Jumbo has therefore been a guarantee for strong quality for years! Jumbo is a unique Dutch company with a rich history, with its head office in Zaandam. About 130 employees work for Jumbo. With a turnover of €75 million, Jumbo is a medium-sized European player in toys. Jumbo has sales offices in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the United Kingdom. They export to more than 25 countries around the world.

In 1980 Jumbo starts the production of Jan van Haasteren Puzzles.

Surprisingly nice

I wrote the above review about Jan van Haasteren's Formula 1 puzzle. Not a very difficult puzzle, but if you look closely and search, there are still a lot of surprising and fixed recurring elements. It's also nice that it is current given the Formula 1 that would come to Zandvoort and will come in 2020. 4 stars!
