You can't.

Seriously, try Speedgear: http://speedgear.com
I'm sure they have them although I, myself, am not familiar with the
Ferrari section ;-)

There are F1 shops around England.... "F1 and more....." is the name of the
shop. They sell all kinds of merchandise from any F1 team. Including huge
Ferrari flags with the logo on it, taking up most of the space on it.

Cheers,

Don't get my wrong, i'm a huge Ferrari fan, but flags at F1 races are a pain in
the ass and should be banned.  I can understand the desire of fans of all teams
to show their support in a visual way, but do it with a hat, jacket or
something non obstructive.  

Two of my worst F1 memories were trips to Monza and Hockenheim.  Every time the
red cars would go by the Ascari chicane all I saw was the back of red flags.
I'd come to Monza to see Ferraris, and all I saw were the f*ckin' flags!

At Hockenheim as Berger cruised to victory, all I saw were flags and the smoke
from the flares targeted at Prost (not that I minded that!).

Now, of course, there's a new scourge to add to the flag waving tifosi.  There
are more people toting Finnish flags at races than there are in the whole of
Finland and they all seem to be attached to the severed trunk of some 1,000 ft
tall redwood tree.  At Spa this year there were some yahoos at Stavelot that
had flags of such size that their singluar goal seem to be to blot out the sun.

So, leave your flags as home or use them as a blanket, when the cars go by,
hang them at half mast.

My rant for the day....

FORZA!

They have them, section 8 (i think) of th Ferrari stuff.  There's two of
them, a "medium" for $24 and "large" for $32.  Unfortuanately, they
don't tell you what the actual sizes are beyond that.  If anyone happens
to know, please tell me.

        Cheers!!  I support that view 100%.  Now if we could only get
the JV-ites at Montreal to sit down when what is it that MJF calls
him, "the greatest living Canadian" turns a lap...  Don't get me
wrong, I like the guy, and I cheer my heroes, but NOT EVERY single
lap, regardless of speed or track position.

        My favourite flag moment came during this year's Canadian GP.
About 20 rows up from us was a fellow who was apparently an Alesi (or
perhaps just a Francophile) fan - every time Jean came through the
hairpin (I believe he transferred to Panis after the restarts), he'd
come running down the steps with a huge tricolour in hand and hang it
over the edge of GS 24 and then sprint back up to his seat.  This was
repeated for probably the next 10 or 15 laps - stamina or what?  The
funniest moment though, was when he must have tired of the tricolour
and hung out a checkered flag...  The ushers took a very dim view of
that!

I agree. They look good on TV with all the fans waving their flags but
that is it.

Idiots who put big banners on the fencing are pains as well, in 1994 at
Silverstone these 2 Finish guys came to the front of the stand (at
Copse) and put this massive Finish Flag right in front of me. (I was
only a small lad in 1994 so I could only just see).

Hence all my photos from that year are of nice looking fences with a
Finish flag (if you look real carefully you can see blurred colourful
shapes, they would be the F1 cars!!)

        Speed Motorsports *used* to be a pretty good store until
sometime early last year when they, like nearly everything else in
N.A. got taken over by NASCAR.  I used to drive the 40 minutes to and
from the mall weekly just to drool over the Ferrari hats, shirts, and
jackets.  Not to mention some very nice Mercedes denim shirts, replica
driving suits, great artwork, die-cast miniatures, and videos.
However, I can't seem to bring myself to step inside when I walk past
and see "Bite me Ford Boy" and Dale Earnhardt T-shirts on display...

        I'd recommend sticking to Speedzone, or try a couple of the F1
stores in Toronto and Montreal.
