Hamilton opens helmet design competition
Lewis Hamilton will race with a brand-new helmet livery in 2017 - and he’s invited fans to come up with the design.
“Do you want to design my racing helmet for the upcoming F1 season?” the Mercedes driver wrote on Instagram as he announced the competition.
“I'm on the lookout for a dope new layout that evolves my current theme and features the candy apple red in my existing design. I'll be picking the design that I feel is the most stylish, inspiring, iconic and eye-catching.”
The creator of the winning design will have the chance to meet Hamilton at one of this season’s races where the three-time world champion will present them with a full-size signed replica helmet.
Details of the competition, including a design template, can be found here.
