McLaren'sLando Norris will race at the British Grand Prix in a crash helmet designed by a 6-year-old fan.
Norris is no stranger to changing the design of his helmet as a year ago he took part in the Italian Grand Prix with a replica of the one used by MotoGP superstar Valentino Rossi.
"Eva was the victor, six years old, who came up with a very original design, one that really brought me back to when I was five, six, seven, growing up, creating all of my own designs, my own helmets with just normal colouring pencils and pens, nothing to do with photoshop or anything like that", explained Norris.
"This is the victor. All this glitz and glamour and sparkly bits and swooshes and cool stuff, I just went with something that reminded me of me when I was young". Ahead of the race this weekend, he revealed the design, which featured his name scribbled across both sides of otherwise blank canvas in blue and orange, the colours of McLaren.
Norris unveiled the victor on his Twitch channel, naming Eva Muttram who had her entry submitted on behalf of her father.
Ahead of the Thursday media sessions, Norris unveiled the new design on his Twitch channel.
"I love it. It's a lot of white, but at the same time, I just think it's really cute", Norris said. "Thank you very much Eva".
Lando has always been one to rock the boat a little with his helmets, using designs that you might not often see other drivers donning, such as the one he used in the Mexican GP in 2019. "It wasn't that I couldn't drive, it was just something I was a bit more hesitant about thinking what happens if it does come up in the race?"
Back in March, Norris launched a competition where fans could submit their own helmet designs - with the chosen victor being the McLaren driver's helmet for this weekend.
Speaking before the season, Norris stated his intention to race with a different helmet design at every race.
"Thanks for taking your time design it Eva, I'll be wearing it all weekend and thanks to everyone else who sent in their design as well".
