Bottas Is Running An Awesome Hakkinen Tribute Helmet In Monaco This Weekend

Monaco often sees drivers rolling out special, one-off helmet designs, and Valtteri Bottas has decided to do this weekend with the design of fellow Finn Mika Hakkinen

In Monaco 20 years ago, Hakkinen took his only Monaco victory, leading every lap from pole position and setting the fastest lap to make it a Grand Chelem of a weekend.

It was his fourth win of 1998, the season that saw him become champion for the first time. To pay tribute, Bottas has decided to go with a replica of Hakkinen’s classic helmet design for this weekend - and it looks terrific.
