Lando Norris ran a helmet design competition for his home race and has chosen a six-year-old's brilliantly cute design as the winner
Whenever a driver runs some sort of helmet design competition or uses a one-off design for a race, the result is usually some immaculate piece of art done by a professional graphic designer. The subject is usually some twist on an existing design themed to the specific race weekend, or a nod to some kind of landmark.
Lando has seen things differently.
He ran a contest to come up with a helmet design for his home race this weekend and has chosen a winner that’s arguably far more impactful than the usual result: that of six-year-old Eva. Just look at how amazing this is.
Not only does it stand out and look different, but just imagine what that’s going to mean to Eva - not just now, but when she grows up. Her drawing has actually been made into a helmet design for a Formula 1 driver. How cool is that!?
