As well as his race-winning performance on the track, he is also well known for using a different helmet design for every race.

Commenting on the competition, Sebastian Vettel said: “The helmets I wear are very important to me, as each one has a special meaning or a connection with the race in question. Normally I work closely with my helmet designer to come up with a new design for every other race, and this is the first time I’ve given the fans the chance to do it for me. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!”
