Fans given chance to design Bottas’ helmet

Date published: January 3 2018 - Editor

Mercedes have revealed a new competition that will see Valtteri Bottas wear a fan-designed helmet throughout the 2018 season.

The Silver Arrows ran a similar competition with Lewis Hamilton last year and now it is the Finn's turn to pick the winning design and use it as his primary lid for the season ahead. The winning entrant will also receive a signed replica copy of the helmet.

The deadline will close on January 12 and all fans have to do is download the template and get creative. Mercedes are also allowing multiple entires.

You can enter the competition here and, if last year's timeline is followed, the winning design will be revealed on February 22 ahead of Mercedes launching their 2018 car on the following day.
