Formula 1 Star Lando Norris WIll Rock A Helmet Designed By A Six-Year-Old Girl
Norris held a special competition in the build-up to his home grand prix at Silverstone, inviting his fans to design his helmet for the weekend. The winning entry came courtesy of six-year-old Eva Muttram, whose father submitted a hand-coloured design on her behalf that was picked by Norris for Silverstone.
“It reminds me a lot of when I was younger, designing helmets, drawing away, just when I was like five, six, seven years old, printing off hundreds of helmet designs, colouring them in and doing whatever,” Norris explained on a Twitch stream revealing the helmet.
“This is the winner. It’s very different to what I’m used to. 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.”
The design features a number of Norris’ personal logos in the McLaren team colours of orange and blue, and two red love hearts. Norris’ name is written in full on the side of the helmet – with the final letter in his surname dropping onto a third line.
The helmet also has a hand-drawn orange and blue McLaren on the rear of the car, which Norris joked “is what our car looks like this weekend with the new upgrade.”
“I love it. It’s a lot of white, but at the same time, I just think it’s really cute,” Norris said. “I like the colours, and it’s very original. Thank you very much Eva.”
