Design the Formula 1 world champion a helmet for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Fancy yourself as a bit of an artist, do you? Well, prove it. Doodle up a good enough scribble and your design could adorn the racing helmet of Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel at this year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
Infiniti, sponsors of Vettel’s team, Red Bull Racing, has announced a competition for people in the Middle East to submit ideas for the three-time champ’s skid lid. If you win, not only will your design be professionally applied for the race, but you and a friend will get a super-luxury VIP-style trip to the whole event.
There are some loose rules unfortunately, so writing BYE-BYE MARK on the top of the lid probably won’t wash, especially as Vettel himself will be picking the winner. Which is a shame. But still, it’s a chance for both creativity and immortalisation in racing history, as well as a very nice weekend away.
To be in with a chance, enter the competition at the Infiniti website. But first, read our interview with Sebastian Vettel, featuring questions from crankandpiston readers, conducted at last year’s Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. And then get some tips from his current helmet designer, Jens Munser.
