Being Formula 1 world champion gives you a series of privileges, such as putting the #1 number on the nose of your car or making a golden helmet to celebrate the achievement of the title. This is what Max Verstappen has done, who, surprisingly after not doing it in the United States, presented a special design for the Mexican Grand Prix on the occasion of his two-time championship in the highest category of motorsport.
The Dutchman decided to add a color reserved for the most successful in racing, and combined it with his usual white tone on the sides, in addition to the Red Bull logo in red and the inscription that highlights his status as ‘World Champion’ on the rear of the helmet.
“Hello everyone, finally the reveal of the helmet of the year. It’s a very special one, so here we go,” said the Dutchman before opening the case where he kept this collector’s item. “It’s got more gold because I’ve won the championship and of course because the team has too.”
“For the rest of the season I will wear this helmet, which is basically a gold design that makes it very special. With the white it seems to be very good, it has been special for me, and also for everyone who has won with the team this year. “.
“I hope you like it, because it’s something to remember, of course,” explained the current Formula 1 world champion, who is now looking to break the record for victories in a season, which he will achieve if he once again climbs to the top of the podium , because he is tied with Sebastian Vettel and Michael Schumacher with 13.
Max Verstappen has kept all the elements that characterize him, with his personal and general sponsors from his team, but he has also wanted to add two stars on the back to show off his two world titles won in consecutive years. Now, the Dutchman will seek to expand his record with the three-time championship, but for this he will have to face the sanction that the FIA has imposed on his group for exceeding the budget limit last year, when they fought face to face against Mercedes and Lewis Hamilton.
