World Champ Needs Help: Helmet Design Contest!
Three time world champion Lewis Hamilton is offering you a chance to submit your ideas for his helmet design for 2017! The contest closes on February 6th, so good luck! Here's the link: Helmet Design

For professionals like Lewis, their helmet is the one part of them that we can see during a race, so it's important to have a unique design or color that even the TV cameras and the fans in the stands can notice. Unlike NASCAR, the Formula 1 drivers race number is generally not such a big deal, and the idea of one driver keeping the same number for their career is still a new idea.
