Hey Helmet Heroes!
Yeah, I'm talkin' to you, the I-love-to-design-racer-helmets-person! Formula 1 driver Valtteri Bottas of the Mercedes team wants to see YOUR designs for HIS helmet. If he likes yours, he'll race with it this year, and you're likely to win some very cool stuff for helping him out. In case you aren't familiar with the Finnish driver in the number 77 car (just like the NMS FIAT), Bottas finished (see what I did there, Finland, Finnish, Finished?) in 3rd in last year's championship, so given a few breaks that go his way, your design for his helmet could end up being worn by the 2018 WORLD CHAMPION!
Current world champion Lewis Hamilton has done this in the past, so maybe this helmet design idea makes the car go faster! For all the info on how to design Valtteri's helmet for 2018, (since you have to enter by January 12th), check out the link at the Mercedes website: Helmet Design
