Norris to run British GP helmet designed by a six-year-old
Lando Norris will race at this weekend's British Grand Prix with a special helmet designed by a six-year-old after running a competition for fans.
The hand-drawn design by Eva Muttram was personally selected by Norris as the winning entry, with the McLaren driver saying it reminded him of a younger version of himself.
"Eva was the winner, six years old, who came up with a very original design, one that really brought me back to when I was five, six, seven, growing up, creating all of my own designs, my own helmets with just normal colouring pencils and pens, nothing to do with photoshop or anything like that," explained Norris.
"It brought back some cool memories, and I announced she was the winner today. [It is] Just something different, something cool and it seems to be going down pretty good, so I'm pretty happy with what I did."
My helmet design for this weekend! THANK YOU EVA! Eva’s 6 and she created this for my design competition and it just reminded me a lot of when I was younger scribbling away coming up with some cool things, it’s just super original. Thanks for taking your time design it Eva ✊ pic.twitter.com/YAZoeJ1nqR
