Romain Grosjean unveils Nicky Hayden tribute helmet for US GP

Romain Grosjean has unveiled a Nicky Hayden tribute helmet which the Haas driver will wear during the United States Grand Prix in October.

The 2006 MotoGP champion passed away in May, five days after he was hit by a car while cycling in Italy, as a result of a traumatic brain injury.

In tribute to the late American rider, Grosjean has had a custom helmet designed, which features Hayden's '69' race number and his nickname 'Kentucky Kid'.

Drivers are permitted one helmet design change per season, which many drivers save for their home race or the Monaco GP.
