Valtteri Bottas launches 2018 helmet design competition

Valtteri Bottas and Mercedes have launched a competition for a fan to design his 2018 helmet, which will be used at the "majority" of races on the record-equalling 21-race calendar.

The Finnish driver regularly uses a mainly black and white helmet featuring his race number #77 on the back, but has called on fans to submit their own designs with no guidance on colour or style.

The winning design will be personally chosen by Bottas after the closing date of January 12.

The competition follows team-mate Lewis Hamilton's own last year in which he received more than 8,000 submissions and picked this design.

More information on Bottas' helmet competition can be found here.
