Sebastian Vettel not holding back his creative side with his helmet design

The thing that kicked off the rumors of the German’s helmet design was his designer. Jens Munser Designs hinted that the 33-year-old driver might hold on to his classic design for the upcoming championship.

Vettel’s days at Ferrari saw him adopt the German colors on his helmet, he was also seen wearing one during his seat fitting at the Silverstone-based team but was wearing a pink helmet during his first drive with the new car.

The German will lend a hand to Schumacher

Vettel raced against Michael Schumacher from 2010 to 2012. Now his son Mick Schumacher will make his debut in Formula One. The four-time world champion is happy to give advice to the 21-year-old as still considers his dad an inspiration.

The 33-year-old said, “I will be happy to help, but the way I look at him, I see him as a person. Where I can help him in his life or on track, with some of the things that I went through in my career, I’m happy to help.”

“But I think it’s very important for him to find his own path and follow his own way. As much as it helped as Michael had some things to say when I asked, and gave me advice, I’m trying to do the same to him.” He concluded.

The four-time world champion’s new journey will begin with the British team. He is excited and optimistic ahead of his first season in new colors. The car will have a Mercedes power unit, which gives Vettel hope for his title dreams. Which helmet do you think that Vettel should bring to the 2021 grid?
