Lewis Hamilton 2020 Helmet Poster
£16.99 – £22.49
After the delayed start of the 2020 F1 season Lewis Hamilton came out with his adjusted helmet design. He used black as the base colour, and on the back has ‘Still We Rise’, to highlight the inequalities shown within the sport that he loves and his support for the Black Lives Matter movement. He has his usual stars – 6 now – to represent all the World Drivers Championships that he has won during his very successful career. The Mercedes F1 Team showed their support for the cause by changing their classic silver arrows livery to a prodominantly black one.
This high quality poster is printed at 9600 x 2400 dpi on 240gsm paper with a glossy or satin finish and is delivered UNFRAMED.
Lewis Hamilton MBE is a British racing driver currently competing in Formula One for the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Formula One Team. A six-time Formula One World Champion, he is widely regarded as one of the greatest drivers in the history of the sport, and considered by some to be the greatest of all time. He won his first World Drivers' Championship with McLaren in 2008, before moving to Mercedes in 2013, with whom he has won a further five titles. One of the most successful drivers in the history of the sport, Hamilton's six World Championship titles is the second-most of all time, as is his tally of 89 race victories, while he holds the records for the all-time most career points (3588), the all-time most pole positions (93), the all-time most podium finishes (157), the most grand slams in a season (3) and the most points in a season (413).
Hamilton has been credited with furthering Formula One's global following by appealing to a broader audience outside the sport, in part due to his high-profile lifestyle and other ventures, including his environmental and social activism as well as his exploits in music and fashion. Hamilton has been targeted by racist abuse throughout his career, and has been outspoken in his criticism of racial politics in Formula One as well as calling for greater diversity in the sport. His treatment by British newspapers has also been criticised for carrying racial bias, and some have pointed to Hamilton's race and physical appearance as reasons behind his perceived unpopularity among a portion of motorsport fans.
