Lewis Hamilton 2020 Testing Helmet Poster
£16.99 – £22.49
This design is a slight adaptation from ones he has used since 2014, but with a brand new colour scheme, showing off hs 6 World Championships with the 6 stars. The Mercedes driver also included one of his phrases ‘Still I Rise’ on the rear of his helmet, one of his more famous quotes and well used hashtags on social media. His move to a purple colour pallete is a welcome change for his 2020 design, making it more unique in a grid of fresh helmet designs.
This high quality poster is printed at 9600 x 2400 dpi on 240gsm paper with a glossy or satin finish and is delivered UNFRAMED.
Hamilton used this helmet during testing for the 2020 season. Initially intended to be his helmet for the entire 2020 season, he changed the design slightly to reflect the change needed in the sport to stand against racism and promote diversity. He changed the base colour to black and the phrase on the back to 'Still We Rise'.
The 2020 season had a delayed start after the COVID-19 outbreak caused all large gatherings to be cancelled. The decison was made during the Australian GP weekend to cancel the event and delay the start of the season until it was safe for everyone involved. This meant a significantly adapted race calendar and many tracks that were not able to host a race. The season restarted in July in Austria with a double header and incredibly detailed safety precautions for everyone involved in a race weekend. F1 also called for no fans to be at race events, to reduce the health risk. Many of the big screens at tracks have now been repurposed as 'fan cams' where fans can send in their videos of reactions to the race.
