Lewis Hamilton's 2017 F1 Replica Race Helmet
Lewis Hamilton's replica helmet has a yellow base colour with red, green and blue highlights. It is personalised with the driver's number and logo. There are three red stars on each side of the helmet for each F1 Driver World Championship Lewis has won.
Interestingly, despite their being made of cutting-edge, full carbon fibre material, the helmets are still painted by hand, a painstaking job taking about twenty hours. This auction will support Laureus Sport for Good's work in Mexico.
Laureus Sport for Good supports more than 160 community programs in over 40 countries, helping to address the many social challenges facing children and young people around the world.
Founded in response to Nelson Mandela's challenge, issued at the first Laureus World Sports Awards in Monaco in 2000, that "Sport has the power to change the world", our vision is to use sport as a powerful and cost-effective tool to help children and young people overcome violence, discrimination and disadvantage in their lives.
