It was just two weeks ago that Lewis Hamilton offered fans a chance to design his 2017 helmet livery and that number has closed at 8,000 entries.
The three-time F1 world champion took to Instagram to showcase his excitement and announced that the winner will be picked in the days to come.
F1 regulations call for a driver to run the same helmet design for the duration of the season, with a one-off special design at a race of their choosing.
Wow, over 8,000…Thanks for all the helmet designs and putting in so much effort #TeamLH!! 🙏🏽Some really great entries in there. As the competition’s now closed I’m going to be looking through to see the design that I’d like to pick. There’s quite a few entries to go through, so this might take some time but hoping to announce the winner in the next few days. More soon… #LH44Design @mercedesamgf1 @bellhelmetseurope T&C’s: http://lewis.social/TCs
