Michael Schumacher: Sebastian Vettel pays tribute to F1 legend with special helmet for Australian Grand Prix
Reigning World Champion pays tribute to his idol
Friday 14 March 2014
Sebastian Vettel will race in the Formula One season opener in Australia with a helmet that features a tribute to Michael Schumacher.
The reigning world champion's helmet for this weekend's Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne, has a stylized version of Schumacher's signature just below the visor.
The seven-time world champion remains in an artificially induced coma following a skiing accident in December.
Vettel is not the only driver set to race with a Schumacher tribute, Felipe Massa, his former teammate at Ferrari will race with the letters M and S on top of his helmet as well.
Despite a difficult pre-season, Vettel has enjoyed a reasonably encouraging start to practice in Australia, finishing the day fourth fastest.
