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.
