Current World Champion Sebastian Vettel wore a specially designed helmet on at the 2013 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Vettel personally selected the design from almost 1,500 entries from across the world as part of a design contest by Infiniti across its InfinitiGP social media channels. Infiniti invited fans to illustrate Sebastian’s passion and performance in their works of art. Vettel chose the design by Jake Vite Prekop, 21, a Mexican student.
“Cars have always played an important part of my life since it is my family’s main business,” Prekop remarked. He said that he knows that Vettel "always wears the most exotic and well-designed helmets," so he combined the colors of Infiniti Red Bull Racing, the German flag and included "the element of speed and the heat of the track in the design.“
The student added he is honored that Vettel has chosen his design and will wear it during the GP weekend. As part of the prize, Prekop and a companion were flown to the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. They will spend the weekend in Paddock Club and will get a tour of the Infiniti Red Bull Racing garage and meet Vettel in person. [source: Infiniti]
