From time to time Sebastian Vettel and designer Jens Munser let an artist work on the helmet of the quadruple Formula 1 world champion. For the home race at Hockenheim 2018 it is Christoph Niemann from Berlin. The 47-year-old illustrator, artist and author was inspired by the winter tests in Barcelona. As a Formula 1 rookie, he was fascinated by the sound, which he wanted to implement on the helmet. He also found it appealing how man and machine work together on the limit. 

Christoph Niemann: “Apart from the fact that I should include the German colors, I had a free hand. For the fascinating sound of these cars, the circles are at the side. Vettel told me how important it is in his job to concentrate on the essentials. So I started at the back with different stripes that overlap initially, but then become parallel and end up in a red line.”
