Jens Munser teases Sebastian Vettel’s stunning Singapore helmet

Sebastian Vettel is about to contest his final Singapore and Japanese Grand Prix in the next two weeks.

Formula 1 helmet designer, Jens Munser, has posted a sneak peak of Sebastian Vettel’s crash helmet at this year’s Singapore Grand Prix.

Over the years, Vettel has become known for his beautiful helmet designs, from sparkly numbers worn during night races, to a message of solidarity with Ukraine this year.

The German’s creativity was somewhat scuppered between 2014 and last year, with the FIA ruling that drivers could only wear a special design once a season.

Generally, the four-time champion has worn a predominantly white helmet in recent years, with the German stripes running along one side.

In his Red Bull days, a great many designs graced the purple car, including a pristine white, navy blue, crimson red and smart black.

F1 is returning to Singapore this weekend for the first race there since the 2019 season, with the last two being called off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Japan will follow a week later, and Vettel will almost certainly have something lined up for his final race at Suzuka, which is his favourite racetrack.

The 35-year-old’s last win came at the last race under the lights at the Marina Bay Street Circuit, and it was his fifth win there, having taken his first in 2011.

The 2019 success was one of 14 race wins in total with the Scuderia, and some red is set to appear on his lid this weekend, going by a post on Munser’s story.

The designer, who has made so many delightful pieces of helmet artwork for the now Aston Martin driver, also posted some of his earlier work on his story.

The pictures were from Vettel’s first race in Singapore with Toro Rosso in 2008 – which was also the first-ever race held there – and from the 2019 event with Ferrari.

Vettel’s full helmet design for this weekend is yet to be revealed, but there will be an eager anticipation as to what artwork he will be donning in Singapore.
