Jenson Button wearing special helmet in Abu Dhabi

Published on 25 Nov 2016 16:34

Jenson Button is sporting a special helmet design for his final Grand Prix this weekend.

The design is the same as his regular one but features the slogan "The journey is the reward" on either side. It also incorperates a different colour scheme, akin to the one he wore during his championship winning year in 2009.

Additionally, it features a pink stripe around the circumference, in tribute to Button's father, who famously regularly wore a pink shirt in the F1 paddock.

Sebastian Vettel is also wearing a slightly altered helmet this weekend, with the white of his typically simple helmet being replaced by "hologram, flake and chrome [that] is meant to create an effect both in sunlight as well as under artificial light."

That helmet literally screams of Button. I like it! Will definitely miss seeing him race, he is hands down my favourite driver.
