It’s safe to say that everyone could tell which Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 driver was Lewis Hamilton.
Lewis Hamilton isn’t just a force to be reckoned with on the Formula 1 circuit, racking up championships with exceptional skill; he’s also a style icon who turns heads in the fashion world. With an eye for style that’s as sharp as his racing talents, Lewis has opened himself up to creative collaborations with brands and artists that share the same vision. Being a fan of his art and the superrealism style he portrays, Lewis Hamilton recently worked closely with Japanese illustrator Hajime Sorayama on a 1-of-1 racing helmet for the Japanese Grand Prix that took place this past weekend.
The Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 helmet features a head-turning polished chrome livery, deriving inspiration from Lewis Hamilton’s +44 clothing line and passion project. The futuristic look and feel resemble Sorayama’s past creations, whether it be a highly-detailed canvas painting or a breathtaking sculpture. The design comes complete with matching sponsor decals that almost blend and disappear behind its bold chrome base. Although Lewis Hamiton and the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 team crossed the finish line in Japan in the fifth position, his Hajime Sorayama collaboration helmet definitely stood out amongst all the competitors and race fans in attendance on Sunday.
