Hamilton to wear Senna-inspired helmet for Brazil GP

Lewis Hamilton is using the upcoming Brazil Grand Prix to pay tribute to one of the country’s greatest drivers.

As Hamilton attempts to close in on Mercedes teammate Nico Rosberg in the Formula 1 standings, he’ll be sporting a bright yellow helmet for the race on Sunday in dedication to Brazilian great Ayrton Senna:

Senna, who Hamilton regards as one of his idols, is one of the most decorated drivers in Formula 1 history.

The Brazilian won three world championships for McLaren between 1988 and 1991 before being killed in an accident in the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix.

He was only 34 years old.
