Sebastian Vettel will race with a specially designed helmet at the Monaco Grand Prix, paying tribute to Niki Lauda after the Austrian’s passing this week at the age of 70.
Vettel’s design apes the classic look Lauda carried in his racing career, with his name emblazoned on a red background.
Ferrari will carry Lauda’s name on their car by way of tribute, with similar markings appearing on cars up and down the grid.
