The three-time world champion launched the contest on Instagram Thursday.

He is on the lookout for a dope new layout that evolves his current theme and features the candy apple red in his existing design. He will be picking the design that he feel is the most stylish, inspiring, iconic and eye-catching.

The average Joe can become the next world champion? (*Designing skills required)

Further, to enter in the contest, all you have to do is post your designs in your public Instagram account with the hashtag #LH44Design.

Further, From 2015 onwards Formula One imposed a new rule (Article 21.1) that states that drivers must have “substantially” the same helmet colors at every round of the championship.

Moreover, the decision was made so as to ensure drivers can be distinguished easily by fans. So folks if you win this contest and let’s say Lewis wins ( very very high chance) this season. Then basically You win as well.
