2009 Lewis Hamilton Signed Official Limited Edition Replica McLaren Mercedes F1 Helmet
Official Limited Edition 2009 Lewis Hamilton helmet. The iridescent visor has been signed and dated in silver marker pen by Hamilton. JLF, Hamilton’s helmet painter, painted these replicas as well. This particular one is #4 of a potential 100 pieces, as it is thought that although McLaren had the ability to create 100 of them, they actually produced far less than that (believe to be less than 25).
In 2008 Hamilton, became the youngest driver to win the World Drivers’ Championship. The following 2009 season McLaren expected Hamilton and their new Mercedes powered MP4-24 car to cement their place at the top of the Championship. Unfortunately the design of the new car did not live up to expectations and the first half of the season was a disaster, with a frustrated Hamilton calling for the car to be scrapped. However, after bringing upgrades to the car, McLaren and Hamilton’s fortunes would reverse, as they picked up two wins, one second and two third place finishes, seeing Hamilton finish the season in fifth place in the World Drivers’ Championship. Lewis Hamilton is currently a 7-time World Champion and holds most of the current F1 records.
This signed helmet, from his first season as the reigning World Champion, makes a great collectors piece. So don’t hesitate to make it part of your collection today as its an ultra rare piece.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
