2019 Lando Norris Austrian GP Race Used McLaren F1 Helmet
Bell helmet worn by Lando Norris during the 2019 Austrian Grand Prix, where he drove to a 6th place finish, equaling his best finish that year during his rookie season. The helmet was also used at subsequent race weekends requiring a sponsor switch, with the Accelerating Transformation decals on the helmet being replaced with Dufry decals. The visor also displays sponsors as seen during the US GP and Mexican GPs that year. The helmet exhibits nice race wear and is a great Norris rookie season helmet to add to your collection.
Norris, once regarded as one of the true rising stars in European racing, was a member of the McLaren Young Driver Program, winning the F3 Championship in 2017 and finishing second in F2 the following year. The British-Belgian driver made his F1 debut in 2019 with McLaren, and opened his second season on the podium with a third-place finish in the Austrian GP at the Red Bull Ring. The 2021 season would be his breakout year, helping McLaren to a 1-2 finish at Monza in what was Norris’s career-best finish, second to McLaren teammate Daniel Ricciardo. Norris would go on to score 3 other podium finishes, ending the season in 6th place in the overall drivers’ standings. In 2022 he would continue his point scoring ways, including a brilliant 3rd place finish at the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
