2020 Valtteri Bottas Signed Portuguese & Emilia Romagna GP Race Used AMG Mercedes Benz Stilo F1 Helmet
Race-used helmet worn by Valtteri Bottas during the 2020 Formula 1 season at the Portuguese and Emilia Romagna Grands Prix. Valtteri Bottas is a Finnish racing driver currently competing in Formula One with Mercedes, racing under the Finnish flag, having previously driven for Williams from 2013 to 2016. Bottas has won nine races, three in 2017, four in 2019 and two in 2020, since joining Mercedes in 2017.
At both races using this helmet, Bottas finished on the podium, scoring back-to-back second places, and one pole at Emilia Romagna GP. Bottas initially led from pole while Max Verstappen passed Hamilton to move up from 3rd into 2nd at the start. On the second lap Bottas hit some debris on the track which damaged his car, slowing his progress for the remainder of the race. Despite the damaged car he held on to finish 2nd in the race. Bottas had a very successful 2020 season finishing on the podium a total of 11 times, which included wins at the Austrian & Russian GPs each, and along with 5 seconds and 3 third place finishes. He ended the season with 223 points earning him a strong second place in the overall Drivers’ Championship.
This distinctive Stilo helmet is in black and white, with blue accents. It has the Monster Energy Drinks and Bose branding logos around the top of the helmet with the Mercedes logo on the top front portion in line with these. Below this, on the back of the helmet, is a ‘Stronger Together’ emblem as well. Epson and Petronas branding logos are on the visor sun strip and the Tibco Software branding logo is on the chin.
The helmet is signed by Bottas and comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
