ITEM OF THE WEEK 2022 Valtteri Bottas Signed Miami GP Used Alfa Romeo F1 Helmet – CONTACT FOR PRICING

Valtteri Bottas had three special Stilo helmets painted for the 2022 Miami Grand Prix. He is the first F1 driver to ever have three custom, one-off helmets made for a race weekend.  The helmets were all designed by his girlfriend Tiffany Cromwell, who also designed his regular race helmet. We were able to secure one, with this Stilo helmet being worn by Valtteri Bottas on the Friday of the 2022 Miami GP weekend. Bottas would go on to have a terrific weekend qualifying in 5th, just ahead of his old Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton. Bottas drove a strong race and finished in 7th place, making it a total of 4 top-10 finishes since having joined Alfa Romeo. This particular model, a ST5-VB, is made by Stilo specifically to Bottas’ exacting specifications.

Bottas is one of the most accomplished Finnish drivers in Formula One history, with ten race wins during his five seasons with Mercedes. He would finish second to teammate Lewis Hamilton in the Drivers’ Championship in both 2019 and 2020.

The GP3 Champion from 2011 broke into F1 in 2013 with the Williams Racing team, where he spent four seasons. His second season there produced six podium finishes, which got the attention of the F1 paddock. He joined Mercedes for the 2017 season, helping them win four Constructors’ Championships. His best season came in 2019 when he won four races and scored five poles, with 15 podium finishes in 21 races.

The helmet has been signed by both Bottas and Cromwell and comes with his original Stilo helmet bag.

This unique helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
