Max Verstappen put out a teaser on Instagram showing a glimpse of his new helmet design ahead of the Miami GP
F1 action moves to the U.S.A next weekend and the F1 community just can’t wait for it to begin! The stage is set for the debut of Miami in the F1 calendar and it is a super exciting prospect for fans and drivers alike.
Ahead of the Miami Grand Prix, defending champion and Imola GP winner Max Verstappen has left fans curious with a teaser of his new helmet design.
It is evident from the pictures that the iconic ‘palm trees’ of the glorious Miami beach forms a major part of the design. Verstappen put a post on Instagram revealing glimpses of the design titled ‘Coming Soon’. With a mix of the Red Bull colours blue and red, the new helmet has a tropical look with palm trees, representing the coastal city of Miami in Florida, US.
Max Verstappen is going to Miami high on confidence after Imola win
Max Verstappen put up a stellar show in Imola to win his second race of the season – Emilia Romagna Grand Prix.
Max Verstappen was at his best in Imola on a day dominated by Red Bull which saw Verstappen’s team-mate Sergio Perez take second place just behind the defending champion. Verstappen looked like a man on a mission throughout the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix. Verstappen won the Sprint on Saturday to take pole position and successfully converted it to P1 to seal his second win of the season. With this win, Verstappen has gone up to the second spot with 59 points in the drivers’ championship, just behind Ferrari’s Charles Leclerc (86).
Max Verstappen has had a roller-coaster season so far. The defending champion started on a poor note with a DNF in the Bahrain Grand Prix but came back strong in Jeddah to win the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. However, things didn’t go according to plan once again in Melbourne and Verstappen registered his 2nd DNF of the season at the Australian Grand Prix. Therefore, this win will certainly act as a major confidence booster for the defending champion ahead of the Miami Grand Prix.
