Design: Sebastian Vettel’s 2015 Ferrari helmet
Sebastian Vettel is a controversial driver in Formula 1: you either hate him, or love him. Making his debut in 2007 for BMW Sauber as a temporary replacement for the concussed Robert Kubica, Vettel went on to make his full season debut for Toro Rosso in 2008. He scored STR’s first and to date only victory in the soaking wet temple of speed, Monza. He was promoted to Red Bull for the subsequent season, and won his first WDC in 2010, after which he dominated with three more WDC wins in 2011, 2012 and 2013 – causing a lot of hate from people fearing another Schumacher era. The 2014 season marked a turning point in his career. The car (but mostly the engine) was relatively terrible, prompting Vettel to leave for Ferrari and subsequently dropping the Red Bull helmet design for this minimalist beauty.
This was the first helmet design I made, making the template from which other designs have derived from scratch. Below, you can see the stuff on offer, both free and paid:
- Desktop wallpaper (1920×1080)
- Phone wallpaper (1080×1920)
- Phone wallpaper (smaller design) (1080×1920)
Now seriously, if you like to have this as a wallpaper for either your phone or computer but you dislike the background color or you want the helmet to be slightly smaller/larger or a different aspect ratio, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (or click the link in the sidebar if you have outlook configured). Put the name of the driver (in this case: Lauda) in the subject title, and tell me what you want differently. If you want a different color, it helps me if you can tell me the hex code (i.e. #FFFFFF, which is white). If not, a description will do. I will reply to you with the product of your input attached!
As much as I want to, I can’t magically make free shirts or mugs with this design appear. Thankfully, you can purchase them through Redbubble. As far as I have heard from people who have purchased designs by me before, the quality is good and delivery is in about a week. You can buy loads, such as the aforementioned t-shirts and mugs, but also stickers, phone cases (mainly iPhone and Samsung), hoodies, bags, journals, and even clocks. Below you can view a few choice options (which I’d love to buy myself if I could) and links to pages where you can buy them.
For all options, you can scroll down on this page. If you’d like to purchase something but want a tiny edit, feel free to contact me at email@example.com. If you purchase something, please let me know (either on reddit, facebook or twitter, links in the sidebar) and I will thank you personally!
