Brawn GP - Jenson's Silverstone Helmet Design

As usual Jenson will adopt a special helmet for the British GP

A competition was launched at the start of the 2009 season to give Jenson’s fans the opportunity to design a one-off helmet, incorporating a British theme, for Jenson’s home Grand Prix.

After reviewing hundreds of entries, Bernie Zobl’s ‘Push The Button’ design was chosen by Jenson. The design has been carefully applied to his race helmets for the weekend and will make its track debut during the first practice session on Friday 19 June.

Bernie said: “Through an article in one of the Austrian daily newspapers, I read about the opportunity to design a helmet for Jenson. As an enthusiastic F1 fan, I had to grab the chance immediately! The slogan ‘Push the Button’ was my first brainwave and even though my family laughed about its simplicity, Ive held on to it. And as you can see… it has been worth it! Additionally it was important to me to integrate Jenson’s existing logo into my design because of its popularity and recognition value. I am very pleased about winning the competition and can’t wait to see Jenson using ‘my’ helmet in Silverstone.”

Jenson commented: "As my home race, the British Grand Prix is always really special and I love the atmosphere created at Silverstone by the British fans. For the last few years, it has become something of a tradition for me to have a special British themed helmet and this year is no exception. I wanted my fans to be involved so we ran a competition on my website www.jensonbutton.com and chose the winning design by Bernie. What I loved about Bernies design was its unique take on the Union Jack flag and how he had incorporated it into my own Button logo. The helmet looks great and I cant wait to wear it at Silverstone this weekend."

About Me

I have been an F1 fan from a very early age, however in my very early years I didn't really support a team just loved the racing. Since the BAR years I have been supporting this team through it's highs and lows. I'm confident under Ross Brawn's control the team will go from strength to strength and hopefully Jenson and Rubens can find themselves in a competitive car once more.
