Sebastian Vettel has once-again attracted the spotlight in a Formula 1 season.

Despite a relatively slow start to the 2013 season, Vettel remained consistent early and later caught fire with an ongoing seven-race winning streak. Locking up the 2013 Formula 1 World Drivers' Championship after the Indian Grand Prix, Sebastian Vettel heads into the upcoming United States Grand Prix in Austin, Texas as a driver still on a mission to stand out among competitors. Thanks to artist Rolf Carsjens, the Red Bull Racing driver will have a slightly different look at the Circuit of the Americas for Friday and Saturday.

A winning design resulting from a social media driven design competition, Vettel's helmet during Friday practice, Saturday practice and qualifying is specially created for the 2013 United States Grand Prix. Carsjens' design prominently features the unmistakable details of the American flag. A more subtle detail on the helmet design honour the city of Austin. Musical notes run along the top and bottom. Red Bull colours and sponsorship badging are integrated into the helmet design.

Currently based in Albuquerque, New Mexico, Rolf Carsjens is a German born artist who happens to be a big fan of the four-time Formula 1 champion. "His performance and professionalism as a young Formula One Driver is incredible. I also like his personality: He seems to be so humble and down to earth. I'm looking really forward to meeting Sebastian in person.", said Carsjens. For his part in designing the winning helmet design, Rolf Carsjens and a guest (his wife Sheilagh) was granted VIP access at the Circuit of the Americas' Formula 1 weekend. The VIP hospitality includes a trip to the Red Bull Racing garage as the honour of meeting Sebastian Vettel himself.
