Lando Norris has revealed a spectacular new helmet design for the inaugural Miami Grand Prix.

The young Briton, who scored a podium last time out at Imola, will rock a basketball-inspired design for the event at the Miami International Autodrome.

Norris has spent much of the build-up to the Miami Grand Prix playing golf at a Florida course owned by basketball legend Michael Jordan, and has chosen to pay tribute to Jordan's sport with his helmet design, as F1 prepares for what could prove to be its biggest-ever event in the United States.

Norris: I thought it would make a cool helmet!

Speaking on LandoNorris.com, where a half-scale version on the helmet can be purchased, Norris explained the inspiration behind the design.

He said: "I saw some people playing basketball one time, and I thought, damn, that'd make for a cool helmet, so I did it.

"It has some cool details on it, like my signature, my logo and my name in black with a nice neon outline."
