Perez to race with special helmet in Brazil

With the next instalment in the Black Panther film series being released this week, Sergio Perez has a special helmet to mark the occasion.

Sergio Perez will have a unique helmet design for this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix, modelled on the upcoming Marvel film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever . The Mexican revealed the news in his documentary series Checo , which charts the on- and off-track life of the Red Bull driver. The film is a sequel to the first Black Panther film released in 2018 to critical acclaim. Also featuring in the film is Mexican actor Tenoch Huerta, who is an acquaintance of Perez. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will be released on 11 November, two days before the Brazilian Grand Prix. Lewis Hamilton has previously made reference to the Black Panther film series, dedicating his 2020 Belgian Grand Prix pole position lap to lead actor Chadwick Boseman, who had passed away the previous day.
