Max Verstappen has unveiled a new helmet that harks back to his karting days as he closes in on a third Formula 1 title.

The Red Bull driver admitted the change was a "little unexpected" but that he had been working on the design "for a couple of months to make it perfect."

The design is a throwback to the initial designs Verstappen wore in go-karting as well as that of his father, Jos.

While the overall design of Verstappen's helmet is similar, it is the finer details that have been tweaked.

One thing the Dutchman pointed out was the 'V' on the front of the helmet, which is now closer together than in previous designs.
