Sebastian Vettel has launched a competition for fans to win a place on his race helmet for his final Grand Prix.

The four-time World Champion will bring his F1 career to a close at the season finale in Abu Dhabi, where he will race for the final time.

In an initiative called My Final Lap, fans will have the chance to bid for a place on his commemorative race helmet at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Fans will get to bid for individual spaces on the race helmet, with all money going towards a charity chosen by Vettel.

At the time of writing, bids for various spots on his race helmet had reached €70,000, €58,000, €50,000 and €28,000.

However, dozens of spaces on the helmet – which can be seen at www.finallap.de – remain priced at €85.

The auction ends 8PM UK time on Thursday 10th November.

Video: F1 pit-stops under two seconds are allowed (and THIS is why)

At the Mexico City Grand Prix, McLaren became the first team to complete a sub-two second pit-stop since the introduction of the new F1 pit-stop regulations, changing all four tyres on Daniel Ricciardo's car in 1.98 seconds.

So how did the team do this, and what changes have been made to F1's pit-stop procedure in the last couple of years?
