After being gifted one of Michael Schumacher’s helmets, Lewis Hamilton has an important decision to make – Where will he keep it?
Hamilton was presented the helmet by Michael’s son Mick, after he equalled his father’s 91 career wins record at the Eifel Grand Prix. At the post Eifel Grand Prix press conference Lewis was asked if he will “find a pride of place for it” in his apartment or house.
“Yes, of course,” said the Briton.
“I actually already have one of Michael’s helmets. He and I… one of the really, really special moments for me was in Abu Dhabi 2012.
“I went over to the Mercedes hospitality and met with Michael and we exchanged helmets and that for me was a moment that I will never forget, to stand with someone who I grow up watching on TV and having the honour of exchanging jerseys or helmets, it’s what us sportsmen do and it’s the highest sign of respect that I can think you can really show.

“So to have the legend of the sport do that with me was really special. But to have his family honour me today, I’m just incredibly humbled.
“You know his son is such a great bright talent and just a really genuine human being so Michael’s obviously raised a great man in him and I look forward to seeing how his career will look moving forwards.
“Yeah, but now I have two special helmets from Michael in my small living room,” concluded the six-time champion.
