Vettel calls on 1000 fans to bid on 'final lap' helmet

Sebastian Vettel will see the curtain fall on his life and times in Formula 1 next week in Abu Dhabi.

But the four-time world champion aims to depart the grid on a positive note, regardless of where he'll finish his swansong outing as a Grand Prix driver.

Vettel will sport in Yas Marina a special helmet designed by Jens Munser Designs that will feature 1000 mini-portraits of fans who will have bid for the privilege on the auction's dedicated website.

All proceeds from "The Final Lap Helmet" will go to environmental projects supported by Vettel.
