Vettel’s special helmet (Pictures)

Sebastian Vettel is using a special helmet design for the Brazilian Grand Prix this weekend.

The German’s helmet bears the message ‘Grazie mille Toro Rosso’ thanking his team for the year and a half he’s spent with them. He joined them part-way through 2007 and leaves them having scored his – and their – maiden win in the Italian Grand Prix.

He is joining Red Bull for 2009, replacing David Coulthard, whose car has a special livery this weekend commemorating his final race.
