For Jenson in those years it had become a tradition to have a special British-themed helmet for the home Grand Prix.
Austrian Bernie Zobl explained how he had managed to fulfill a dream: "Through an article in one of the Austrian newspapers, I read about the opportunity to design a helmet for Jenson. As an enthusiastic F1 fan, I had to seize the opportunity immediately! The slogan 'Push the Button' was my first idea and although my family laughed at its simplicity, I have stuck to it. And as you can see ... it was worth it! Also, it was important for me to integrate the existing logo of Jenson in my design for its popularity and recognition value I am very happy to have won the contest and am looking forward to seeing Jenson wearing "my" helmet at Silverstone ".
We are therefore faced with a very special helmet from one of the finest drivers in motorsports in recent times.
