Lando Norris reveals his new F1 helmet designed by young fan on Twitch

In a heartwarming moment during his Twitch stream on July 30, Formula 1 driver Lando Norris ‘revealed’ the helmet he would be wearing for the British Grand Prix — with a slight twist.

Despite being a big name in the world of Formula 1, Norris has also been making his name as a streamer on Twitch, most recently dabbling in Call of Duty battle royale Warzone and, obviously, F1 2020.

Ahead of the August 2 British GP, though, Lando decided to just have a chat with his audience and unveiled a new helmet with a pretty unique design.

Lando has always been one to rock the boat a little with his helmets, using designs that you might not often see other drivers donning, such as the one he used in the Mexican GP in 2019.

This is a little different though as, rather than using a professional design to cover his head, Lando has instead picked one from a 6-year-old fan named Eva — and it’s exactly what you’d expect a 6-year-old F1 helmet design to look like.

Unveiling his new headgear during his Twitch stream, Norris showed off the simplistic design, with his logo and name well-scribbled on the top and sides and his bright orange McLaren drawn on the back.

To top it all off, she’s even left a signature on the helmet, simply saying “by Eva.”

Lando himself is obviously delighted with the helmet, but we can only imagine how Eva will react when she realizes that her idol is using her design in the British GP, as millions watch on.

It’s not often we get a glimpse into the world of the world’s biggest sports stars on Twitch, but when it’s for things like this, we’d love to see more of it.

Lando is currently fighting hard in F1 to become a world champion, currently sat in fourth place in the standings after some phenomenal races in Austria and Hungary, but will be looking for his second podium finish when he races on home turf at Silverstone on August 2.

Logan Paul wants to fight NHL pro Evander Kane after challenging Jake

YouTube sensation Logan Paul responded to a boxing challenge NHL pro Evander Kane issued to his brother, Jake, during the Impaulsive podcast.

Right after Jake scored a stunning knockout on former basketball player Nate Robinson, the San Jose Sharks left-winger sent a challenge Paul’s way, claiming he’s easy, get ‘wrecked.’

Now, one of the Paul brothers has seemingly accepted the challenge, but it wasn’t the one who Kane was expecting.

“San Jose Sharks? What is that exactly? Some sort of fish or aquatic animal who lives in San Jose?” Logan joked and read Kane’s original tweet. (Segment begins at 33:28)

“Put him on a list,” he remarked. “Does Jake Paul vs Evander Kane, is that a headline fight? How many buys does that get?”

While Jake’s last fight was on the undercard for Mike Tyson’s boxing return against Roy Jones JR, some could argue that Paul stole the show with his huge knockout that went viral on social media. It’s unclear if Kane would have the same star power as Robinson.

The podcast members agreed that the fight wouldn’t exactly be worthy of a headliner, but Logan Paul had an idea.

“Or does he just do it because he will get another fantastic f**king knockout? Is he even active?” Logan asked, inquiring about if Kane was still playing in the NHL. “Okay, so when is he going to train boxing? We’ll go through it again. I’ll put a quarter-million down this time.”

With Logan Paul down to step into the ring against Kane, all that was needed was a response by the forward, who wasted no time in accepting the invitation.

In a short eight-second video tweet, the Sharks player accepted the challenge quite confidently.

“Logan Paul, I’ll take the mop off your head and wipe the floor with you,” he said and proceeded to tag the YouTuber in the reply.

It’s unclear when or if this fight actually goes down, especially with Kane being active in the NHL, so we’ll have to wait and see what happens. The NHL season is set to begin on January 1 at the earliest, but hopefully, the two can arrange for a fight in the following off-season.
