Lance graduated to Formula One in 2017 off the back of a stellar junior career that included titles in Italian Formula 4, the Toyota Racing Series and European Formula 3.

His first year in F1 included the highs of scoring his first points at home in Montréal followed by an incredible P3 Baku, showcasing racecraft beyond his years to become the second-youngest podium finisher in the history of the sport.

The young Canadian has only improved further following his switch to Team Silverstone in 2019, scoring multiple podiums and sealing his first pole position in the tricky wet conditions of Istanbul last year.

With an expertly judged drive to sixth in Qatar and a fighting comeback to snatch a point from 19th on the grid in France, some strong performances for Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One™ Team in 2021 gave a taste of what's to come in the new era.

Lance's 2020 crash helmet design has proven to be one of the most popular on the grid, and he's taken it to the next level with a revised 100th Grand Prix iteration.

We spoke to Lance's helmet designer Mark Antar, who explained the inspiration behind the one-off special edition.

"To celebrate Lance's 100th Grand Prix, we really wanted to create a helmet that was special, without losing the identity of his current design.

"We wanted some extra spice, and, with his 100th race also coinciding with the season finale, I wanted to take it up a notch.

"The helmet features the 100 Grands Prix logo at the base, and the entire design is green with metallic flakes, which gives it an extra dimension.

"The Aston Martin wings are chrome green, but the offset layer on the outer edge is chrome silver, which is very subtle but should look nice under the lights at the Yas Marina Circuit.

"For 2022, we're planning on evolving this design even further, so this weekend's race is almost a farewell to the helmet's current identity, celebrating Lance's time in Formula One to date."
