Norris to use helmet designed by young fan for F1 British GP

Lando Norris will use a special Formula 1 helmet design created by a six-year-old girl for this weekend’s British Grand Prix following a competition.

Norris held a special competition in the build-up to his home grand prix at Silverstone, inviting his fans to design his helmet for the weekend.

The winning entry came courtesy of six-year-old Eva Muttram, whose father submitted a hand-coloured design on her behalf that was picked by Norris for Silverstone.

“It reminds me a lot of when I was younger, designing helmets, drawing away, just when I was like five, six, seven years old, printing off hundreds of helmet designs, colouring them in and doing whatever,” Norris explained on a Twitch stream revealing the helmet.

“This is the winner. It’s very different to what I’m used to. All this glitz and glamour and sparkly bits and swooshes and cool stuff, I just went with something that

6 things I learned about the Meizu 17 Pro’s design after our steamy week together

Also, the ceramic sides and back should make the phone better

Canceled Real-Estate Deal Throws a Wrench in Brazil’s IPO Rush

(Bloomberg) — In one of the world’s worst hotspots for the coronavirus, a crowded pipeline of initial public offerings got a harsh reality check.

Brazilian builder Direcional scrapped plans Tuesday to list shares of its unit Riva 9, a real-estate developer focused on middle-income housing. The firm cited unfavorable market conditions.

It was a disappointing start to what had promised to be a busy stretch of equity sales in Latin America’s largest economy. Four Brazilian companies are still due to hold IPOs over the next two weeks, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. An education firm, which is going public in the U.S. but has yet to announce a pricing date, could boost the tally to five, the highest number for any fortnight since 2007.

Brazilian issuers are seeking to take advantage of the dissonance that has seen equity markets soaring around the globe amid a global health catastrophe. Money
