Rosberg changes helmet after FIFA ban

3,532 views

Nico Rosberg has modified his proposed world cup-themed helmet ahead of the German Grand Prix.

Earlier, the championship leader announced he would celebrate Germany's win by wearing a special helmet at Hockenheim this weekend featuring an image of the famous world cup trophy.

But we reported earlier that reproducing the image of the trophy falls foul of the world football federation FIFA's strict rules protecting its 'official marks'.

The Mercedes driver's public relations manager Georg Nolte confirmed: "There will be an update on Nico's Germany helmet design today.

"(It) will be without (the) world cup trophy, but (now) with four stars on it."

The four stars correspond to each of Germany's world cup wins, in 1954, 1974, 1990 and now 2014.
