Verstappen unveils unique championship helmet after third world title.

Max Verstappen was presented with a special gold World Champion helmet, after clinching his third Formula 1 Drivers' Championship in Qatar.

The Dutchman finished second in the Sprint race, but teammate Sergio Perez crashed out after 12 laps after getting caught up in a crash with Esteban Ocon and Nico Hulkenberg.

Verstappen now becomes just the fifth driver in the history in F1 to achieve three titles in succession, joining Hamilton, Vettel, Juan Manuel Fangio, and Michael Schumacher.

It comes after the team won their sixth Constructors' Championship in a row at the Japanese Grand Prix.

RB celebrated briefly outside their garage, with Verstappen making an appearance alongside key team members including Adrian Newey, Christian Horner, and Helmut Marko.

They were later ushered away to another area to spray champagne and Red Bull, to not contravene any rules surrounding the modification of their pit box for the rest of the weekend.
