The 23-year-old said, "Hi guys, of course, we are back here in Austria, home Grand Prix. And, of course with a home Grand Prix, we have a helmet reveal like every year, and what a surprise! surprise, it's yellow again."

"But of course that's not the only thing you can get. Because we have the mini ones, like always. I think this one again, super nice. And of course, the other one, little bit bigger, just as big as my head, but both of them are available at," he concluded.
