Cape Town - Lewis Hamilton has received a staggering 8 000-plus entries from fans hoping that their design will be the one chosen for his 2017 helmet.

Last month Hamilton asked fans to submit their entries for his new helmet livery, stating that he would chosen the design that was the "most stylish, inspiring, iconic and eye-catching."

As well as the Brit using the winner's design throughout the 2017, that person will also receive a full-sized replica that has been signed by the Mercedes driver.

The competition has closed with Hamilton receiving more than 8 000 entries.

Now he has to chose the winner.

"Wow, over 8 000," he wrote on Instagram. "Thanks for all the helmet designs and putting in so much effort #TeamLH!! 

"Some really great entries in there. 

"As the competition's now closed I'm going to be looking through to see the design that I'd like to pick. 

"There's quite a few entries to go through, so this might take some time but hoping to announce the winner in the next few days."
