Formula 1 fans could get their hands on a McLaren Mercedes cap in the coming weeks - but only if racers Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button put themselves in Grand Prix contention.

For the last six races of the 2012 season, Vodafone - the main sponsor of McLaren - will give away 100 special caps each time one of the Brits makes the race podium.

The broadband provider is running the offer at the Japanese, Korean, Indian, Abu Dhabi, US and Brazilian Grand Prix, meaning there could be plenty of opportunities to win.

However, fans are reliant upon the performance of the two former World Champions, who have experienced mixed fortunes on the track this year.

With six races remaining, Hamilton is in fourth place in the Drivers' Championship on 142 points, 52 adrift from leader Fernando Alonso (194). Button is further behind still on 119 points.

However, the British duo have still managed to chalk up five wins between them in the first 14 races, claiming 11 podium places in total.

So hopes are high that Vodafone will have to make good on its promise to give away 100 caps at some point in the coming weeks.

All fans have to do to stand a chance of winning is enter the prize draw on the Vodafone Facebook page - at any point from the morning of free practice until the morning of the race.

"You can enter once every race weekend, so make sure you save the dates and come back each time for your chance to get a Vodafone McLaren Mercedes official team cap," Vodafone stated.

The competition for this weekend's Japanese Grand Prix is already underway - broadband users have until 0700 BST on Sunday October 7th to enter.
