photoshop mockups are a must for those of you with the skills!

Big question for me is, Arai (god I hope so) or back to Schuberth (jesus I hope not!)?

I think he only went to Schuberth cos of the Ferrari tie up...then again, McLaren drivers historically wear Arais (minus a half a season with Jense dont know why that was)

The GP6 is just stunning and I really hope he goes back to it and not a huge schuberth or MASSIVE bell

the simple scheme of 2005 or his initial helmet of 2001 would do just fine for me. Not a too big fan of a busy helmet.

If somebody makes a new design, he can send it to the competition thread in my signature. The only requirement is that only changing colours isn't enough.

This is a very important topic, i think he'll probably do dark colours and it will have Iceman written on it probably some beautiful matt colouring

i think the bottom could be similar with the iceman part, he will probably use the black and gold of the car in his helmet

Remember this one: "The helmet has a special meaning for many drivers. How important is it to you? Kimi: It protects my head." ... :)

Replace the blue parts with the Lotus gold and I think you have the helmet.

He's been wearing a 'Stilo' while rallying, perhaps he'll use thier fancy full-face lid?

Exciting times.

Looks good :up:

Although viewed from the front it will be ugly with the large Lotus logo

From Kimi sings with Lotus Renault GP thread:

An idiot detail, but I want to see Kimi wearing a Bell Helmet. Renault have a deal with Bell helmets and will be very nice to see one of Kimi nice painting designs in a Bell helmet..

Bell helmets are fugly! And unlike Ferrari's deal with Schuberth, the Lotus srivers dont contractually HAVE to wear Bell's as shown by Heidfeld in his Schuberth this year. nick's helmet was one of the best ive seen , so was his White German gp helmet from i think 2008. Kimi's gonna have spmething special i just know it :)

:lol:

Wasnt there a rumor that Uffedesigns was already working on Kimis helmet? Someone close could try and sneak a peak.
The Iceman logo will be there as well as his usual crest with horns looking thing. Getting a green Lotus logo mixed up with that just doesnt work methinks :/

Judging from the collection available in LRGP's online store you'll be able to buy both a 1:1 and a 1:2 replica of Kimi's helmet next year.

OMG, the photoshop was posted some 20 posts earlier on the same page and that wasn't noticed from a smaller pic. Puxanando, did you find that from another site as Kimi's official 2012 helmet?

I think he meant that on a political level, given the history of both countries

Does Kimis lid have a halo around it at the top as a design feature or was it adopted when he went to McLaren for the sponsors?

Very nice.. but from the front, looks more like it could be Kubica's helmet because of the resemblance to the polish flag's colors.
