I don't understand why drivers ALL go for these little "spikes". They're horrendous and appear on almost every single helmet. How uninspired.

This is what I mean:

And the list goes on and on...

:rotfl: Totally agreed. I guess it's "cool".

Was only thinking that the other day, its the current trend I guess.

Still prefer the older lids that Hakkinen and Schumacher had.

I do like Kobs new lid, very nice colors.

Should see some Monaco specials this weekend.

Alonso put up a small snap of his, looks like chrome.

Interesting little competition going on to see who has the most gaudy and tasteless lid going on.
I think Alonso edges it so far.

Alonso's helmet is not so bad (just too much gold for my taste). The rest (especially Hamilton's) is not my cup of tea.

Really original design in Alonso´s helmet! Love the golden too.

The pieces of the puzzle seem to be all his victories.

And the clockwork on the top corner! A signature for his always thinking and planned racing style! :D It's simply STUNNING!

Edit: Lewis looks nice as well! I Like his style :)

Could they be more camp? Alonso looks like he got hit by a glitterbomb. And Hamilton -- I've seen better grafitti under the bridge downtown.

There's something quite irritating about the use of the word "lid" to mean "helmet".

It's like one of those tabloidese words that surely no-one says in real life.

Actually like both, Alonso's gold, red and white combination looks awesome (although I prefered last year's) and Hamilton's drawing is priceless.

So far, I think I like Vettel's helmet the most. JEV's good as well. Can't wait for Kimi's.

Seb's is nice but yes, he changes all the time so he can hardly call anything a special edition any more.

JEV's is the second best but Lewis wins not only best for Monaco 2013, but best of all time.

If everyone uses a special helmet, they all lose some of their specialty. I'm fine with Alonso, Räikkönen, Hamilton etc. using special helmets, but really, Vergne, Ricciardo, Perez? I don't care about them or their special helmets.
