dude are you just in this forum to hate on Vettel? His design is always different....


He is right though, the design itself stays the same but the colors change, thats the basis of all his helmets.

I've always assumed that the colour scheme is a vital part of a design. The core elements on Vettel's helmets, the composition, always stays the same, this is true, but
I'd say it is merely framework.

Awesome looking helmet. :cool:

Though I doubt Kimi will have purple in his helmet. He usually always goes for red, white and black.

He'll likely need to have purple in it to appease Infiniti. I imagine DaiMon was going for the purple/Red Bull Blue gradient as the base here.

Red Bull is pretty strict on helmet designs. They make the driver have specific branding elements. So I don't think Kimi could get away with whatever he wanted.

BTW Looks great DaiMon! Love it.

Kimi's the type of person that, when he signs a contract, says 'you want me? well I don't want purple in my helmet'.

Thank you. :)

Actually the base color of the helmet is blue, but the highlighted areas are fading to purple, just like on the car. Since there are several light source in the rendering scene, maybe it looks a bit more purpleish than it should be.

By the way he used a blue based helmet in 2009 when he raced for Red Bull in WRC as well.

Great job! Though I have to admit there was about 1 second of panic before I realised it was a mock-up :lol: The gold is a tad too much for me.
Would love to see the top since that's usually the view from the onboards.

Thanks, but this time credit goes to MDM Designs as well, because he had the original idea, I just made it look realistic. :)

Brighter version of his Spanish grand prix helmet, which was retired later on in Montreal.

This was my first thought. :lol:

+1 White-dominant helmet designs are underrated. :) I liked Hamilton's Singapore 2012 a lot among others, Kobayashi's Ferrari (the little touch of Italian flag green) design wasn't bad either.

As I live in Vienna (outside) and know, that Hungary is even hotter than Vienna, it will be very, very, very hot! The weather-forecast increases the temperatures every day. Tomorrow afternoon I go to Budapest. Really can´t wait!

Saw Sutil with the Uruguayan flag on his helmet in Spa FP1. From what I recall he has some of that South American blood in him, right?

Different helmet for Jorge this weekend, designed Anna Vives.

 

A bit late commenting on this, but I thought Lorenzo's helmet above was a fantastic freeform design at first look. All the more so when I read up on the artist Anna Vives below.

 

 

Its more of an "idea" what do you think of when you have graffiti?

Beautiful, I do wonder what it will be like next year, but this was the better of his Ferrari lids. His 09 one was horrendous.

Most of the helmets on the grid look horrendous but I've yet to see an F1 helmet designed by Uffe Tagström of UD (Uffe Designs) that looks horrendous, and that '09 Kimi helmet is no exception.

Not sure about that, the gradient colour and over use of that paisley design was rotten.
