Valtteri Bottas' lid = win. A throwback to the times of old simple designs, finally!

Obviously does have shitloads of sponsors on it though, but that can't be helped.

I think Lewis' helmet looks a bit like an American flag on the side from a distance. That is pretty cool because I live in America and it's great!!


Am I the only one who sees this?

Certainly looks like the idea could have derived from this.

Yeah, this one is more subtle than that one. It might just be my eyes, but then again he does spend a lot of time in America.

Swarovski crystals are the top-of-the-line newest thing in helmet design actually. Lots of guys are doing them for special helmets like Lammers' Las Vegas helmet shown here. One of my kart buddies has some on his latest helmet.


Karting helmets are the nuts. This hole kart/lid combo has to be my favourite

That one does. Heikki and JJ in his later career...not so much.

It is a similar in design to what Mika Salo had in his career, actually, but with the blue matching that of the Williams.

I seem to remember hearing that Mika Salo was having a new swimming pool built at his house. He asked for his helmet design to be incorporated into the floor as a mosaic. When it was finished and he got his first look at it, he was horrified to see they'd used Mika Hakkinen's helmet design by mistake.

For sure, Fore's Maranello gear was out of control cool. White and chrome wins every time.

I like Bottas' helmet. I still really like the old iconic designs like his and Hulk's. So clean.

Bottas' helmet is cool, but it bothers me a little bit that is so integrated to Williams colours. Would be better if'd be a little bit more personal.
But the design is simple and very nice :up:

Salo started off with one that looked very like Alain Prost's. In the same way Kimi's FRenault helmet was the same as Klaus Ludwig's.

If you go back to his karting days Kimi rocked an Andretti tribute.

JOHN Andretti no less.

I love the simplicity of its design :up:

And actually, I really like matching helmets to liveries
One of the best recent examples:

I've grown to the Bell in recent years, Button used a beautiful one in 2004 I think, it was his white and orange one, beauty.

I don't know if it's just the angle but that certainly looks better.

Felipe's new design. It's different from the one we've seen at Wroom, as expected.

What's so new about it? They've only added Kaspersky's logo on a white ring where Marlboro used to sat before 2011. Though have to say the Ferrari helmets do look better with a white ring on it, like the old days.

Probably because of the white ring, otherwise would look strange.

Ferrari drivers helmet looked cool because they didnt have ad halo on top of helmet. It'll be a shame if they're going to have that Kaspersky ring this year.

Looks way better than last year's. At least the Eiffel Tower is hidden more this year, it looked atrocious with that on the side last year.

Hmm, pretty interesting helmet (I'm talking about van der Garde's).
White seems to have turned into a trendy colour this season.

Since he's tested a car (albiet briefly) i think James Rossiter helmet qualifies to go on here, not a bad design either!
