Hope Hulkenberg and Bottas don't let me down this year. Those two had the best-looking helmets last season.

Kimi's helmet looks pretty much the same as his 2013 Lotus helmet. Had hoped he would have gone with his 2007 design.

At least the Ferrari drivers will be easy to tell apart. And overall I like how the drivers incorporate their number on their helmets but Rosberg easily tops anyone with that, his new design is great, just that Monster slightly ruins it.

Kimi's helmet from front on with all the black looks tough. I want it. Guess what? I'll never have it :(

Definitely aesthetics and F1 doesn't mix lately.

 

There's still some good helmet designs out there... even Jenson's more recent one (with the more modern looking JB on each side) is still pretty good.

 

There's definitely too much of the modern edgy lines everywhere thing going on now. The last really good helmet designs were in the 90's and early 2000's I think... think of Alesi, Berger, Coulthard, Hakkinen, Villeneuve etc.etc. and you know instantly what their helmet looked like, you could draw it on a piece of paper. Not so much now.

Button helmet found on Twitter, quite possibly fake;

Ugh, I definitely hope it's a fake. Johnnie Walker helmet sponsor would not be good for JB.

I wonder if drivers will be allowed to use roman numbers on their cars, like VI. Don't think so.

 

Would surprise me as well if the FIA would give as much aesthetical freedom to the drivers, but surely Nico wouldn't have done so without checking out beforehand. Would be great for Vettel if it's allowed, and most likely the reason why he chose number 5.

A bit like the wide black band of the Monster logo on the Merc drivers lids.  Pretty much ruins any design.  Hopefully that pic is just a bad photoshop (shades of blue vary all over it).

Sponsors ruin every design.. Driver should have more freedom not to put the logos on the helmet. It's becoming ridiculous. Look at the difference between Kimi last year and this year. What a joke.

There are many replica-helmet stores online, even with customizable products  ;)

Both the Ferrari guy's helmets are nice  :up: though I wish Kimi's was a bit cleaner like some of his earlier designs.

Ericsson's is somewhat boring I think, even if I usually appreciate designs with some link to the driver's nationality.

Nico's helmet would be awesome if not for that hideous Monster bullshit on it...

Painted/ designed by the same folks I would guess, same as di Resta's,  All a bit of a mess, although Hamilton's was fine until last season.

Di Resta's is done by JLF designs, I think, as is Hamilton's

one good thing about having less sponsors ... it makes for a cleaner helmet  :p

 

regarding kimi's helmet, yes i know it's not bad at all (in fact, the best one  so far IMO), but he had a sort of ' The Dark Knight' style design on his Lotus Helmets, and i liked it very much, new one has too much 'Orange red' in it.

and. ... the 'Wei-chei' logo could've been placed somewhere else, it's an eyesore in the no 7. 

 

and ... each year, his special 'runes' symbol on top seems to be getting smaller and smaller  :down:

Exactly my thought.  :p From the front they look less similar though.

Aside from the usual over-fiddly bits, both the Sauber drivers' helmets look good, and I think will look even better in the cockpit.

Is he sponsored by McDonalds now?

 

It literally looks like Kimi's emblem flipped upside down, but badly executed.

Not a fan of that. He should have just used his dads design and kept it. Although it will be easier to spot him now.

 

Glad Hulk has kept his design which is one of the better ones (not saying much though).

I only added that in this topic to highlight the similarity between Sutil's Sauber helmet. I don't know what helmet Hulk will use.

This might be the only angle I like of Kimi's helmet.  His has always been a favorite of mine from Sauber up through to his seasons at Ferrari but it's getting much to busy.  I love the colors but there is just too much going on there.  I thought the Finish people were minimalist?????  :lol:
