Has he always had his race number bold on his helmet?
I've just noticed in a couple of pics of his older helmets that he's had his race number.
Understandable in motogp etc where you can keep your number, but so keen to display a number you get for 1 year?


The avatar............. :D Good choice.

Interesting :well: Probably it's because of the RAR format. Whatever, I uploaded them to IS :)

So as we go into 2013, i suspect we will see a new design from Kimi... maybe the #7 will be prominent like the #9 last season?

Colour change anyone?

Don't believe we will see big changes in helmet design. The Lotus cars don't change colour wise. And Kimi hardly changed his helmet from 2003 to 2005 when McLaren had the same colours. Would only expect the number 9 be changed in a 7.

Kimi hasn't changed his helmet much in past 6 years, I hope he will change his helmet a bit more this time and maybe towards to his James Hunt monaco helmet at least in colour side....but his all time best helmets are still mcLaren 2004 monaco helmet,2002,2003-2005 mclaren helmets.

I hope not. An almost all black helmet couldn't be more boring

I do like his 2003-05 designs, simple but stands out.

I didn't say almost black...black main colour with Kimi's usual top and then other colours/ sponsors would be nice. If he would go back to his McLaren type of helmets that would be even better as the current one is not on that level althought it's nice.

I always liked his Ferrari one, especially 2008.

Honestly, I think the simpler, the better. Most modern helmets are all too fidgety and detailed, don't like it at all. The Graham Hill/Damon Hill design is one of the best ever if you ask me.

That said, I quite like Kimi's 2012 design, it's simple enough to be made out on the TV screen and quite unique. Don't think there will be huge changes.

I think he should do something to piss everyone off...
How about a replica of Romain's helmet? Or one of the other drivers?
A cool idea which you see a fair bit in the bike racing, is different designs on each side of his helmet.
Is there a thread for best helmets ever?

:up:

Hakkinen and de Angelis/Alesi also come to mind with simple designs that last.

Piquet/Prost had truly excellent designs. Recognizable and original. Compared to that, Alonso's, Vettel's, Schumacher's are boring, dull and zero design interesting.





As for Kimi, can anyone photoshop the "7" insted of the "9" ?

Kimi's 2012 lid is my favourite design of the past few years... clean and simple and bold, making it easy to spot in the car. In fact I've just bought a 1/2 scale replica and hoping it arrives soon!

IMO if the FIA are going to do nothing about insisting teams make car numbers visible, easy to spot helmets are essential.

Kimi's new helmet?
Love it.

EDIT: Sorry, mistake. Didn't see it was already discussed in other thread.

I like this helmet more than last year's. I agree black and red is match made in heaven. :)

Class act :up:

Raikkonen and Massa agreed to trade helmets and Kimi just dropped his off with Felipe. But he also came with a surprise for Felipe's son: A miniature replica of his helmet. That's just straight up cool.

What a lucky kid. He will have a great memory getting this cool helmet from his father's friend Kimi who just happens to be an F1 world champion.

Very thoughtful of Kimi.

I think getting a replica helmet is the least of the reasons why that kid is lucky.
