Since Robert Kubica has presented his 2019 helmet today.. here is edition 2019.

Credits go to cravenciak for posting this before in the 2018 helmet thread.

I'm not sure if it's final for 2019, so I'm posting it here:

Good lad. I always get a warm feeling when this thread starts again every year.

Well, I kinda like it too. I dig the design of Kubica. It is striking and very recognizable.

I presume Orlen the Polish company bankrolling Kubica?

Cool. 

 

What colour helmet is Russell likely to use?

 

Does he still use that Schumacher-esque red lid?

 

Might be confusing if Kubica and Russell are both in red.

Not sure I'm being excessively pessimistic here, but anyone else dreading to see what Ricciardo means when he says his new helmet design is going to be "radically different to any other"?

This is also the first look at the new helmets in general for 2019, without the reinforced strip across the top of the visor.

At least it will be 'Red Bull free' and I'm expecting the honey badger on there somewhere

Be nice if Riccardo hand painted his lid, like Wurz used to do.

Looks pink/purple and light blue in that pic, and he's planning to add yellow, gold and black it seems.

Knowing Danny boy the way he presents himself, it will be likely to be an outrageous design.

Kubica had worse helmets. But still this one is kinda of meh, pretty generic and ugly.

Found this helmet in his website qzn files. A wierd one, looks incomplete, but I like it since i'm the one who made it... but I dont like it that much actually... and qzn has no meaning

Not to be an expert or anything, but to be honest I think you made that up yourself, which is why you would like it. And I don't think .qzn really means anything. :p

I found similar .qzn files on your own website, so it was just a matter of joining the dots.

 

("sf0ny" was quite good, actually)

Nice work! 

 

Though I'd be amazed if Ricciardo's helmet doesn't have more prominent Australian iconography on it somewhere.

Kubica's design is a mess. 

 

All these lightning flash "speed-lines".

 

The old rule - keep it bold, easily memorable and something you could replicate with a packet of crayons, makes absolute sense.

 

My own helmet design (in avatar here) is better than 90% of the grid!

Well diffrent taste diffrent design I would say. I always loved de Rossi moon and sun design. In general i liked the bike helmet designs more than the F1 designs. I really liked the MV orange helmet. None of those really follow youre rule.

Yep, far too many of the designs have that nonsense going on. And don't forget the pig snout too! It's the generic F1 driver design now... several variations throughout the grid but just in terms of different colours. And none of the awkward shapes and umpteen overlays go together.

Imo it's been a mess for over 13 years due to the spikes and overlays. As have been the designs of many if not most other drivers.

I like the spikes and overlays. It's not like they are overblown or something. They are adding to the design imho.

Yeah? Good luck drawing that abomination from memory. Or, come to think of it, it wouldn't be too hard- pig snout, check, lots of messy shapes and swooshes, check. There, you're an F1 helmet designer. :)

Yeah, these spiky spikes are a real nuisance.  Why does EVERY helmet design HAVE to have those?  Annoys the **** out of me...  :down:

Presume Orlen will feature prominently on the car, in the absence of any other sponsors.

I saw on Twitter that the Kubica lid was a gift, so it might not be official.

Apparently Verstappen has changed his design radically. It’s mostly white and a bit of red now intstead of dark blue.

Max should just stick to a mostly orange design... it's the only thing that can make these horrid RB helmets halfway decent.
