I'm sorry but Lando's helmet is just bloody hideous.

That white & blue thing at the center, behind it all, it's totally useless & ruins an otherwise interesting design

The white band is ugly and unnecessary. In the Halo era, you can barely see their helmets anyway, they need to be a bold colour and suitably contrasting to their team-mate in order to tell who's who's from the stands or sofa.

It’s not a halo it’s just a massive 7

Lando's helmet looks like a birthday present complete with a ribbon and bow.

I was refering to the Mclaren duo's lids. The old 'halo' thing seems superfluous nowadays.

Well, without the white band Lando's helmet design would be a complete mess. Now it's only a 98% mess or thereabouts...

To me, that band truncates any flow the design had to start with:

This helmet should be Maldonado's. Being around him was kind of a luck/russian roulete thing.

It's a element that works better on some designs and less on others and when it doesn't the designer and/or the helmet wearer is to blame. The only way to add any flow to Lando's tasteless mess is a complete redesign...

Agree that it worked well on designs such as Schumacher, Barrichello, Hakkinen etc. Obvious exception of that era was Coulthard. The band was awkward.

Oh, you are being sexist! There was me thinking you meant it didn't look like the end of a man's genitals. My bad.  :rolleyes:

 

Regardless of the helmet's gender, it's grim. Looks like he has beaten Grosjean to the worst helmet award.

Has anyone else spotted the naked lady underneath the roulette wheel / dartboard? Norris seems to have taken inspiration from those James Bond movie intros, or at any rate Alan Partridge.

Somewhere, there is a simple classic within the Russell design.

Rule of Thumb

 

If the average bloke can't replicate a helmet design with two cans of spay paint and a roll of masking tape there is too much going on.

Looks like a bit of green on Ricciardos helmet from the super zoomed photo in the Renault thread.

Is that one of the helmets made to comply with the new regulations, with the super narrow opening?

 

Can tell by how small that Renault sticker on the visor is.

Russell's isn't bad, Lando's is vile.

I like yellow and blue helmets, just not that one.

I'm still slightly bemused why Russell thinks 63 is a better approximation of GR than 62.

Oh, that's what he was going for? Good god...

"Hey, check this out! 'G' looks just like a 6!"
"Cool. But what about the 'R'?"
"Hum... whatever, slap a 3 there and let's go to the pub."

Kamui knows what he is doing.

 

Cherry Blossom Sakura, the Japanese national flower. EDIT: And inside the flower a sun. Can't be more clear than that.

Has Ricciardo been using two different lids? In that shakedown picture it looks like an entirely white helmet with a green stripe on visor level.

Totally agree. And for the record, I have absolutely nothing against flowers anyway.
