F1 2007 Preview: Helmets

Posted on

| Written by

Time was when drivers would go throughout their career without changing their helmets. These days F1 racers seem to spend every moment they’re out of the cockpit dreaming up a new style, or finding some way of cramming more adverts on them.

Home races, one-off sponsor deals, minor football tournaments – everything has been used as a pretext for a unique, possibly chrome, certainly one-of-a-kind collector’s edition helmet.

Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen and Mark Webber are just three of the drivers sporting new styles in 2007. Here’s a run down of all the drivers in 2007 and the lids they’re be wearing.

  1. Not only do Toyota never change their livery, their drivers never change their helmets

  2. It’s good to see Anthony Davidson has kept the same basic helmet design he had when he was about eight years old…

  3. Massa changed his helmet design for 2007. You can add the new picture if you want.

  4. Thanks for the spot – have updated accordingly (and Raikkonen’s).

  5. Has Lewis always had the same helmet design throughout his motor sport career? If so does anyone know why?



  6. He used a yellow helmet when he was in karting so his dad could spot him more easily. Not, as has been suggested, as an homage to Ayrton Senna.
