Renault drivers Vitaly Petrov and Nick Heidfeld will wear “sparkling golden” race suits in this weekend’s Malaysian Grand Prix.
The team say it is to keep them cooler than they would be wearing their usual black race suits.
The Malaysian Grand Prix is typically one of the hottest races of the year.
According to Renault: “Nick and Vitaly will be using sparkling golden suits on race day in Sepang.
“It’s to allow them to stay a little cooler than they would otherwise be in their traditional black versions. Expect these suits to make several more appearances during the year at the hotter races.”
