Charles Pic helmet design, Monaco, 2012We’ve already seen the special helmets being sported by Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen and Jean-Eric Vergne for the Monaco Grand Prix weekend.

Here’s a few more design changes being used by Sergio Perez, Pastor Maldonado, Romain Grosjean and Charles Pic.

Pic’s design features the names of Monaco Grand Prix winners on the top, with six-times winners Ayrton Senna picked out on the top.

Maldonado’s is one of four special designs he will use during the season, the others appearing in Britain, Italy and the USA. The design will reflect the elements earth, wind, fire and air.

According to its designers: “The Earth Beat is the beat of life in Venezuela and Pastor’s love for his nation. For this reason, Kaos Design has created a graphic tribute for the Williams driver, the winner of last Grand Prix and his country.”

  1. Have these drivers been running the new helmets all weekend or just for the race? I like pics helmet, clever idea

  2. I’m not 100% sure about the dates highlighted on Pic’s helmet? Are they noted as particular classics?

    P.S. Did anyone else look at the picture and think: “I didn’t know Senna won Monaco 9 times….!

  3. Looking forward to Maldonado’s fire helmet!

  4. Did the McLaren drivers not have special helmets designs for Monaco this year or did I miss them?

    In recent years they have usually had different helmets for Monaco.
