  1. That Lewis’s helmet thanks McLaren as wellasmakes more room for the Mercedes logo. Saying Hello?
    BTW, What cartoon is represented in Giedo’s helmet?

  2. Do you know if drivers keep their helmets and just repaint them, or get a whole new helmet for each design?

    1. New helmet every time. Alonso and Vettel are known to collect helmets.

      1. They could toss one to me. Just sayin’

  3. That Adrain Newey picture is pretty awesome.

  4. Is it possible to build a transparent helmet? By which one could see the whole of the driver’s face?

    1. No, because they are filled with a foam for protection, so if you would do it, the helmet would lose its protective function.

  5. Hamilton’s helmet is his best yet.
