Ferrari drivers Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc are wearing special helmets for Ferrari’s 1,000th world championship at Mugello.

Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris have also revealed new designs for F1’s second race in Italy this year.

Leclerc’s helmet for Ferrari’s 1,000th race is a real treat for fans of the rich history of F1’s longest-running team. It’s adorned with pictures of the drivers who have won the drivers’ championship with the team, from Alberto Ascari (1951) to Kimi Raikkonen (2007).

There’s one picture for each championship, so Leclerc’s helmet includes no fewer than five pictures of Michael Schumacher, one for each title he won with the team between 2000 and 2004. The helmet was designed by Adrien Paviot of BS Designs.

Ricciardo’s helmet this weekend is a tribute to seven-times Moto GP champion Valentino Rossi. “I’m a fan of Rossi, Valentino, and it’s always a race where he would come with these crazy, wild, wacky designs, it was like the home of that for him,” Ricciardo explained.

“So this is a little tip of the hat. I’ve gone basically my design this year but I’ve changed the base. But it it wild, wacky and extreme and I love it.”

Lando Norris

Norris’s choice of helmet design proved controversial two weeks ago. Since then he’s sported a couple of special Italian helmets. This one bears the name of this weekend’s track and those of its 15 corners.

  1. Dan’s lid looks like the 80s threw up on it

  2. That’s a nice poo stained helmet.

    Except it’s ugly as soon, but so is the regular design.

    1. Ugly as sin*

      …My life for a damn edit button.

  3. Holy cow, designs are SO MESSY nowadays…

  4. Philip Morris approves the front bottom half of LEC …

    1. Can’t see it.

  5. Ooh how I wish the helmets were, just-like-in-the-old-days, designed in such a way that kids could draw their favourite driver’s helmet from the top of their heads – though a bit more sophisticated than Lando’s helmet in Silverstone :)

  6. As always Vettel’s helmet as demonstrated last year can be changed lots of times for different occasions while still retaining the same simplistic iconic pattern
    Lando’s helmet can be used to cook any type of pasta
