Pierre Gasly has revealed a special helmet in tribute to Ayrton Senna for the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix.
Pierre Gasly’s helmet
Senna was powered by Honda from 1987 to 1992, and scored 32 of his 41 wins with their engines. He scored his first Honda-powered win at Imola circuit in the 1988 San Marino Grand Prix.
Senna died in 1994 when he crashed at the Imola circuit which is hosting this weekend’s Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix.
Gasly said he is “remembering one of my idol with this special helmet” this weekend. “Legends are never forgotten.”
Daniil Kvyat’s helmet
Daniil Kvyat, who spent much of his early career racing in Italy, also has a special helmet design for the country’s third F1 race this season.
Lando Norris’s helmet
Lando Norris is wearing a special Italian Grand Prix helmet again, although he’s swapped the colours of the tricolour compared to the version he wore in Mugello.
Antonio Giovinazzi’s helmet
Meanwhile Antonio Giovinazzi has chosen to prominently display his racing number this weekend. Alfa Romeo has confirmed he will continue to drive for them again next year, so he’ll have more opportunities to experiment with his helmet design in the 2021 F1 season.
Charles Leclerc’s helmet
Leclerc is also wearing an Italian-themed helmet for Ferrari’s third home race this season.

Wow! One of the most beautiful helmets I ever saw! That little touch with Alpha Tauris sign is awesome!

Would be even more awesome if Kvyat wears a Ratzenberger helmet

Gasly’s lid is going to get all the plaudits, but Kvyat’s design is a belter too. The leather effect is really nicely done.

Why would you wear a Senna Helmet at the very track he died at?
