Here are the special helmet designs Kimi Raikkonen, Antonio Giovinazzi and Charles Leclerc are wearing at this weekend’s Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix.
Charles LeclercCharles Leclerc with the very car he used to win in Italy two years ago. There may be an outside chance of a Ferrari home with this weekend, but there will definitely be no repeat of those delirious celebrations as fans are barred from attending this weekend’s race.
Leclerc intends his latest design as a gesture of thanks to his supporters. “This weekend’s helmet is a thank you to everyone for their support,” he said on social media.
“The welcome we receive in Italy is always so special and it’s sad that you can’t be here with us in Imola. Hopefully you will all be back in the grandstands soon.”
This may only be Antonio Giovinazzi’s 42nd grand prix but it’s already his fifth home race and he’s got another one later this year.
The native of Puglia often commemorates his home races with a special lid. His latest look embraces the peculiarly long official title of this weekend’s race, the Gran Premio Del Made In Italy E Dell’emilia Romagna, excerpts of which adorn the colourful design.
Last year Kimi Raikkonen became the most experienced Formula 1 driver of all time and he will extend his record this weekend with his 331st start. Trainer Mark Arnall is some way ahead of him, however – this is the 400th race he has worked at, which Raikkonen has acknowledged on his helmet for this weekend.
