Red Bull drivers Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez are sporting special helmet designs for the first of two consecutive races at the track which bears the team’s name.

It’s the first of three races the team can count as home events. As well as two races in Austria, the following round will take place at Silverstone, half an hour’s drive from the team’s base in Milton Keynes.

Three-times world champion Niki Lauda and Austria’s other title-winner, Jochen Rindt, are named on Verstappen’s new, day-glo yellow helmet design for this weekend’s race.

Perez has also incorporated the colours of the Austrian flag alongside his more familiar Mexican design, with a hand-stitching effect around the ever-present Red Bull logos.

    What God awful designs

    1. I agree, so messy.. I’m strongly in favor of ‘clean’ designs.

      To be more constructive though: which designs do you like then?

  2. Checo’s is a bit better,but stil…

  3. Weird. It’s like they switched colors on the top. Will be strange picking them out this weekend.

  4. Somewhat as if they switched around their standard designs. Not bad, but I still prefer their regular ones.

  5. Good god these things are out of control

  6. Does Perez’s remind anyone else of Marc Marquez and his ‘brand’?

    Also nice touch for the two champions from Max.
