Hamilton commissioned artist Mad Dog Jones to create his latest design. It incorporates many of his familiar slogans and personal causes, including the upraised fist signifying the Black Lives Matter movement, a recycling logo, his timing screen acryonym ‘HAM’ and ‘Still I Rise’ slogan.

It also includes the names of track features at Silverstone, which includes the recently renamed start/finish straight, now known as the Hamilton straight.

  1. I like Norris’ design the most.

  2. I like Hamilton’s helmet. Has a 90s video game feel to it.
    Don’t mind if he reuses that multiple times.

    1. From afar kind looks like a typical British bike helmet. I like it too.

    Norris needs to get rid of his too-flashy-it-hurts usual design, and go for something in just one color. Just as what Seb did during his Ferrari times. That white helmet with his flag stripe was iconic! Now his BWT iteration is not so good.
