With one home drive and two home teams there are a lot of special helmet designs on the grid for this weekend’s Italian Grand Prix.
Pierre Gasly’s 2021 Italian Grand Prix helmet
Last year’s Italian Grand Prix winner Pierre Gasly has added striping in the colours of the Italian flag to a pale design incorporating his number and initials.
Yuki Tsunoda’s 2021 Italian Grand Prix helmet
Yuki Tsunoda won’t have a home race this year following the cancellation of the Japanese Grand Prix. His country’s flag is featured on top of his latest design.
Antonio Giovinazzi’s 2021 Italian Grand Prix helmet
The only home driver on the grid usually brings a special design for races in his backyard, and this weekend is no different. Bold ‘ITA’ lettering and his usual wasp motif feature on Antonio Giovinazzi’s latest lid for his fifth race on home ground in 12 months.

Carlos Sainz Jnr’s 2021 Italian Grand Prix helmet
Ferrari are one of two Italian-based teams on the grid (Sauber-run Alfa Romeo operate from Switzerland) and by far the most famous. Carlos Sainz Jnr has produced this retro-styled design blending the Italian and Spanish flags for his first Italian Grand Prix as a Ferrari driver.

The 2019 Italian Grand Prix winner has also added plenty of local colour to his helmet for this weekend’s race, though he expects it will be a difficult round for the team.
