    @fixy Helmet pictures are added to the driver biographies here as they become available:

    I’m hopeful that the McLaren livery may only be an iterim livery after seeing Button and to a lesser extent Magnussen’s helmet.

    Even Alonso’s helmet has got a large white section on it this year as well, so I think we could see a return to the white & red/orange car. Maybe not in testing, but hopefully it will be in Melbourne.

    After Vettel’s disappointing [too] simple design, here’s Raikkonen‘s: lots of black, no more yellow. The Iceman is back!

    It’s been around for a while but it has slipped past me until now. I just stumbled upon Kubica’s 2014 helmet from Bell; any ideas if he has actually used it or not?

    Esteban Gutierrez and Jean-Eric Vergne have revealed their Ferrari helmets.

    Are either of those actually going to get much use though?

    Vergne will probably use that helmet in Formula E just like Buemi and his Redbull helmet.

    Is Vergne allowed to continue with Formula E though, now he has a contract with Ferrari, and the season is beginning?

    Marc Gené’s helmet has also surfaced: as I anticipated, all Ferrari drivers have transitioned from Schuberth to Bell helmets, with the exception of Vettel who is using an Arai.

    Plus, a decent shot of Kimi’s lid.
    Back to helmet brands, Nasr and Palmer have used a Stilo helmet in testing, which was last used by Valsecchi at Lotus (both Lotuses).

    @Strontium Sure, Gene’s also racing with Nissan, and Vergne’s main work is on the simulator, not travelling around the world with the team like Gutierrez as a third driver.

    K-Mag’s helmet ( http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2015/02/Kevin-Magnussen-McLaren-2015-F1-testing-Barcelona.jpg ) looked different to the one in this post http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/groups/f1/forum/topic/the-helmet-thread/page/18/#post-291084

    Anyone find a decent picture of it? The colour scheme looks really nice, clean design too.

    After testing with a plain carbon fiber helmet in the past weeks, Perez has debuted his design on a Schuberth SF1: he previously wore an Arai.

    PS: @george from that shot it appears he has changed to a darker shade of red, nothing else jumps to the eye.

    I have long wished for a web database of all drivers’ helmets (for all years) where one could view them by drivers to see changes or by seasons. Since no-one seems to find the time (including me), I did the second best and made a simple list of “notable” helmets. You can find it here:
    http://math.feld.cvut.cz/habala/misc/F1helmets.htm
    You are welcome to download it to your computer, who knows how long I will be able to keep it on the machine.

    If you feel that some helmet should really be there, just send me a jpeg with height 100 and white background :-).

    @ph you can add Kimi helmets or at least one Seb’s helmet there!
