Charles Pic helmet is awful with that very phallic looking Eiffel Tower on it and Maldanados just seems messy as for the prettiest I really like Senna, Rosberg and Raikonen

The prettiest of 'em:
1) de la Rosa's
2) Senna's
3) Hülkenberg's

The ones that should be doused with gasoline and set on fire:
1) Maldonado's
2) Petrov's
3) Schumi's

Only Button, Senna, Kovalainen and Petrov's are any good. De la Rosa gets an honourable mention for not having a messy design, but I'm not a massive fan of it.

The rest are boring and generic. Jean Eric Vergne's is basically Sebastian Bourdais' with added red.

Best helmet by far is the Hulk's helmet... original, standout, and recognizable from a distance.

Like
Hulkenburg
Alonso
Hamilton
Kimi

All relatively easy to notice

Dislike
Massa - Can't stand the swirls. I wish he'd stick with his older designs
Maldonado
Glock



Vettel - He changes them every race so I don't see why they bother taking pictures of them

My vote goes to de la Rosa also, very much like the retro-style simple colour scheme.

I have to say that I've not liked Marks. It just looks immediately like he forgot his helmet, so is using the RedBull branded spare.

The two Torro Rosso drivers are going to be pretty difficult to distinguish!!! Not much difference there.

I love Raikkonen, Kovaleinen and Jenson's helmet designs!!

I like Kimi's the best (it would be so much better if it didnt have that 9 on the visor). I don't know why people put Hamilton's int he Like? Yellow + Gree + Red + Blue make for a very bad combination of colors. I know its to resemble Senna's but its not pretty. I like Buttons better, even with the asian symbols there. Kovalinen is good too.

I like Kobayashi & Buttons, but really like Alonso's, mainly because its just cool, but partly because it looks a little like a transformer :]

Seb's helmet looks nice, but can't tell whether it is for one race or the whole season.
Hope he sticks to it.

Prefer the ones with a fairly simple, cohesive colour sceme

Best:

Kimi
Senna
Jenson
Hulk
PDLR

Worst:

Di Resta
Maldonado

Just noticed that many have an extra plate at the top of the visor. Is this in response to Massa's accident?

I don't trust those designs as being the final versions for 2012, as I think Daniel has now got some white to the top of the helmet, so problem solved!

Also, here's a photo from the back. He's got the Perth skyline on it, so showing his hometown pride there. Pretty ugly IMO

Good

Button
Raikkonen
Kovalainen


Boring

Webber
Both TR drivers


Bad

Karthikeyan, looks old and rusty.
Maldonado
Glock


Confused:

Schumacher (Isn't he racing for Merc, why is he still with reds, the golden one in Spa looked brilliant)

Is angry birds sponsoring caterham or heikki? If not, it is blatant copyright misuse.

Angry Birds( Rovio company)are Heikkis personal sponsors. Later there will be some racing themes in the game and they have promised something else too which they dont reveal yet.

It would look more at home on a Moto GP than an F1 car I think, but it's nice all the same!

Helmet colour doesn't change with team colour. He had red with 7 stars for a long time and before that he had the red with blue top and the 7 stars.

Prettiest:-

1). Alonso - I love the mix of blue & yellow!

2). Schumacher - The full Red Helmet looks good!

3). Hulkenberg - Quite a different colour which makes it stand out from the rest!

4). Kovalainen - A very interesting design! great colour combination!


Ugliest:-

1). Di Resta - No good colours or design!

2). Kobayashi - The designing looks quite complicated!

3). Maldonado - Seems to be very confusing!

4). De La Rosa - The most sad looking helmet on the grid!

5). Karthikeyan - The most amateurish & dull looking helmet! He needs a sponsor for a new helmet even!

6). Glock - The designing doesn't seem to make sense!

P.S - The Red Bull & Toro Rosso helmets almost look identical if they were to be seen from a distance! Anway, they look so boring & seem to have no life in them!

Best ones in my opinion are Räikkonen, Grosjean and Kovalainen. At least the previous design that Kovalainen had was cool :)
Thoughts about the new Angry Birds design... Well... I think it's hilarious, but I wouldn't want it for myself. Suits the personality of Heikki very well though!

Best:
Schumacher
Alonso
Hamilton
Kobayashi (reminds me of Piquet Sr.!)

Worst:
Anything with a big Red Bull logo pasted to the side
Glock
Pic
Heikki's Angry Birds helmet will get old very fast

Hulkenberg's is unique... but I don't like it...

Best goes to the Angry Bird of Heikki!
Also very impressed by the subtle Aztec cues on Perez's and surprisingly by Pic's, Eiffel Tower and all.

Worst are the generic Red Bull clone helmets, bland personified.

Best designs:

Hulkenburg
Perez
Senna (obviously)
Button

The rest are just a mess.

(I wish Schumi ditched his all-red helmet - still reminds me of his days at Ferrari - and gave us his Suzuka '98 chrome beast :twisted: )

I think a lot of people are being unfair on poor Maldonado. It is not his fault that anything on him would look ugly.

Yes, both Heikki and Kimi formed a partnership with Rovio.
