The design looks like something a 10-year-old girl came up with, it's just lacking some pink. But I'm sure it will serve the purpose of protecting his head just fine. :-P

i like it but not sure about the red on it though, before it seemed solid and for a reason it seems to have been splashed on as an after thought, he has kept his homage to senna but made it more his own style, maybe part of him growing as a person or just distancing himself from his McLaren days



The problem with Lewis' design is the Monster "logo" and font kinda destroys the clean look ......

Massa's and Button's are quite different to what the started out with.

Well Webbers helmet has changed slightly over the years but the main design has remained the same

Its the silver edged red part that completely kills the Lewis design. It was just bad, but with that it is terrible.

JLF usually do good designs, I think its the worst design i've seen in F1 in a long time.

It's really not that bad. More cluttered but the worst?

It is a matter of opinion of course, but ..well, villeneuve.

Irvine's Jaguar design belongs in Stringfellows

Vettel's had some real howlers. The one with lights last year was pretty horrific.

Anyway, OT - Some great looking helmets so far. The good thing with all these new drivers is we get to see some new designs too!

I'm surprised Lewis was able to keep using an Arai with Mercedes. Schuberth is a big time technical partner for Merc and Ferrari. Alonso was a long time Arai user and had to switch to Schuberth when he went to Ferrari.

I don't care for Lewis' new design either. Too busy.

i have heard him say himself that he has always used a yellow green helmet because he always worshipped senna and that it is comprises of the flag colours of Grenada and that his dad demanded he wore a brightly coloured helmet so he could spot him when racing karts so those colours seemed to be the obvious choice.

I was expecting that, too. But I'm glad he's stuck with Arai as they're the nicest shaped F1 helmet. Schuberth are second and those horrible bulbous Bell ones with the "bib" are the worst looking.

Well, and this is what annoys me about Hamilton at times, he has said in some interviews he and his dad chose it so it would be easier to pick him out when he was karting. However in other interviews he's said his hero was Senna so he picked it as a tribute (or words to that effect).

In an early interview (when he was a teenager) he said his main heroes were Schumacher, Coulthard and Häkkinen and he'd like to be racing against them in a few years. Since he's entered F1 he seems to deny being a fan of Schumi's as it's suited him. It's almost like now he's made it he comes across a bit more arrogant or perhaps he's always said what sounded best to the interviewer at the time - hence the two differing helmet stories.

Both of those helmet stories are true, confirmed numerous times in numerous interviews.

Last year Hammy said that he always looked up to Kimi too.
I was surprised to hear that.

Estaban and Hulkenberg's helmets are beautiful. Hamilton's I didn't find as repulsive as people are making out... though I'm not a fan of the silver edging on everything. Kimi and Romain's are nice too. Webber's is... well its the same which is good.
Di Resta's is my least favourite, it just looks uninteresting and forgettable, like Di Resta really. Poor guy, even his helmet is uninteresting. I want to see if Massa will keep the red helmet from Brazil, he really should, it was lovely.

unfortunately Ferrari don't usually give pr shots of their helmets so will have to wait until testing tomorrow i guess.

As AngusWolfe said above, it may be really hard to tell Rosberg and Hamilton apart when watching on the telly...both helmets are predominantly yellow with similar "monster" sponsoring around the crown.
