I can not find a thread about the designs that will be used to protect the drivers head for this season.

This one is the supposed one to be used by Checo Perez

It looks good :nod:

Glad Grosjean's helmet is now a different colour to Kimi's, both of them being black threw me a few times last season!

Here is DiResta's new helmet. Same design, new colors:

Am I the only one who can identify every driver for each team instantly?

Kimi's Helmet was predominantly WHITE and Romain's predominantly BLACK. Don't see how anyone could have a difficult time distinguishing between them.

Kind of like Perez's design but the color seems a bit too pale and the design a bit plain for my tastes.

Last year in RB, Ferrari, Mclaren and Mercedes, it is easy to distinguish between two drivers by knowing the one with yellow helmet (Webber,Massa,Hamilton,Rosberg).

Lotus & Sauber : white are Kimi & Perez
FI & HRT: black on top are Hulkenburg & Pedro
Williams : easy, Brazil flag stripe is Senna
Caterham : Fire red + bird face is Heikki

It is hard to distinguish the drivers of STR and Marussia from distance because their helmet are alike.

Yeah I had no problem's differentiating between Kimi's and Romain's. The only time I can recall not being able to tell between two drivers is Schu and Barrichello in early 2000. Although in that case the driver in front was usually Schu ;)

Heh, good thing too as I like the red 2000-today design!

I love the Kimi 2013 design. I'm really a sucker for exactly the right shade of red!

I do prefer the 'matt' effect that Kimi's using there, rather than the glossy one most drivers seem to go for.

I love that Kimi uses his car no. On his helmet, just because i like the number 7 and the number 9. I will accept him having a terrible season if it means we get 13 next year xD

Isn't there a pic of Hamilton's helmet floating around this very forum?

They don't normally use 13. When was the last time 13 was in use?

Sorry, that was me having a blonde moment, you're right they don't. I think every time they used it the driver DNF'd every race or something.

There was a fake/mockup but not a real one - doubt we'll see it until the launch.

The superstition that 13 is an "unlucky" number is of long standing and since the system of fixed race numbers was introduced in 1974, 13 has only been used by one driver in one season. That was Divina Galica in 1976 and she DNQ'd in all her races (mind you, she was only entered for one race).

Was someone sick on it when they painted it? Awful design. The old one was at least organised and sleek. That, well that is just a mess.

Even worse he appears to be promoting his twitter feed under the visor... Guess he'll be using it more often this year. Merc's telemetry team will be worried.

Get well soon Schumi. Keep fighting as hard as we know you can. Thinking of Corinna, Gina-Maria, Mick and the rest of the Schumacher family.

Agreed. If the green was the metallic he had last year it'd look much more appealing. The red section looks wrong broken up the way it is too. I miss the simple but elegant design he entered F1 with in 07. This looks like something a 14 year old karter would use.

Looks like Monster applied some alcohol to their recipe...80 proof...and the paint guy tested it.
Oh well, all is debatable. At least it will be easy to identify Hamilton.

Not too bad I quite like it...the yellow looks similar to Rosberg's. Are they both gonna have a yellow helmet? That'd be confusing.

Perez had yellow on his helmet last year. No one is copying anyone, I didn't know Hamilton had the copyright on a yellow helmet. Better tell Rosberg he's in breach too then...

Ironic that Hamilton fans are accusing others of copying his helmet design when there are questions over whether Hamilton copied Senna's. I know his dad said he didn't but there was clearly some influence there. Plenty drivers have done it in the past.

Lewis had a classic helmet design before he started messing with it around 2011/12. This 13 one is absolutely awful. Not a fan of modern helmet design. Jensons and Lewis' pre 2011 designs were the best modern ones.

Most are congested and awful now.

Alonso's is too cluttered for me these days, his 2003 Renault one was nice. Webber's is simple from a colour POV but when you look closer it is layered and a tad cluttered. Let's not mention Vettel, even though he has had some stunners over the years. Button's looks edgy but simple still. Rosberg's was nice before he changed it at Merc in 2010, he should have kept the blue. Massa's has never been nice IMO, I loved the red version he used in Brazil 12 though. Raikkonen changes his every year now, preferred last season's though, it looked clean and cool. RoGro's is too busy but nice colours. Di Resta's always has too many weird colours. Hulk's is alright. The STR drivers are just Red Bull cans with a splash of colour. I can't remember what the rest look like now.

Interesting that he says H.A.M like that.. I've heard that used in the past by some Crossfit athletes and it stands for "Hard as a mother******". :D

It's only a bloody helmet some people need to calm down. Personally I like it but not as much as his helmet from 2007-2010, that's where it ends for me.

Shows you we need some action on the track to start soon if people are prepared to argue over helmet designs!

I think it's a nice helmet.

So far my favorite's are:
Kimi
Lewis
Checo

I've always liked Jenson's Macca lid, and I'm sure this year will be no different. But I haven't seen it yet

Probably be the same as last year, I like his design with the flag and occasionally he has had some writing on the top. Quite simple but cool at the same time.
