Looks like Hamilton has started a trend in Yellow!

That is somewhat awesome.

Lacks colour, boring.


I disagree, that is going to look stunning next to green overalls and in that car

+1

I like it, plus it'll blend in well with the green of the car.


The best helmet i have seen!!!!!

With de la Rosa gone and Hamilton changing the design, I think only Webber has has original helmet design, correct me if wrong.

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

Minardi:

Jaguar:

Williams:

Red Bull 2007-2008:

Red Bull 2009-2011:

Red Bull 2012:

Well here is Webber's 2013 Helmet

Compare to his 2012 Helmet

Vettels, well there's no real point in showing, it will change at least 15 more times before the season starts.



Not many people know this, but Vettel's helmet always had a template - his top side of the helmet almost never changes - just different colors

And some of vettel's helmet looks very good

And how many yellow helmets were there every season until now? Hay maybe I am wrong but there does seem to be an awful lot of yellow around for 2013.

Perez had yellow on his helmet in 2012. Hamilton has done since 2007, Rosberg has had yellow on his since he started in 06, Razia is Brazilian so his yellow ness is understandable.

Well in my opinion, Lewis' helmet looks hideous up close. Too cluttered and the colors just don't work. His pops will have no problem spotting him on track though.

Van der Garde and Gutierrez have great helmet designs! Kimi's helmets always look great. Lovin' that matte finish!

And I thought that Gutierez's was beautiful. Man, this one (for me) is probably the best looking helmet I have seen in the past few years 8O.

Big fan of the Sauber guys' helmets, but Kimi's helmet is my favourite so far. Grosjean' is a bit meh.

Yup. That is a simple yet great looking helmet design. Only one that is a little strange is Hamilton's. Not feeling the design of it.

While pretty darn cool, the application of comic book cell art is not a new thing. Back a few years ago Lazering on Paintball gun finishes became the thing to do and one guy paid out the whazoo to have this done to his $1500 gun…

Initially Otis did these two which inspired that Marker above…

Anyone got any ideas how much these teams pay for these helmets? I a sure much more than he standard equipment that these companies sell to the mortals!

Schuberth Helmets were said to cost $12,000, Arai $7,500 and Bell about $5,600. This is not including paint and graphics which is usually commissioned by private artists and they tend to use between 12 - 16 each season in the name of safety as it is difficult to tell if any damage was caused to the gelcoat by debris.
