Helmets are vital for an F1 driver. Not only do they keep them safe, but they’re also like tiny pieces of art that the drivers can use to express their personalities. They become part of that person and make it so much easier for us to recognise them from afar. And a new season calls for new helmet designs!
Although we usually get a whole array of different lids from race to race, they will still have a ‘main’ season helmet. We’ve already been treated to most of them; thankfully, they are more colourful than their respective cars. They are looking 👌

New season, new helmet 🔥
For this year’s helmet I wanted to go back to the roots a bit more, with a more old-school design.
Looking forward to racing with this one 👌

We are still waiting for some official photos of his 2023 helmet, but from the glimpses we have seen: it’s a slightly modified version of the 2022 lid.

Again, we are still awaiting some images of Kevin’s 2023 helmet. Testing starts TOMORROW. Surely we’ll get some before then? We do have this from the Haas shakedown, if you squint, you can just about make it out. Maybe.
Nico. Come on. It’s your return. GIVE US PROPER PHOTOS OF YOUR HELMET. Is this a Haas thing? Again, we have this from the shakedown, but we’re still waiting for an official drop.
