F1 is back in the USA baaaaby, and drivers up and down the grid are keen to show their love for all things stars and stripes. We can’t blame them though, and some of these racing helmet designs are a work of art 👏
Lando has well and truly embraced all things US with his helmet this weekend. The old school style is giving us big Evel Knievel vibes and certainly embraces all things red, white and blue. The design also features the new ‘M’ McLaren logo the team are using this weekend.

You can always rely on Norris to provide us with a unique racing helmet design!
Howdy partner! George Russell has gone for a Sheriff themed racing helmet this weekend. The wood-look features a traditional badge and is quite the change from his usual blue and red design. Very creative!

Bottas has gone for something a little bit different this weekend, with his girlfriend once again designing a one-off helmet for him. The design is inspired by the local street art and looks seriously cool!

We all knew coming into Austin, that this is Danny Ric’s territory. This year he’s delivered the goods again and will be running a special tribute racing helmet to NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt Sr. Seriously, what a beauty!

Now, we have yet to see the full design for this one but from the sneak peak, WE ARE OBSESSED. This space-themed design was chosen by fans and looks to be a stunning design that showcases the universe and various planets.

The AlphaTauri driver has been fully embracing all things fall. Tsunoda has gone for a very autumnal theme with a lovely range of leaves covering the navy blue background of the helmet. It’s a little different to others out there, but the colours look awesome on the matte design.

Alpine’s Fernando Alonso has used this weekend as an opportunity to raise awareness of the La Palma volcanic eruption that has forced 7,000 out of their homes. The eruption on the Canary Island has been impacting local residents for over a month now, so Alonso has had a helmet designed to support those affected.
