If The 2017 F1 Grid Was Racing In The 1970s Their Helmets Might Have Looked Something Like This

Graphic designer Sean Bull has taken the helmets of the 2017 F1 grid and turned them into glorious minimalist 1970s designs

Modern helmet designs feature amazing levels of detail and intricacy as drivers seem to go for ever more elaborate concepts. But whilst they’re pretty cool, their complexity means they somewhat lack the iconic simplicity of helmet designs from, say, the 1970s.

With that in mind, graphic designer Sean Bull has taken the 2017 grid and reimagined each driver’s helmet with a more minimalist style - both in terms of design and the helmet itself - and the results are absolutely top notch.
