With the 2021 season fast approaching, drivers have started to share photos of their new lid designs. We’ve put together a gallery of all the helmet designs confirmed so far, and will update the article as more are made available.
Let us know your favourite in the comments below!
It’s fair to say that fans are normally most excited to see what kind of helmet design Daniel Ricciardo brings to the table. Since departing Red Bull, his helmet designs have always been totally wacky and different to all others on the grid. This year he didn’t disappoint.
New teammate Lando Norris kept his design fairly similar to what he’s had in the past, continuing to keep a primarily neon yellow design.
Both Ferrari drivers have different designs this year.
New signing Carlos Sainz has a similar colour scheme on his new lid to previous years – the red and yellow a tribute to his home country of Spain. Overall, Sainz’s helmet contains a darker base compared to his 2020 design and plenty of Ferrari sponsors on his new helmet.
Charles Leclerc has opted for a black and white print, with the Monaco flag stripe remaining down the helmet’s centre.

The pairing at Alfa Romeo might be the same for 2021, but the helmet designs have changed and look great.
Once again, Antonio Giovinazzi has a red, white and green design to pay homage to his Italian roots. We love the clean lines on this helmet, and it has to be said Gio always delivers stunning designs.
For Kimi, a bold and colourful design that looks almost cartoonish. It still features the famous ‘Iceman’ writing on the back, but this year, his two children’s names, ‘Rianna and Robin’, are more visible.

At Red Bull, Max Verstappen has kept things very simple and done a ‘copy and paste’ job from his 2020 helmet.
On the other side of the garage, Sergio Perez has finally been able to go back to his traditional neon yellow racing helmet. “As you know, yellow has always been my colour but in the past I had to wear pink, I really hope you like it,” he told fans on social media.
‘Never give up’ is also displayed on the back, which makes for a nice touch.
Now for a game of spot the difference. Over at AlphaTauri, both drivers have gone for an orange-red base colour with the large blue ‘AlphaTauri’ wrap around being present on both helmets.
Gasly’s helmet also contains a pattern that has been created using his ‘PG’ driver logo, his racing number (10) and contains a small tribute to his compatriot and friend Anthoine Hubert.
