Title: To help recognise your favourite F1 Driver their 2019 Helmet colours are here
Post by: John S on March 14, 2019, 04:41:29 PM
I only hope we can tell them apart when in the cars as Red and pink are increasingly popular.  :confused:

Also here's a separate page with them all listed to scroll through to make them easier to compare - enjoy.

I must say I like Giovinazzi's helmet with the Italian flag on it. Very striking  :good:

I voted for K-Mag's headgear ... so was pleased to see that it's an early leader with 23% ... which was nice! :)

Best Regards,
Cal :)

Honey Badger's helmet is awesome.  It is so 'different' to the rest that it is genuinely stand out.  It's ugly and beautiful at the same time. 

Giovinazzi's is a nice lid and I like Russell's due to the colour scheme, it works well.  Too many of the other helmets are fussy with bolts and go stripes to imply movement.

It will certainly stand out (if we can see it past the Halo).   On second viewing, it looks like a Seagull has dropped something on it.  I just hope that assessment doesn't "stick", or each time I look at Danny's headgear, I will think "Oh yeah, just some French Bird ..."   I won't finish that sentence for censorship reasons!!  :-[

C'mon, get your head out of the gutter Cal ... and get back to work!!!

Best Regards,
Cal :)

IMO Renault wins best and worst helmet design.  DR for the worst, Hulk for the best.

For me it has to be Ricciardo's. I am not really a big fan of his but I like his helmet.

Worst by far is Stroll's pink helmet...it's just too pink.

... and we'll never know what 'Baby Cakes' would be wearing in 2019!  :DntKnw:

I suppose you could argue whether you are judging a helmet on design, colour harmony or outright "striking" appearance.   I guess we will see which designs will become instantly recognisable, as drivers walk away from their battle damaged or unreliable tanks!!

Have to say I never realised this thread would turn into which we like best.
I failed to notice the poll on motorsport.com page, but hey it's usual on here that threads take interesting twists.

For the record I like George Russell's lid the best.  :good:
Just need to see it further up the grid - no pressure then George.  :D

I went for the Hulk. Very striking.

I like Hulk and Norris's.  Don't care for any of the rest

After careful consideration, my top 3 would be:

1) K-Mag
2) Hulk
3) Russell/Giovinazzi  ... (mainly as I feel both helmets could look pretty striking when worn out of the car)
