Drivers Helmets

49 posts in this topic


<-------------Gilles Villeneuve (my avatar). I'd like that helmet even if I weren't a fan. My all-time favorite helmet.

Other notables:

Button, Hakkinen, Mario Andretti, Hunt, Peterson, Brabham (the copper one), JV

Best use of a national flag/design:

Cheever (USA), Alonso (Spain/Asturias), DC (Scotland), Stewart (Scotland/Stewart clan), Stefan Bellof (Germany)

I like the late 70's and early 80's helmet designs overall.

Nice thread, Ctrl, I hope everybody posts... :thbup:

I forgot, the GV helmet is a stunner, it almost looks evil...Very nice design!

It was just stupid of me to forget MH's helmet, one of my all time fav's. Looks like Don Johnsons boat in Miami Vice, sweet.

Monteiro, Fisichella, Rosberg, Trulli, Raikkonen are my faves of the current lot.

Gilles and Senna stand out from the past generation.

MS from 2000, both designs, Alessandro Nannini, and Al Unser Jr.'s design from 1988 to 1993. Al Unser Jr. is racing in the 2006 Indianapolis 500, my fave indy racer, he is.

Another evil looking design was Montoya's 'horns' from his rookie year. :reddevile:

I think and this is only my opinion. I think Trulli has to have one of the best looking helmet. I like the chrome look of it.

In this thread you can put forward any design you like, no matter which it is, it is much appreciated that you contribute. Just look at pumpdoc, his favourite looks like an old sock, and yet no-one complains :lol:

I have tried to find a good pitcure of Tulli's helmet but could not find one...Sorry

That's the type of 'helmut' that Rickenbacher, Ferdidnan(?), Enzo and others would've worn 'back in the day'

A few pics. Couldn't find a clear pic of the Hunt one, but I'd imagine everybody knows that one anyway..

First up, Trulli, for tvbf1. I think this style of chrome helmet was first done by Paul Tracy in CART (?).

Alonso's helmet (2004, not the mixed-up one he has now)

Stefan Bellof, pretty exciting for a German, eh ;)

Finally Eddie Cheever. I'm only a fan of his helmet.

i really like MS's helmet right now, its very well designed from an artistic standpoint i think.

and somehow i dont think fangio was waring his for protestion, more like aerodynamic help

lastly, the lid i really dislike is JV's, i just dont like that pinkish stripe, it makes me want to throw up every time i see it. its too off pink, if you are going to use pink dont have it be really grey pink

although i enjoy j. villeneuve's helmet for being distinctive, I've always asked myself what the hell was he thinking when he came up with that design, it looks like the gay rainbow!

I like that one. I'm gonna find his Domino's Pizza Helmet from 1985-1987. Those were cool looking.
