    Official drivers helmet design awards

    im putting my nomination in for Jarno Trulli's chrome dome with red splashes which he has used ever since joining toyota. Close runner up is micheal schumacheres final red helmet without the german flag on it. Not because i have anything against the german flag, its just it looked alot cleaner without it

    whats everyone elses fravorite helmet design?

    yeah webbo needs a change up! maybe the fact that redbull likes really big red bull logos on their driver's helmets will force him to make a change!

    You mean Niki Lauda's helmet



    I think Kubica and Raikkonen have the best helmets.

    I would have said Raikkonen's if he hadn't changed his 2006 helmet, but now that he has changed it, I'm not so sure I have an award to give.

    There are several that "aren't bad" but no one takes the cake for me.

    I like the chrome, too. Reminds me of the old Battlestar Galactica.

    Helmets nowadays have a too complicated paint scheme. Years ago it was reasonably easy to distinguish drivers by their helmets, while these days it's almost impossible, at least for me

    i dont think its hard to destinguish helmets at all. Look at most teams and their helmets.

    Ferrari, just look for the yellow on massa's helmet, more red and black on kimi's.
    McLaren, just look for lewis yellow and alonso's new black and white and redish helmet.
    Renault, just look for heikki's predominantly purple/blue/red/grey colour compared with the yellow and green stripes of fisichella.
    Honda, again just look for buttons big JB english style on the side, compared with barrichello's mostly white helmet.
    Toyota, easiest on the grid, ralf yellow trulli silver.
    the list goes on, bmw heidfeld blue and yellow, kubica the bright red.
    Red Bull just look for the green on webber and the scottish flag on coulthard.

    I dont honestly think it is that hard. And this is whilst being at melbourne with cars passing at 300km/h. I find it rather easy.
    Michael Schumacher - the most succesful driver in formula 1 history - ROBERT KUBICA!
