Fernando Alonso sported what looks like an updated helmet design for 2010 at Ferrari’s media event today.
The design features his usual blue and yellow – a nod to his home city Oviedo – mixed with Ferrari red and, of course, the team’s sponsors’ logos.
Here’s another angle on the design (taken while he gets a big hug from Fisichella):
I’m a bit old-fashioned – I like to see drivers sticking with the same design no matter who they drive for. But it seems almost every driver these days bring out a new design when they change teams and some seem to switch styles almost every race – like Sebastian Vettel last year.
Alonso’s new helmet didn’t bring him any luck, though: he crashed out of the race one lap from the end. More on that here: Massa second in Ferrari ice kart race as Alonso crashes
What do you think of Alonso’s new design? Here’s his 2009 skid lid for comparison:
