    bit boring if i’m honest haha, as for tomorrow, i hope it’s dry for qualifying, then for the race the first 6 or so laps are wet. would make a real race and be a true test of skill.

    This helmet goes a lot better with the Mercedes. The Red helmet was only chosen to differentiate himself from Barrichello whilst at Ferrari, and looked a lot better in that car than in the Silver Arrows. I still prefer Schumacher’s original 1991-2000 helmet design, but even had he used this since his comeback it would have been an improvement on the red one.

    That is one ugly helmet!!
    Nothing works here, those big black monster lines are just horrible, very bad design.

    First impression: Why is a mechanic driving Michael’s Mercedes?
