    I’m definitely a fan of D’Ambrosio’s helmet.

    Gotta love the old banking, it’s so atmospheric.

    I wish they’d leave the deadly old sections of track in place at other venues. At Silverstone, Bridge corner is still there (until they stick a hotel on it or whatever), and you can see why they wouldn’t run the bikes through there! But it’s a pity they haven’t left a reminder of the old Becketts corner behind the grandstand, for example.

    Don’t ask me why but I fell in love with Ma Qing Hua’s helmet. Impressive IMO.

      I like it, too. Mostly because I think it’s really simple. It’s kind of a throwback to the Hakkinen and Prost helmets that weren’t dominated by intricate graphics and sponsor colours.

    I’m fairly disappointed with D’Ambrosio’s helmet, his 2011 was fantastic.

    That’s a nice helmet from Ma. Reminds me of Kubica’s.

    I like Ma Qing Hua helmet, but I love Kimi’s shades.
    Also, I like the fact that unlike many other teams merchandise, the Lotus cap actually has the team logo on the front.

    • I know what you mean, it really annoys me how I wear my McLaren cap everyday at work, and most people think I REALLY like vodafone, or its to do with football…. there is only the odd F1 fan who actually knows what it is :(

      Where as if I had a Ferrari cap… everyone would recognise what it was

    Ah, the old banking. I was lucky enough to get on it last year :)
