Jean-Eric Vergne helmet, Singapore, 2013

Three F1 drivers have donned special helmets for this weekend’s race in Singapore. Here’s a closer look at what they’re wearing.

Lewis Hamilton is sporting a white design similar to the one he used last year. Giedo van der Garde has also traded his usual colours for a white helmet.

Taking advantage of Singapore’s unique night race, Jean-Eric Vergne has a helmet which glows in the dark:

  1. Jev’s helmet glows in the dark…handy if the lights fail for some reason.

    1. I like his design.

  2. Got to admit, both Hamilton and Van Der Garde’s helmets look pretty cool. I like the simplicity of it.
    As for JEV, I’m going to be paying close attention on him to see if the glow in the dark works.

    1. Not sure I like Hamiltons, but I’d be glad if he keeps it so we have an easier time recognizing who it is we are looking at (him or Nico).

      I like VdGardes and JEVs

      1. @bascb And that was a much easier race to tell the mercedes apart for sure!

  3. They’re all really cool, actually. Not usually a fan of changes, but yeah, I like these!

  4. JEV’s helmet looks very TRON like, I really like it

    1. That was my first thought, too. Looks really sleek. Definitely diggin’ the look.

  5. van der Garde has always had some nice looking helmets. This one is no exception.

  6. Where is Vettels helmet?
    I swear he was wearing a different helmet during quali…

    1. This is about special helmets. A new Vettel helmet is as special as me changing socks each day.

  7. Hamilton’s helmet looks fantastic. Nice, uncluttered and the white makes it really stand out. I actually have preferred his white helmets from Singapore 2012 and this year more so than his normal yellow helmet.

  8. On the BBC R5L commentary on Friday, Jennie Gow said that Jenson Button has a new helmet design for this weekend. I’ve not seen it in any of the TV coverage so far…?

  9. Supposedly the F1 technical committee is looking into a ban on the constant helmet design changes and considering allowing one change per season. On would think they have more important issues to ponder.

  10. Loving Vergne’s helmet, that’s so TRON’esque.

    Next year they should combine this helmet with a suit like this: :D

    Quite flashy, wouldn’t you agree?
