Alonso to celebrate points record on Indian GP helmet

2013 Indian Grand Prix

Fernando Alonso helmet, 2013 Indian Grand PrixFernando Alonso will mark his record F1 points tally with a special helmet design for the Indian Grand Prix.

Alonso became F1’s all-time highest points scorer at the Japanese Grand Prix, reaching a tally of 1,571 points, surpassing Michael Schumacher’s previous record of 1,566.

The two totals don’t bear direct comparison as the value of different finishing positions has changed many times in F1 history. For example a win was originally value at eight points, Schumacher scored ten for each of his 91 victories, and 25 points has been given to race winners since 2010.

Alonso’s helmet also carries a message of thanks to his fans in English, French and Italian.

“To see my name leading the points record for a sport like Formula One is something I never imagined,” said Alonso after claiming the record in Japan. “Thanks to everyone!”

    Next it’ll be Maldonaldo with a “Most Race Cars Crashed in a Career” helmet with a debris littered livery. Or Max Chilton’s famed “Most Times Lapped in Career” helmet with a blue flag flying unproudly from it’s top.

    …let’s keep the liveries and the champagne for something ACTUALLY important. Like the day that someone not named Sebastien Vettel wins a WDC.
