He needed a good freshen up of his helmet design and this does a very good job of that….something a bit different but still some clear continuity with his old design.. I also think it beds in nicely with the monster logo and probably the entire Mercedes design ethos… I foresee one problem though; how will we tell him apart from Nico in the tee cam view?
I quite like it actually, it’ll take a bit of getting used to though. I’ve read that Lewis thought his old design was a bit “old hat”, so it’s nice to see he’s freshened it up without totally overhauling it.
I liked the old one better, but I somehow feel this new one is closer to Lewis’ personality and taste now compared to the old one. I think I’d like the new one a LOT better if the light green isn’t there.
I’d also LOVE Nico to switch back to yellow and blue. Would make it easier to differentiate their helmets too.
