    Interesting story over on the official Nico Rosberg website at the moment, someone stole one of his helmets way back at the Nurburgring:

    Some clear shots of the guy with helmet serial info if you by any chance trade in helmets.

    I think the guy is just careless. If Vettel can get new helmets for almost every race, by retiring winning ones, then why is it so difficult for this flipping rich German to get some new ones?

    Its marketing, Nico has done it before

    @aish That’s not the point: if someone steals one of your belongings, then of course you put in effort to get it back, right?

    What I’m concerned about here is how somebody managed to get into a garage. If it is that easy, what is stopping someone from being sent in as a scout to examine the cars, as a means of cheating?

    I think it was Lewis. He’s been wearing a helmet that looks just like Nico’s…
    When you get a replacement one, Nico, paint it a different colour!

    agree with @vettel1

    If it was really stolen from the Garage, then tought luck for being so careless… how come a random guy runs into a F1 team garage, grabs one of their driver’s helmets and leaves without anyone stopping him or noticing in time?

    No no, this isn’t marketing… AAAAT ALLL !!! be inventive, Merc ! Williams did it before !

    If this happened in July (as the images and article state) why is it just being made public by Nico (well his handlers) now and why was there no mention of it at all (atleast that I remember) during the German GP?

    If it was legit stolen in July then that helmet has been sold the most it’s going to be sold and is now sitting in somebodies collection who likely knows it’s stolen and don’t care.

    Just noticed I managed to spell thief incorrectly. Embarrassing.

    “I think it was Lewis. He’s been wearing a helmet that looks just like Nico’s…”
    HAHAHA
    Hamilton’s fault? Or blame the black guy? XD

    @andae23: Yeah, I agree. But this is big news and I wonder if Ted brought this up in any of his notebooks, he wouldn’t kid around with Sky coverage.
