    I have designed a print based on the drovers helmets I already new and some research into some older champions which I wasn’t sure on.

    If anybody could look it over and let me know if it looks ok, if anything needs changing, and any general thoughts on it, I would be really grateful.

    Thank you

    @libertine it’s incredibly interesting to see the evolution of helmet design both in terms of shape and of patterns, and the growing sponsorship influence on them. Great job!

    It also illustrates very well just how exclusive a club the F1 World Championship Winner’s is!

    Thanks for your comments :) took quite a while to put together. And I tried to research as best I could, I just hope it is all correct!

    Very professional looking, excellent stuff! It’s good to see something like this as I feel the evolution of the crash helmet (and driver safety in general) is just as interesting as the evolution of the race car.

    Jackie Stewart looks like he had the first helmet that might have offered him some protection.

    Shouldn’t you rather include JB’s helmet with the red and blue? I mean I know he won it with the yellow-black colours when he was with Brawn, but that’s not the one really representing him.

    True, but that was for me the most eye-catching.

    I tried to represent each driver with the helmet that they won the championship in. Obviously a few drivers won multiple times. But that was the theme I was going for rather than the more iconic helmets that may represent them. Thanks for the comments though, its nice to see other peoples view on my work.

    I like it a lot.
    Reminds me of another thing. In the late 80′s I got a prospectus for one of the Hungarian GP’s and there was a nice chart of all drivers’ helmets. I cherished it for many years. About a year ago I searched the internet for something similar for other seasons, but to no avail. Perhaps I was not good enough, does anyone know of such a thing?

    Vettels helmet I think was this seasons. The idea being that its the most current. Would you suggest a more iconic helmet for Vettel @xjr15jaaag ?
