+ 1 on what @garns said!! Seriously, a drivers helmet is his or her identity and one should be faithful to it. There are very few drivers on the grid that actually respect their helmet designs throughout their careers.
Take Alonso for example… with the exception of 2007 (even then the design itself was the same, different colors though) has always had a similar design! Very few are true to themselves so whatever the kid does with teh helmet… to me, it´s just one of who knows how many helmets he´s used.
Heck, I could run into one of the actual helmets and take it for a replica! hahahha
