The second qualifying session of 2013 was rather like the first – rain made life difficult for the drivers and Sebastian Vettel planted the Red Bull on pole.

Here’s pictures from qualifying and final practice for the Malaysian Grand Prix.

  1. Oh, my god. He wore his 4th helmet in 2013. Vettel. That’s what I was talking about.

    1. I’m not sure, but I believe he changed helmets between Q2 and Q3.

      1. @andae23 he did change helmets but i am not entirely sure the reason as why. I think it had something to do with the incoming rain or something and the new helmet had a more visor more suited to the wet weather. Correct me if i am wrong.

        1. Yeah, that’s correct.

    2. @sigman1998@andae23‘s right, he changed back to his Melbourne blue helmet because it had the rain visors et all. I think he’s only on his second actually because wasn’t the Q1/2 helemt one he debuted also in Australia?

    3. He’s only(?) used three different helmets in this season.
      The chrome-purple one, throughout winter testing and MAL FP1-3 & Q1-2
      The blue one, a couple of days in Barcelona and in AUS Q1-3 & race, MAL Q3
      The white one – Baumgartner tribute helmet, AUS FP1-3
      And yes, he switched to the blue helmet between Q2&3 today because of the wet track conditions.

    4. Just joking of cource. Thanks @andae23 for correcting me.

  2. One thing that would be cool, is if Vettel collaborated with local artists to create his helmet designs. Just puttin’ it out there :)

  3. For God Sake! I don’t understand all these pointless complains about him having many helmets, let him have 10/weekend if he wants! What is your problem? At least it won’t get boring.

  4. Are there any pictures of all these new helmets? I’ve sen the purple one but not the others.

  5. I still like the look of the Mclaren, it’s just that that damn rearwing keeps reminding me of there not being a new episode of Tooned after Australia! There had better be a new one soon! :P Then McLaren are at least doing thát right. :P

  6. Seems McLaren won’t bring new Tooned episodes untill Spain. To bad…
