I don't get it :wtf:
Gasly swoped his helmet (Chinese, France, Hubert & Japan) 4 times this year (not included switch RBR to STR)
Kvyat one time (Monza looks almost his normal helmet design) and he may not do a swop :shock:

Verstappen 3 times but this is valid because sponsor reason supermarket JUMBO(Yellow)

A great read on Motorsport.com about Schuberth helmet company and why Max switched to Schuberth from Arai [which Adrian Newey prefers]
Insight: The full story of why Verstappen switched F1 helmets

It really does seem that many drivers have had multiple helmet changes this year, Kvyat must really feel victimized!

From what I understand, if the change is relatively minor, it's usually allowed. It's only the full scheme changes that are limited. Personally, I wish they had freedom back again. I used to like Vettel's helmet designs a lot.
