odd, he was sporting a fairly different pink-white helmet during 'testíng'
Dumpster sounds so much more classy. It's the diamond of the cesspools.

I hope it's this one, nothing official yet.
This pic was posted by his designer though.

this was probably taken shortly after the BWT deal. His pink helmet was probably in the shop when this was taken. Hopefully im wrong

This was the shooting for the launch of Valkyrie.
They just Photoshopped (in not a fitine way) the Lime in Pink.
At the end, probably the Pink Helmet was only for the Filming Day, for promoting images for the sponsor.
AM is doing a huge marketing job and it seems not properly in the line show their WC driver with a completely "thank u for the money" helmet in the Season.

I really hope so. The white with the German flag is an all time classic.

The bwt design helmet on the other hand and these pink shoulder pads on the overalls are absolutely hideous.

He knows he's in his last straw of his F1 career so he thinks people care.

That's because Mark Antar designed it based on this earlier concept. He said on Reddit it had caught Stroll's attention and he wanted something similar (source [1], [2]).

Looks like Vettel’s helmet at AM is rapidly evolving with the signing of more sponsors. At the fitting he has a clean helmet, before the BWT singing a normal design with a sponsor halo and at the shakedown a pink BWT. Stroll’s filming day helmet still looks like the seat fitting one, without all the stuff like the sponsor halo. Maybe BWT has a contract having the drivers wear pink helmets.

Vettel has kids to feed so I can see why he's selling it up.

Yeah, you have to feel for poor Vettel. Must be hard feeding his family on just a few tens of millions 😂 😂 😂
Lando Norris: "Such a great driver"
Daniel Ricciardo: "Darren" 🤣
