Thats his sons helmet i believe.
Additionally, it was never actually black but a REALLY dark blue. The design and colours come from the London Rowing Club, with the white flashes representing oars. Graham Hill was quite the fan of rowing!

Moss without his trademark helmet at the end of the Mille Miglia. It's hard to decide which of these two pictures defines more Moss's helmet. I'm inclined for this one. What's more important, a thing or the marks it leaves behind?

Schumacher's 90s helmet was awesome, always loved white helmets. I own a replica of that one, created by CM Helmets.
