Nah it’s simple. It represents all the purple sectors he’s going to achieve!

Nah, it's simple, it replaces all the purple sectors he should have been driving. :wink:
Before I get a downvote ...... I am joking.

The two McLaren helmets are fantastic.

Thinking again about Hamilton- isn't it now really similar to Bottas in color and pattern? Could be tough to tell them apart.

Do people still look for the helmet to tell them apart ? I mean the MASSIVE numbers on the cars and the T-Cam colours are much much easier to tell the difference anyway now with the Halo.

Also like to add, Just saw Lewis in the car today in some pics, and the helmet colour clashing with the car as you said is totally wrong.

True! With the halo, it's more difficult anyway as you say, but i have to admit I still look for helmet colour first- at least on the Mercs the driver numbers are usually fairly clear, but on a lot of the cars not so easy to spot. I think F1 could do more to make sure all driver numbers on cars are clearer than they are now.

Always hated when they switched from the yellow and red T bars to the black and red. In longer tv shots it's impossible to see the driver's helmet but it was always easy to differentiate between yellow and red. The black makes it a lot harder, don't remember when they switched but it's been a few years now. 3?

Black blends in, Neon Red stands out.
