Nice! Combines some bold, simple shapes with some of the more complex patterns that have become the norm.
Favourite driver: Lando Norris
Favourite team: McLaren

Turned down the chance to meet Vettel at Silverstone in 2007. He was a test driver at the time and I didn't think it was worth queuing!! 🤦🏻‍♂️

apparently the arrows symbol on his helmet is used by the Hungarian neo-fascist movement as their take on the swastika. This might be a problem for at least the Hungarian GP.

Now drivers are racist for having an arrow painted on their helmet. Welcome to 2021.

No, he is not saying that. Just that it might be misused in Hungary by those groups. That might be an unwanted side effect.
Controversy does not have a short memory.
