F1 Drivers Show Off New Helmets To Celebrate Miami Grand Prix
Ahead of the first ever Miami Grand Prix this weekend, many of the drivers took the opportunity to change their regular helmets for new designs.
2021 World Champion, Max Verstappen, has gone for a palm tree and neon design which is a route a lot of the drivers have gone down.

Norris has opted for a basketball theme for his helmet which is weirdly realistic with his name on the back in the typical basketball jersey font.

As we mentioned, many designs have included the Miami colours and palm trees, which are a large part of Alonso’s design.
Alfa Romeo driver, Zhou Guanyu, has opted for a ‘Space Jam’ theme and we are here for it.
Tsunoda’s design is a bit more understated with a graffiti design that has been created by Remote (Jay Bellicchi).

Ricciardo is known for his amazing sense of humour and his helmet doesn’t disappoint with a design inspired by ‘Ace Ventura: Pet Detective’. Ricciardo has branded himself “pet detective” on the side and then on the back of the helmet it says “MISSING: Snowflake” above a photo of a dolphin. Below the dolphin it reads “If found, return to Heinz Getwellvet”.
Okay, I like it, Picasso. 🎨🌸🏝

Bottas took to Twitter to let his fans know that he has got three new helmet designs rather than just one “because it’s Miami”.
Not 1 but 3.. because it’s Miami 🇺🇸
