As very often in Monaco, the pilots provided specific designs for their helmets, in order to mark the passage in the Principality. The stage local, Charles Leclerc, obviously presented a unique design. The all-red Ferrari driver’s helmet becomes red and white, in honor of the Monegasque flag.

Monaco helmet ‼️ a collaboration with @danielarsham – inspired by my favorite crystal, amethyst. We’ve created a racing helmet and sculpture in its signature style – as if it were a relic in a museum 1,000 years from now. The sculpture will be sold for the benefit @mission44 ✨ pic.twitter.com/e77ua5PM5X

Pierre Gasly wants to shine in Monaco
Pierre Gasly has a similar design to the one he usually has on his helmet, but the red and the patterns on the top of the helmet all change to gold. Indeed, his helmet is not missed, and for once we can easily differentiate it from that of his teammate.

A ‘double-sided’ helmet for Norris
Lando Norris presented a three-faceted helmet. The left part resumes its classic design, with less fluorescent yellow and blue but more present patterns. A red line crosses the helmet and separates a white right part, in homage to Bruce McLaren, with simply his patterns in light print.
