For the entirety of his F1 career to date, Daniel Ricciardo’s helmet design has reflected the colours of Red Bull.
But with the Australian making the ground-shaking decision to leave the Austrian drinks firm’s racing stable last year and head to Renault for 2019, he’s been able to let his creative juices run wild… On Thursday in Melbourne, Ricciardo showed off a unique pink, green, blue and black paint-job for his 2019 helmet, designed by artist Nicolai Sclater, better known as Ornamental Conifer.
Ricciardo’s nickname, Honey Badger, is written on the back, with the rather punchy slogan ‘Stop Being Them’ on the side of the helmet.
So, not your usual helmet design.
Then again, Ricciardo is not your usual F1 driver…
