  1. The first time in a while that Vettel has actually had a need to design a new helmet, considering he got to retire his in Singapore. Looks alright too.

  2. Hey look! Sebastian Vettel has a new helmet!

    That comfy chair of Alonso’s is getting a bit silly, especially as he is always getting his picture taken while sitting in it.

    1. No, thats just the drivers’ seat in the ferrari garage and thats where drivers sit when the car is being worked on; and the photographers like to capture the moment when drivers r relaxed. I dont think Alonso calls the photographers to take his picture while he is sitting on that chair.

  3. Button is not yeat wearing his special helmet? That’s disapointing! Why get a special helmet for a weekend and not using it? I could understand if it was raining but not in the dry.

  4. Oh, such beauty!
