Helmet Set

Posted By F1 Fast Lap

Crash helmets have been compulsory in Formula One racing since 1953, but like F1 cars, their design and construction have evolved enormously since then. Nevertheless, head and neck trauma remains the greatest single injury risk to drivers.


To counter that risk a modern F1 helmet must be supremely light - around 1250 grams is the norm - and strong. The lighter the helmet, the less weight it adds to the driver’s head under the extreme G-forces experienced in accelerating/braking/cornering, hence the smaller the risk of whiplash-type injuries. And the stronger the helmet, the greater its ability to absorb impacts and resist penetration during a crash.

From 2011, helmets will feature a new Zylon strip across the top of the visor to enhance protection significantly. The strip, which is 50mm tall across the full width of the visor, overlaps the top 25mm of the visor itself and extends 25mm above the helmet shell edge. The strip adds about 70 grammes to the helmet, but doubles the impact performance of the visor.
As well as safety tests, F1 helmets also undergo wind-tunnel testing to help achieve a design that minimises the drag produced when the driver is travelling at speed.

Did you know …that despite the cutting edge materials used in their construction, Formula One helmet liveries are still painted by hand? It’s an incredibly skilled job requiring hundreds of hours of work for more complicated patterns and designs.  <<source>>
