Vettel's saucy pin-up helmet

Mercedes' Lewis Hamilton has a quirky helmet design for the 2013 Monaco Formula 1 GP showing himself, his girlfriend and his bulldog in a car.

Now Sebastian Vettel has revealed his helmet choice for the Monaco race - a 1940-esque pin-up with a raunchy secret. Thanks to heat-sensitive paint, the girl's clothes disappear as the helmet gets hotter.

The rest of the helmet is conservative, the crown a tribute to the great Stirling Moss's against-the-odds Monaco triumph in 1961. Expect a lot of TV coverage from the camera behind Vettel's head.

It's a pity the cockpit blocks the rear of his helmet as the naked pin-up could prove a race winning strategy by distracting his rivals.
