Vettel's saucy pin-up helmet

2013-05-24 10:07

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.

    When the limelight dissappear you would do any stupid thing to get publicity. He should work on his race-win-dominance, rather than issues that can not make his car faster, but nowadays kids do funny things!!!!!!

    Alonso will show character and the rest will follow. If Kimi's car has the legs, he would be there too.
