F1 2014: the 20 best helmets of all time
With the kick-off for the 2014 F1 season at the Melbourne GP in Australia just days away, we name the best-ever designs for F1 helemets.
F1 drivers love their helmet designs – so much so that they seem to change them almost every race. The FIA doesn’t like it and has been discussing banning the practice of ever-changing helmet designs (although so far for 2014 it’s only insisting that helmets carry the driver’s new permanent racing number).

Love the artwork but its such a shame journalism standards are slipping so badly, so many grammatical errors and the most obvious?
"helmet worn by Baumgartner during his Red Bull Stratos jump from to earth from space."
He jumped from to earth from space did he?
Regulations. Regulations. Regulations.
If the drivers want to vary the design on their helmet, particularly if it is to promote a charity or a tribute to a world, national, or even a personal event, then - WHY NOT.
Provided the helmet is of the approved specification FOR SAFETY that is all that the governing body needs to concern themselves with.
After all, they have never, as far as I am aware, been concerned about sponsor's logos on the overalls that are worn, so why the helmets, and yes Jackie Stewart's Tartan band and Graham and Damon Hill's London Rowing Club markings or Ayrton Senna's were not legislated against!
