Daniel Ricciardo - Renault - 2020
Since signing for Red Bull, Ricciardo has been a helmet designer 'out of control'. He was already racing in 2019 with an extravagantly coloured headgear and the line looked set to continue next year. In 2020, he raced in a helmet reminiscent of Kobe Bryant in the pre-season tests, but he was due to grace the crowd with a brand new design in Melbourne, but the Australian Grand Prix was cancelled due to the pandemic, so that had to wait.
On this occasion, the Australian enlisted the help of British artist Nicolai Sclater to design his 2020 helmet. And once again, the end result speaks for itself. Ricciardo has stressed that he wants to break away from the usual templates, so this helmet is a departure in that spirit. The leopard-print helmet features Nicolai-designed logos depicting a smile, a trademark of the Australian driver, who was very pleased with the result.
In 2020, Ricciardo was seen wearing this helmet in his final year with Renault, which, while not a bad result, was enough to make him decide to switch teams and this year he will be seen in McLaren colours. Spark has created a 1:5 scale version of the Australian driver's helmet that will make a truly unique addition to your collection.
