Sebastian Vettel: Helmet Timeline
[return] Pictures of Sebastian's helmets through the years.



2013: Australian Grand Prix
Again, two helmets for Australia. The first was seen during the practices and was a reference to Red Bull Stratos, so it ressembled an astronaut helmet: all white, with a big visor.



The second helmet was wore during the race and it was very beautiful, in different shades of blue, with a spiral made of brilliant circles on top of it.



2013: Jerez Tests
A basic white and silver helmet. The main feature of it is the new sponsor logo of Infiniti, in purple, right in the front part of the helmet.



2012: American Grand Prix
In Singapore, Sebastian wore a special helmet for the night race. It was white with rainbow-colourful details, all glittery. The race lights would make it sparkle and look incredible in the video.



2012: Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
A more simple design, the Abu Dhabi helmet had black and silver stripes all over it, so the lights would reflect on it and show different shades of colours.



2012: Japanese Grand Prix
This helmet is entirely based on white and silver colours, giving the Red Bull logo plenty of contrast to shine. The red on top resembles the Japanese flag, of course, and there are writings in Japanese all over the helmet.



2012: Singaporean Grand Prix
Definitely one of Sebastian's most beautiful helmets. The design is all black with sparkling painture on details, and the top shows the skies and the stars. As the Singaporean Grand Prix is a night race, that means all the details would sparkle in the lights, and if that wasn't special enough, some LEDs were placed on the top, and would go on during the race, as real stars.



2012: Italian Grand Prix
Sebastian celebrated his 50th helmet change... with a new helmet! The top shows the marks as if he was counting until the 50th one.



2012: Hungarian Grand Prix
For the Hungarian Grand Prix, Sebastian repeated the helmet from Germany, but on the back, he placed two smiley stickers, each representing one of the world titles he won. He used to do that in his car livery back in Formula BMW to count the number of races he won.



2012: German Grand Prix
A golden helmet for his home race. At the German Grand Prix, Sebastian opted for a classic design with stripes, but with golden details over a white painting.



2012: British Grand Prix
The British Grand Prix helmet had the German flag on top, with an Union Jack flag placed right over it, with 'plastic tape'.

2012: Spanish Grand Prix
A different design for Spain: White background, with a blue horizontal stripe all around the helmet.



2012: Malaysian Grand Prix
A half black half white helmet, with swirls around it (specially on top), giving some sort of optical illusion.

Sebastian had two different helmets for the Australian Grand Prix. The first, seen in previews, was the original can design, with details in black and white, where you could read the names of all tracks, and a big red '2012' could be seen on the top of it.



The second was blue, with some print patterns which ressembled an animal.



2011: Brazilian Grand Prix

2011: Abu Dhabi Grand Prix
A very colourful helmet, with glitter all around it.

2011: Korean Grand Prix
The Korean helmet was quite simple. All black with the lines in gold, and two crossing stars on the top of it.



2011: Japanese Grand Prix
A very beautiful helmet could be seen during the Japanese Grand Prix. It had a degradee from white to black, and the japanese flag circle on its sides and top, where you could read some japanese word. It was called Kizuna, which means solidarity, togetherness. It was wore after the tsunami that affected most of the country, in a moment where the nation had to keep together to outcome such a harsh situation.



2011: Singaporean Grand Prix

2011: British Grand Prix
