All the new F1 driver helmet designs for Monaco GP 2024

Ayrton Senna will be honoured once again around the streets of Monte Carlo at the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix, as several drivers have unveiled some eye-catching F1 helmet designs for the occasion

Ayrton Senna is immortalised once again at the 2024 Monaco Grand Prix as Lando Norris and Oscar Piastri remember the late Formula 1 legend, whilst Valtteri Bottas and Nico Hulkenberg run special F1 helmets for the second-oldest race on the calendar – the Monaco GP.

The Brazilian, who had the peak of his career with McLaren, died at the 1994 San Marino GP but he will always be remembered for his blistering speed around Monte Carlo that saw him outqualify Alain Prost by over a second twice in their stint as teammates.

As one of the most inspirational drivers to enter the sport, he took 65 pole positions and has left a legacy that all the modern drivers such as Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen admire.

So at the track Senna won six times from 1987-1993, with his only failure to win being when he crashed out from the lead in 1988, Norris has chosen to remember him by drawing heavy inspiration from the iconic yellow helmet the ex-McLaren star used to wear.

The 2024 Miami GP winner will sport a silver/chrome base to his lid that’s laced with yellow, green and blue loops and shapes – the colours used on Senna‘s helmets from his past, whilst there will also be a big black loop over his left and right eye.

Continuing the tributes from McLaren, Norris‘ teammate, Oscar Piastri, will remember the Brazilian by adopting a far more conventional design as he replicates the colours of Senna‘s helmet in the same form that the three-time champion used to wear.

The Australian will run a mostly light yellow helmet with green underneath his mouth and chin, whilst bands of blue and green are striped around the back of the lid. The back also features the ‘Senna S’ logo, whilst Piastri‘s name and the stars of the Australian flag are on the side.

Valtteri Bottas will please Sebastian Vettel and Lewis Hamilton with his latest helmet as he turns to advocating for social causes by bidding to raise awareness about ocean pollution and the dangers it poses to the world.

He will do so by sporting an lid that’s aqua-blue in the upper-half with dolphins bursting the surface of the “water”, whilst the back half will show fishes swimming in the deep. The bottom will be a seabed which is decorated with all of the critters that like to reside on the floor of the oceans and the plant life that can be found there too.

The helmet is designed by his girlfriend, Tiffany Cromwell, a professional cyclist who lives with the Finn in Monaco and it will later be auctioned on September 25 with the proceeds going to the Blue Marine Foundation and Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.

Nico Hulkenberg, meanwhile, honours the Principality of Monaco itself, which is also where he lives. The German Haas driver will rock a an almost-wholly white helmet with red diamonds on the side, perhaps referencing the casino in the state.

Black markings pay tribute to the iconic architecture, buildings and landmarks of the country whilst they are also in the white parts of the helmet in a way that you would best be able to see them by touch rather than sight.

The lid comes together really nicely and will go on to be one of the more memorable Monaco helmets, which will further be added by the name of the famous race being in a fancy hand-written font to complete the look.
