F1 Driver Helmets 2024: All new designs for the Bahrain Grand Prix

Some drivers have delved into their past whilst others are rocking dazzling new helmet designs for the F1 season opener


Ahead of the 2024 Bahrain Grand Prix, the opener of the upcoming Formula 1 season, the drivers have released their new helmets to match up with their race suits and surrounding car liveries.

The defending three-time driversโ€™ world champion, Max Verstappen, will use a predominately white base with a red and blue lion engraved on the top, bearing his logo. The customary Red Bull sigil is also present, along with the yellow in the background.

Combined, the colours used also represent the tricolour of the Netherlands, the nation he races on behalf of.

The Dutchman also rocks a gold visor and the number one to symbolise his status as the sportโ€™s top dog including three stars representing each year he claimed a title: 2021, 2022 and 2023.

Will he add a fourth star this time next year?

Meanwhile, Lewis Hamilton moves away from the neon yellow designs of recent years back to his mostly purple creations. The yellow isnโ€™t all gone, as the British driver remains sure to honor the legacy of his debut helmet and his 2022 and 2023 lids.

Within the yellow are seven stars representing the driver titles he won between 2008-2020 with one portion being left blank, perhaps a warning to the grid? Or motivation for the 103-time race winner and Mercedes?

Rounding off the gridโ€™s active world champions is Fernando Alonso. His 2024 head-protector is a mix of yellow, blue and light blue hinting at the legacy of one of the sportโ€™s best ever talents.

He offers an ode to his mid-2000s days when the oldest driver on the grid defeated Michael Schumacher to become a two-time champion in the iconic Renault R26, which was also coloured yellow and light blue.
