Special helmet designs for French-speaking drivers

The French drivers have opted for special helmet designs for the French Grand Prix. Pierre Gasly and Esteban Ocon have clearly chosen the colours of their flag, while Monegasque Charles Leclerc returns to his very first helmet design.

Esteban Ocon will want to bounce back from his retirement in Azerbaijan this weekend. He will do so in a French Alpine car, but his helmet will also be wearing special colours this weekend. The colours red, white and blue are even more prominent on his helmet for this weekend.

French pride

A similar pattern can be seen at Pierre Gasly, who has chosen a predominantly white helmet for this weekend. On that white helmet many details can be found, but mainly the colours of the French flag.

Charles Leclerc is of course not a Frenchman, but as a Monegasque he has chosen a special design for the race at Paul Ricard. He will drive with a yellow helmet with blue accents, with which he drove his very first kart race. The design should resemble Spiderman's web, Leclerc explained on Twitter.
