Special helmets in abundance at the US GP

The United States Grand Prix is one that many drivers love. This is not only noticeable by their enthusiasm about the circuit, but also many drivers have a different helmet this weekend.

Daniel Ricciardo

Daniel Ricciardo gets to drive one of Dale Earnhardt's NASCAR cup cars this weekend, after making a bet with McLaren team owner Zak Brown. The Australian driver has now decided to use the Earnhardt theme for his helmet as well. The helmet has a black base famously used by Earnhardt, but Ricciardo's signature and number are visible on the top and front of the helmet to make it more his own.

Charles Leclerc

Leclerc has a special helmet for sponsor Richard Mille this weekend. The company has been making watches for 20 years and has been working with Ferrari for 10 years.

Fernando Alonso

Alonso's helmet features the volcanic eruption at La Palma. He will eventually auction the helmet and launch a platform for donations that go to the victims of the volcanic eruption.

George Russell

Russell's helmet is normally red and blue, but this weekend it is orange with black accents. Sheriff stars are pictured on the top and side of the helmet.

Lando Norris

It will also be a search for Norris this weekend, as his neon green helmet is not with him this weekend. The colours of the American flag can be seen on his helmet.
