New designs and helmets for the 2022 F1 grid

Red Bull Content Pool

The 2022 Formula 1 season is fast approaching and teams are gearing up to take on pre-season testing in Barcelona and Bahrain.

Just as the teams have done with their cars, drivers like to get in on the act of the reveal and new helmet designs are now featured just as much on social media as the liveries of the cars they’ll be driving.

Get to know the grid and which drivers to look out for with this gallery of 2022 F1 crash helmets.


Max Verstappen

The world champion uses his right to bring back the No1 to Formula 1 for the first time since 2014. The Dutch driver has unveiled a new lid for his title defence and hasn’t strayed far from ’21’s effort.


Lewis Hamilton

The seven-time world champion has stuck with the same design as he used last season and there’s still room for another star on the side of his helmet. Will 2022 be the year he adds an eighth?

George Russell

Russell will not use a red helmet anymore and has instead switched to black for the 2022 season.

“A red helmet in a Mercedes I thought was very Michael Schumacher, and I really wanted to respect that and go in a different direction,” the British driver said ahead of the new season.

Daniel Ricciardo

Never one to stick to the conventional, Daniel Ricciardo has once again gone outside the box with his new ‘present momentum’ helmet for the new F1 season.

Pierre Gasly

The Frenchman starred during last season and he’ll be hoping for the same again in 2022. In that sense, he’s kept things familiar with his design for this season too.

Yuki Tsunoda

It’ll be slightly easier to tell the two AlphaTauri drivers apart this season as Yuki Tsunoda has moved away from the flourescent red to an orange lid for ’22.

Alexander Albon

Thought it might look like it, Alex Albon isn’t back at AlphaTauri or Red Bull this season though he remains a Red Bull-affiliated driver. He’ll hope his F1 return with Williams is a little more distinctive though.


Valtteri Bottas

After finally departing Mercedes, Valtteri Bottas has a fresh start at Alfa Romeo and he’s gone with a brand new crash helmet design too. Designed by partner Tiffany Cromwell, the Finn will be hoping it helps him on the way to points finishes with his new team

Mick Schumacher

The Haas driver has changed things up once again and taken another design from his father’s collection. Similar to the Mercedes era of Michael Schumacher helmets, Mick has gone back to the green he used earlier in the ’21 season.
