Design: Fernando Alonso’s 2017 Indianapolis 500 helmet

Fernando Alonso. He’s having a hard time currently with the McLaren Honda in Formula 1. The two-time WDC winner with Renault started his career with Minardi scoring points on his debut.

He was picked up by Ferrari to replace Raikkonen in order to challenge the Red Bulls – a venture which ultimately ended in a lot of frustration and disappointment. He then turned to McLaren for the new Honda era, which remains largely fruitless three seasons in. In order for Alonso to keep sane, McLaren have allowed him to take part in the Indianapolis 500 this year, matched with a fresh, retro-inspired helmet design, as pictured above.

McLaren driving the Indy 500 is one with historic significance, as they took part ~50 years ago as well, before they decided to focus entirely on F1 after Bruce’s death.
