“People for this rule change must have been watching F1 in black and white television.”
In the world of F1, there are many great rivalries. Senna vs Prost, Hunt vs Lauda, Schumacher vs Hakkinen… In 2015, we play by a different kettle of fish. Helmet designs. No seriously, I can’t believe I’m writing about this either. It boggles my mind that one day, a group of 20+ of the sport’s most powerful people came together to discuss…whether drivers can change helmet designs in the middle of a season, or not.
Turns out that according to the FIA, in an attempt to boost the sports promotional power, has decided to limit their drivers to just one design per season. This coincides with their changes of last season where drivers had to have permanent racing numbers, unless you were Champion, in which case, you could take the #1, like in MotoGP.
