New ugly helmet design for Grosjean

Romain Grosjean has a new helmet design for his home race.

The Haas driver enlisted the help of designer Richard Orlinski, who has also designed the French Grand Prix podium trophies, for this year's lid.

"Last year, obviously, I did blue, white, red which is a very nice one, but this year I wanted to do something a bit different so I contacted Richard Orlinski because I'm a big fan of his artwork and I met him here last year and I sent him a white piece of paper and I said can you produce a helmet for me for the French Grand Prix?

"And he answered yes, I would love to and I was super excited about it and then I received the artwork and I think it does represent Richard very well in the way that the design is done. It's very very different to anything I've been wearing up to date so I like it even more and I think it's just great that it's part of the whole show. Richard is doing the trophy for the podium, we can see the 'Kong' everywhere around the racetrack and I know there will be my helmet racing on track so it's pretty cool."
