Kimi Raikkonen has unveiled the helmet he’ll be using during the 2018 F1 season.
The Ferrari driver, who starts his sixteenth season in the sport this year, will sport a refreshed design on his helmet. While maintaining the usual red and black design, the helmet also features an extra splashing of blue.
The Finnish driver unveiled the lid in his own inimitable fashion on his new Instagram account, simply captioning the image: ‘This protects my head in 2018.’
Never change, Kimi.
