Formula 1 racing helmets are extremely strong and durable safety devices custom-fitted to the driver’s head. 

They undergo compulsory FIA-approved testing, not only ensuring durability but other aspects like weight and heat resistance are also tested.

The helmet features a visor designed to stay “see-through” under stress, and tear-offs are used to maintain clear vision during the session.

Drivers are allowed to customise their helmets and often use them to express their brand, relate to the audience or highlight causes they support.
