The question remains: How do Vettel and his designer Jens Munser react to the German’s helmet?
As a reminder: Vettel is the first driver who has made the constant change of helmet design his trademark. At Red Bull, the Hessian took his helmet-changing game to extremes, mothballed his head protection after each of the many victories and always had the Lower Saxony Jens Munser have a new paint job done.

With the switch to Ferrari and the FIA ​​rule, according to which every driver can only change their basic design once a year, things became less complicated in the Vettel camp. “We have always liked white as the basic color,” says Munser at AUTO BILD Motorsport. “In addition the German flag, the Ferrari logo and the start number 5. That just looked classy.”

In 2019, the urge to experiment came back in Hessen. The best example: the rainbow helmet in Turkey, which was supposed to carry the positive message of a diverse society into the motorsport world – and which was auctioned for more than 200,000 euros.

And now? Will Vettel’s Aston Martin headguard be as green as his car? “ICM Designs” has published a possible variant of the new Vettel helmet on Facebook. The basic color remains white there. Original: the start number 005, based on James Bonds 007.

Munser to ABMS: “I’ve already seen a few designs on social media, but Sebastian’s paint scheme for 2021 has not yet been determined.” Just this much: “Formula 1 is not a stealth championship.” In other words: the helmet is the same color as the car giving so that it goes completely under is rather uncommon.
