Romain Grosjean has unveiled his new helmet design for the 2015 Formula 1 season after running in a neutral carbon fibre lid for the first test in Jerez.
The Frenchman enters his fourth full season in F1 this year, having joined Lotus for the beginning of 2012. He had previously completed seven races for Renault in 2009 before returning to GP2 and winning the title in 2011.
Via Instragram and Facebook, Grosjean unveiled his new design for the 2015 season, and it’s certainly one of the best-looking on the grid.
“Here it is!” he wrote. “I’m so proud to introduce you my 2015 helmet! I hope you enjoy its design and that we will pick big results together.”

“My plan for 2015 is to do my best for myself and the team,” Grosjean said. “Of course, we want to be on the podium as much as we can and we want to score points. As long as you do your best, then you can be happy with what you’ve achieved.
“The team knows what I like and what I don’t like. I know how they work as well. Things are far smoother than the first few years.”
After a woeful 2014 campaign with the troublesome E22 car, Grosjean’s first impression of the new E23 Hybrid was a good one in testing earlier this week.
However, we will have to wait until Melbourne to see if having the coolest lid correlates with outright pace in 2015.
