For a Franco Swiss driver, Romain Grosjean understands the importance of the American team he races for, Haas F1 Team, and has done well to embrace the culture and team.

Grosjean also is doing a class gesture at the United States Grand Prix in October, as he’ll wear a Nicky Hayden tribute helmet, to honor the fallen MotoGP champion who died in May this year.

He revealed the helmet earlier this week. It features an American flag with Hayden’s signature No. 69 logo and “Kentucky Kid” signage on the back of the helmet. You can see it below.
