The obsession with Sebastian Vettel continues. The jab "If you look at the greats like Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna, they kept the same helmet (design) throughout their careers" that was a direct jab at Hamilton's Nemesis, Sebastian Vettel, because Seb likes to change his helmet design from race to race.
What makes a great F1 driver is not looking to the past for inspiration, but doing your own thing in the here-and-now. Hamilton wants to be the new Ayrton Senna. It isn't working out, copying his helmet or not. How ridiculous would it be for seb to wear a dayglow orange helmet to idolize Schumi?
These are the kind of reasons Seb is going to be a 4 time champion to beat Senna and match Prost, while Lulu continues to worship Senna, and jab at Sebastian.

to be honest, I never really look at the helmet design. if someone wants to keep to one design....fine if someone likes to change the design from race to race....fine.

what is more interesting is that vettel changes the shape of his helmet at times. sometimes he uses one with a small airfoil on it. it is attention to deail like that, which gives him an edge.

Was it really about being able to see you out on track or was it about "painting it up like Senna?" I think your dad thought you were a "Baby Ayrton."
Wouldn't dayglow orange have been a better choice for identification? Oh, wait, Schumi was using that one.
