Jenson Button has confirmed he will revert back to his original helmet colours and design for the 2016 F1 world championship after offering the choices of design to a public vote.

The McLaren-Honda driver opted for a fresh red and white design last year but will now revert back to the colours he used in 2013 after Button's fans voted for the former design with a 71% majority.

Two years ago the 2009 F1 champion wore a striking pink helmet as a tribute to his late father. F1 sporting rules state drivers cannot change helmet designs or have special one-off helmets during a season, meaning the design will stick with Button for the whole campaign.

Here we are ladies and gentlemen, my new old helmet livery for 2016! #JB22 Hope you like it because you chose it!
