Sauber drivers Marcus Ericsson and Charles Leclerc have revealed their new helmet designs for the 2018 Formula 1 season. 

Following Alfa Romeo Sauber’s unveiling of its 2018 F1 challenger - the C37 - on Tuesday, the Swiss team’s drivers revealed the helmets they will wear throughout the upcoming season.

Ericsson’s new design keeps in line with the concept he used during 2017, but has received a retro twist inspired by fellow Swedish F1 driver Ronnie Peterson. He shared images of the helmet on social media.

Ferrari protege Charles Leclerc, who makes the step up to F1 in 2018 following back-to-back title triumphs in GP3 and Formula 2, has switched from a white-based design to a predominantly black one.

The highly-rated 20-year-old Monegasque wore a special blue, red and yellow helmet dedicated to his late father, Herve, at the final two rounds of the 2017 F2 campaign.
