Leading F1 teams unveil their 2018 championship machine with new mandatory Halo device, which designed to stop cockpit intrusion from large objects, such as wheels, another car or trackside barriers.

As the drivers themselves are openly showing off their 2018 crash helmet design via social media. Crash helmets have been compulsory in F1 racing since 1953, To counter that risk a modern F1 helmet must be supremely light – around 1250 grams is the norm – and strong.

The lighter the helmet, the less weight it adds to the driver’s head under the extreme G-forces experienced in accelerating/braking/cornering, hence the smaller the risk of whiplash-type injuries. And the stronger the helmet, the greater its ability to absorb impacts and resist penetration during a crash.

McLaren hero Fernando Alonso has become the newest driver to show off his design for 2018, with the Spaniard revealing a stunning new look for the season. Red Bull duo Daniel Ricciardo and Max Verstappen also release a short video for their helmet unveil.

Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 drivers Charles Leclerc and Marcus Ericsson published their new crash helmets studio pictures.

Kimi Raikkonen, Valtteri Bottas, Carlos Sainz Jr., Nico Hulkenberg, Romain Grosjean also reveals their new helmet design.

Following drivers have yet to make their new designs known to the public: Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel, Lance Stroll, Kevin Magnussen, Sergio Perez, Esteban Ocon, Stoffel Vandoorne, Pierre Gasly, Brendon Hartley and Sergey Sirotkin.
