Fernando Alonso and his new 2008 helmet

2008 Fernando Alonso HelmetSometime the helmets the drivers use during the testing season are not the same than those they enter the season with, but this one looks like a keeper. Alonso’s new helmet is a return to his previous Renault design and an obvious escape from his McLaren days helmet.

It also displays 2 ace cards on the back to mark his 2 world titles.

And here is the updated version as seen at the Renault R28 launch, sporting logos of his new sponsor:

I like this Alonso’s new helmet more that his 2007 one.

    I like it, looks kinda old school, retro maybe.

    it is a bit retro, but it is clearly Alonso’s helmet, unlike the design he had in McLaren …
