Ricciardo shows off colourful new Formula 1® helmet

Australian driver Daniel Ricciardo has unveiled his new helmet that he will wear in the 2020 Formula 1® season.

Ricciardo will wear the helmet at the track on Friday at the Formula 1® Rolex Australian Grand Prix 2020 when F1 practice begins.

The Renault driver had previously promised to “save the day” with his 2020 helmet.

Posting on Twitter as many of his rivals shared their helmet design last month, Ricciardo said: “I love everyone releasing their new helmet for this year.

“Really cute guys. Really. Original too.. Don’t worry, I’ll save the day.”

Ricciardo took to Twitter to share his helmet with his fans.

The 30-year-old Ricciardo will again carry the hopes of Australia in Sunday’s much-anticipated race.

Ricciardo finished fourth at the 2016 and 2018 Australian events, while he crossed the line second in 2014 but was later excluded from the race after his car was found to have consistently breached the fuel flow limit.

The West Australian did not finish the race last year.
