Norris reveals 'exposed carbon' helmet for 2023

The British driver has adopted a simplistic design for his helmet this season.

Lando Norris has revealed his 'exposed carbon' helmet design for the 2023 season. The design is similar to previous seasons with the yellow base colours, along with his logo and pattern along each side. However for the black lines he has elected to not paint the carbon fibre, which could be a weight-saving measure as most teams found themselves over the 798kg limit in 2022. F1 helmets typically weigh 1.25kg after new and safer designs were introduced in 2019 by the FIA. Part of the tests include being able to withstand a 10kg weight falling from 5.1 metres onto the helmet, and an air rifle firing a 1.2g pellet at the visor. All drivers will also have access to helmet cam in 2023 , having previously only been available to those with Bell Helmets. Check out Norris' design below.
