Monaco F1 Grand Prix 2011: The bespoke Steinmetz Diamonds helmets for Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button
It is a well-established custom of the luxury manufacturer Steinmetz Diamonds to create distinctive helmets for the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes drivers, Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button, at each and every of the F1 grands prix held at Monte Carlo in the last years. The bespoke 'pieces of jewelry' feature diamond-engraved lettering for the names of the two racers - Lewis's helmet retains the beautiful yellow colour, in addition to the distinctive design of the top section, comprising two glitty dices; on the other hand, Jenson's helmet features a flashy, high-tech looking, white and silver-painted exterior casing.
