MIAMI, FLORIDA - MAY 05: The race helmet of Max Verstappen of the Netherlands and Oracle Red Bull

Formula 1 has descended upon the Sunshine State for the highly anticipated second edition of the Miami Grand Prix, and a few drivers – including Florida native Logan Sargeant – will be rocking some superbly creative one-off helmet designs this weekend.

Logan Sargeant

The American will technically have three home races this season – with Austin and Las Vegas to come later in the year – but it does not get closer to home than in the state you were born in, and in the city you used to race karts as a child.

And he will be sporting a new helmet this weekend that, while having similar colours to his usual lid, features some local touches, such as the palm trees, the huge Miami sign plastered across the front and more.

Pierre Gasly

Pink is a colour that is often associated with Miami, and Gasly’s one-off lid features a heavy dose of it on his special design. It also features a touch of sky blue, another colour associated with Miami, with his logo plastered all around his helmet.

Alex Albon

The Williams driver is known to be a keen golfer, helped by the fact that his partner Lily Muni He is a professional. And in tribute to the golf balls he hits on the fairway, his helmet is designed like one this weekend. Also, if you haven’t already, check out his acting skills in the helmet launch video on his socials.

Esteban Ocon

Like his Alpine team mate Pierre Gasly, Esteban Ocon’s one-off helmet also features a heavy dose of pink and sky blue. In a simple design, you can see palm trees, a staple in Miami, drawn around the sides and back, and the American flag at the top.

Lando Norris

Norris caught the eye with his basketball designed helmet for last year’s Miami GP. So he went away and thought about how he could top that this year. Having thought long and hard about it, he decided that instead of a basketball, he would go for a beach ball, and it looks incredible.

Max Verstappen

Last year’s winner in Miami has brought his own unique style this weekend, and while it is a similar design to his usual helmet, it features some different colours. And like many of his counterparts, he has gone with those that best represent Miami, namely pink and both sky and dark blue.

Kevin Magnussen

As a member of the lone American team in the paddock, it is only right that Magnussen brought his own special helmet design for the weekend. The Dane has traded in his usual red for a navy blue and white number that features a huge letter K painted on the sides and the back. We will let you figure out what that stands for.

Charles Leclerc & Carlos Sainz

Ferrari have gone for the double launch, as both drivers have brought their own special designs for the weekend. Leclerc has traded in his usual red for a white layout this weekend, which also features a flowery Hawaiian shirt pattern style.

On the other hand, Sainz has stuck to his usual dark theme, although the Spaniard has added in some Miami Vice colours, but in metallic form.

Nico Hulkenberg

Hulkenberg is racing in Miami for the first time, and he has brought his own unique touch on the weekend. It seems he has gone for a heavy palm tree theme on his lid, as it also matches what he was wearing upon entering the paddock on Thursday.
