  1. Mick’s design is my outright favorite among the above six.

    1. @Jerejj, am I right in thinking that is very similar to his father’s helmet design. I am pretty sure I remember Michael Schumacher sporting a band around the top with a sort of grid in it, and then Barricello copied the style. I think one of them had red, and the other blue, but I cannot remember now which was which.
