2017 Esteban Ocon Force India Original Unused Bell HP7 F1 Helmet
Stunning Original Helmet painted by Jens Munser Designs for Esteban Ocon. It was painted for the Frenchman and was to be used at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the final race of the 2017 F1 season. Driving for the Sahara Force India F1 Team, Ocon ended up not using the helmet since it was not delivered in time. The helmet sat on display at the JMD showroom for sometime afterwards.
This Esteban Ocon Bell HP7 Evo II carbon helmet is a very rare one and was not made available to the the public like the less expensive Bell factory RS7 replica models which used stickers instead of paint. Hand painted by Jens Munser Designs, it’s in the pink colors of Force India’s main sponsor BWT (Best Water Technology Group). It has a combination of dark pink graphics, edged in black & white pinstriping, over a lighter shade of pink, which has water droplets airbrushed throughout making this helmet truly eye-catching. Team sponsor decals from NEC, Neonec and Magnesium Water have been applied, as well as engine supplier’s Mercedes ‘Silver Star’ logo which has been added to the top front of the helmet. Missing from the helmet’s chin is the Johnnie Walker Whisky branding which was omitted due to the above Arab State’s ban on alcohol and all related advertising. The visor has a white AMG, BWT sun strip and the helmet is finished off with a blue custom interior.
This helmet could be the centre piece of any collection and has to be seen in person in order to be truly appreciated. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to own this stunning helmet today.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
A copy of the original invoice, when JMD was paid for their work, can also be provided to the buyer if required.
