2018 Fernando Alonso Official Replica McLaren F1 Helmet
Official Bell limited edition replica helmet just like the one worn by two-time Formula 1 World Champion Fernando Alonso in his final season with McLaren. Alonso would eventually inform the team, towards the end of the season, that he wished to pursue other racing challenges in IndyCar, Sportscar and Off-Road racing. He has since gone on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans (twice), the Daytona 24 Hour and the FIA World Endurance Championship. He also led laps at the 2017 Indy 500 and was awarded Rookie of the Year honors as a result. He has since returned to F1 and is currently racing with the Alpine F1 Team.
This stunning helmet sports the iconic blue, red and yellow colors of the Asturias regional flag, which is the birthplace of the Spaniard. There is also the “Cruz de la Victoria” (Victory Cross) emblem in yellow on the back of the helmet. Alonso’s name and arrow logos are on the bottom on both sides. The crown of the helmet bears his race #14 and two ‘lightning arrows’, on either side, as well. Alonso’s main sponsor, Spanish clothing retailer Kimoa, has its logo prominently displayed on the top of the helmet. Chandon and Vive lettering is on the visor strip, with a pair of BR Petrobras logos on the cheeks.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
