A fine chap if ever there was one.
And so, in the way that it seems only the FIA can do properly, a fine muck-up has been made with regard to driver's helmets for 2015. As we're all aware in recent-ish years drivers have taken it upon themselves to play around with the designs on their helmets for various reasons and the public, largely it would seem, couldn't give a monkey's. However, in a show of bravado and clear forethought, plus possibly a couple of triples, the FIA have decided to update Article 21.1 to state “In order for drivers to be easily distinguished from one another whilst they are on the track, the crash helmet of each driver must be presented in substantially the same livery at every Event during a Championship season”. As is the FIA's wont, they don't (and probably can't) define exactly what "substantially" means but what the hell. I'm left wondering whether they've been feeling left out recently at the relative freezing of specs and have been looking for something to remind of their outstanding prowess at regulation writing. I doff my hat to you, FIA, you have indeed reminded me of what is important in F1, as well as reiterating the clarity of your regulation writing. Bravo!! More triples all round!!
