Formula 1 drivers will be banned from changing helmet designs in-season under new rules set to be introduced this year, AUTOSPORT can reveal. As part of a push to improve the promotional appeal of the sport, F1 chiefs have grown concerned that fans are turned off by drivers constantly changing their helmet colours.

What? I like the one off helmets :(

I don't mind them if it is one or two a year, but when it is every weekend that gets a bit much.  No reason for the ban though, seems unnecessary.

Yeah - I think there's a better way to curb this - 2 or 3 times a year and it has to be involved in some sort of charitable fundraiser or auction.

Stupid rule about the helmet changes....

I don't understand why the McHonda doesn't or won't break down on a chassis dyno but they find all sorts of things breaking down under testing...?  It feels like a lack of preparation more than anything to me...

Considering McLaren described it as a small shunt with minimal damage to the car, Fred in the hospital for 3 days, Magnuson taking over for the next pre-season test, and now an FIA investigation, something isn't adding up.

The picture that leads credibility to him being zapped is this one:  http://www.marca.com...15/index_7.html

Right under the camera, is what appears to be an electrical short.  Or it could be the shadow from the camera...who knows.

GP3 driver Carmen Jorda to be named as a development driver at Lotus F1 Team. Here she is, looking like Lara Croft.

Pretty cool more females are getting into it.

Also, McLaren is having a hell of a preseason. They are giving RedBull 2014 a run for their money during testing.

Good to see more women in F1, but until one gets an actual race seat it's all a bit meaningless.

Lulling the opposition into a false sense of security.

By benching their best driver for the remainder of testing?

I do hope a woman makes the grid at some point during my daughter's childhood.  I'd much rather root for Carmen in a Lotus than any sort of WNBA/Women's World Cup crap.
