Senna’s helmet: everything you need to know!

Product launches
Who doesn’t know him, according to many people he is the greatest Formula 1 driver of all time: Ayrton Senna. The highly successful Brazilian racing driver has crowned himself world champion three times in a span of ten seasons. The fairytale called Ayrton Senna ends prematurely due to a fatal accident during the San Marino Grand Prix in 1994. In this article I will take you through the design of Senna’s helmet, because there is a long history behind it!

Helmet design

In Senna’s karting time his helmet consisted of a solid white color with no further features. He also experimented with a yellow and green helmet before finally deciding in 1979 to go for the legendary combination of a yellow background with a green and blue stripe. This design was designed by Sid Mosca, he was also responsible for the helmets of Emerson Fittipaldi and Nelson Piquet.

When asked about the helmet design for Senna, Mosca said that the yellow base symbolizes youth. The blue stripe symbolizes movement where the green stripe symbolizes aggression. Something that was characteristic of his driving style. The helmet colors are mainly associated with the national colors of Brazil by the general public.

The helmet has not changed much over the years. In addition to the sponsorships, Senna occasionally changed the blue stripe to a black stripe, and also occasionally changed the type to yellow. For example, he drove with a sunbeam yellow but also with a fluorescent neon color. In 1994 he used a light-yellow color to make his helmet match his Williams car better.
