He had a competition to design his helmet and out of the hundreds of entries, many of which were professionally done, he picked a 6 year old. That's pretty cool man. Chill out.

EDIT:
Thousands of entries

wow pretty high temps for both sessions.. tomorrow and Sunday ll be cooler though..

it was sad to hear Albon's voice frustrated after he crashed but he managed to put a nice time in at least before the crash.. in 2 practice sessions Albon and Max was telling about mid and exit corner problems and seen example with Albon crash.. probably he doesnt feel good about the car for Sunday at the moment but he ll get over it im sure.. and yes RB has a traditional high rack setup but whatever they did to car recently doesnt seem to be in peace with high rack setup at least so far.. car looks soo snappy on the rear coming out of nowhere..

Merc' were looking ok but and again high temps they dont like it really.. Hamilton wasnt look that happy with the setup but i guess it ll get much better tomorrow without even changing the setup that much..

Stroll is on fire and actually he needs to be at the same time for keeping or deserving the seat next year.. seems he started get confident with the car and until Hulk adapts to the car it ll take some pressure of him..

Ferraris are still trouble.. Leclerc engineer was telling to save tires more in few corners and Leclerc didnt sound like he could do more about it.. Vettel had a really bad day first with intercooler and on 2nd session with pedals but he looks so disconnected with the car or with the setup or both.. i guess he went off or touched the gravel 6-7 times even he was going slower.. dark clouds are visible on Ferrari even under bright sunlight..

Seing the speed the RB mechanics fixed Max's car,then it won't take long to get Alb's car ship shape.The RB16's tend to go quicker after being repaired after a mild prang,seing how car 33 performed after that repair in Hungary.

Up early tomorrow morning to watch MAD MAX show his future teammate VET how it's done....

Help me remember the turn at Monza (was it Turn 6 Curva del Serraglio?) when RIC literally took to the grass at 330 KPH to avoid (I believe it was VET who moved over on his racing line) and passed him....and then got on the radio and said "THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT, LADIES!!!!" Was this in 2014 or so??

I don't understand how F1 fans react to drivers and their performance. Albon is underperforming and that's a fact. He's driving the same car Verstappen is driving. Vettel underperformed last year and that's a fact (I'm a die-hard Vettel fan) whole driving the same car as Leclerc. If there's a better replacement for Albon so be it. Ferrari thought Sainz is a better replacement to Vettel and RB have every right to axe Albon.

Mate listen . You must understand that MAX can drive for the podium even in a shitty car .
I already saw him here in Belgium driving as a youngster in his kart . His driver skills are unreal !
In other words : If you are a team mate from MAX . You will go down ...By the contrast on the track .

BTW : I like SEB as well

So RB have been producing shitty cars since 2014? Yes Max is a great talent but that doesn't make a lot of sense to me since Ricciardo won races and had multiple poles.
