Although the likes of Formula One and MotoGP are getting back into the swing of things, other racing series have been written off for 2020. So, to fill that gap, we’ve listed the most iconic helmets to grace European motorsports.

We’ve not just organised by the fanciest-looking lids, though – all of our picks have significance. Whether it’s the helmet Schumacher wore when he broke a near-50-year record, or Marc Marquez’s when he became MotoGP’s youngest-ever champion. That being said, a few of them are also works of wearable art.

And the admiration goes well beyond the chequered flag, with their helmets and racing suits fetching, in some cases, six-figure sums.

It’s only right we get underway with a look at racing’s premier class. Granted, we could’ve dedicated a whole post to F1 and its countless icons, but we’ve done our best to highlight some of the more notable heroes.

One whose inclusion will disappoint very few, however, is Ayrton Senna. Considered by many to be one of the sport’s very best, the Brazilian won three F1 titles in his signature yellow helmet. Through the visor of his 1991 edition, he grabbed eight pole positions and seven first-place finishes on the way to his final championship.

He’s joined in this category by record holder Michael Schumacher, who took Juan Manuel Fangio’s 46-year crown in 2003, and Sebastian Vettel, who became the youngest-ever champion in a final-race showdown in 2010.
