Jenson Button and Lewis Hamilton will race the Monaco GP with diamond studded helmets

The man with a golden heart showed off his diamond-studded helmet at the McLaren team motorhome that sports a red rising sun on a white background with his name written in Japanese set in sparkling diamonds at the back. The helmet will also sport his initials in Japanese with an Ichiban (number one) symbol. “It’s going to be difficult going back to my other helmet after wearing that,” he told Reuters. “I’ve always had the Union Jack, except for the Japanese Grand Prix when I changed it to the rising sun. I’m sure it looks a bit strange having diamonds on your helmet, and using the helmet really to raise awareness, they don’t really go together, do they?” other than Button, his teammate Lewis Hamilton who will also be a part of the race will race with his name studded in diamonds on his yellow helmet.
