Alonso to wear special edition points record helmet during Indian Grand Prix


A record is always a record and should be celebrated. Fernando Alonso today showed his Twitter followers the special livery that will adorn his crash helmet for the coming Indian Grand Prix, scheduled for the Greater Noida circuit this weekend.

In full view there is obviously the number 1571, the total points the Spanish driver has won in his career, accompanied by the words: “F1 points World Record”.

There is also a thank you to his fans in three languages (English, French and Italian), all on top of an unusual white background. We hope, along with all Ferrari’s tifosi, that the total can go even higher as soon as next Sunday, ideally by another 25 points! (Ferrari)
