In the build up to the Japanese Grand Prix this video of Nico Rosberg talking about the evolution of crash helmet technology was released to YouTube. He starts by showing the leather skull caps used around 50 years ago. We wonder, in 2062, will Nico’s grandson hold up his grandad’s 2012 helmet and say, “Would you wear this and race at 250km/h? That’s pretty insane.”
