Now that all the hype has blown over from the launch of the 2012 McLaren, we’ve been taking a closer look at Lewis’ new helmet for the year.  

It’s pretty much the same as previous years, except for this little Unlap-esque graphic on the back which looks to be a cartoon of Lewis DJing on some personalised decks.  Is this new, part of a new ‘Lewis’ brand or is just having a bit of fun with his yellow skid-lid?
