Schumacher to launch upgraded helmet

Helmet manufacturer Schuberth have upgraded the helmet design after Felipe Massa’s injury and Michael Schumacher helmetwill launch the design at European GP in Valencia.

During the accident of Felipe Massa the left visor mounting was knocked off.  Schuberth has reinforced the mounting point between the helmet and visor with a titanium disc. The change will double the strength of the mounting.

“Felipe’s visor only came off when the doctors pulled on it,” Schuberth’s Oliver Schimpf told German newspaper Bild.

“But we have inserted a titanium disc at the transition from the visor to the helmet where before there was only plastic.

“It is a reaction to the accident.”

The price is 12000 euros. The price a driver has to pay for his safety.
