Diamonds decorate Vodafone McLaren Mercedes helmets

Lewis Hamilton and Heikki Kovalainen will be wearing helmets decorated with diamonds when they compete at the Monte Carlo Grand Prix.

The creators of the helmets, Steinmetz, have made personalised designs for both drivers with a line of diamonds next to the signature of both.

Steinmetz has also created its own logo using Forevermark diamonds, the world’s most prestigious variety.

"As some people might know I am very particular about my helmet but it looks great and will add some extra sparkle to the event," Lewis Hamilton said.

Kovalainen said he was looking forward to the Grand Prix and said it was the one that all the drivers "really want to win".

"To be able to race at this prestigious event with Steinmetz diamonds on my helmet will bring something special to the occasion," he explained.

Hamilton received his helmet at the McLaren Technology Centre last week and Kovalainen is set to receive his own on Wednesday.

The Forevermark diamonds come from mines with the highest safety standards and are only available in a selection of jewellers worldwide and only one per cent of the world’s diamonds are eligible for this status.
