Alonso to paint 2007 helmet silver

Wed, 3 January 2007, 07:26

Fernando Alonso will replace most of the blue on his current helmet livery with the colours silver or chrome in 2007, we have learned.

It is understood that the move may have been at the behest of McLaren, as light blue is closely associated with the Spaniard and twice world champion’s former team, with whom Alonso won fifteen races.

Although 25-year-old Alonso included the colour on his helmet to represent his home region of Asturias, past Renault single seaters have been painted light blue for more than a decade in deference to departing title sponsor Mild Seven.

Alonso wore an unbranded white helmet when he tested a McLaren for the first time last month.
