The FIA ​​has approved a ban on changing the look of the helmet

From this year's season onwards, Formula One racers will no longer be allowed to significantly change the color scheme of their protective helmet during the season, as the International Automobile Federation (FIA) has now included the proposed ban in the rules.

Some racers more or less regularly changed the images of their helmets, so there were worries that spectators would not be able to recognize them. The new rules also prohibit paintings with which racers marked special events.

The new rule, however, does not specify whether and how the racer will be penalized in the event of a violation.

At the same time, the FIA ​​also explained the ambiguities surrounding the selected racing numbers of the racers. Before last season, racers had to choose a number between 2 and 99 to race for the rest of their Formula One career, but the question arose as to what would happen if a racer stopped competing in Formula One. The revised rule now defines that the end of a racer's career is considered if he does not compete in two consecutive seasons.

This means that the start numbers chosen by the racers the year before last and performed with them last season will be available at the start of the 2017 season.
