helmet is part of me because it reflects my image. It is the only visual
contact for the people to recognise me in the car. I have to say that's
it's a kind of love story...In fact at 6 Years old I decided to be an
F1 driver, so I always tried to wear helmets since that time. I did a
lot on dirt bikes and then road bikes so I always had my helmets. I guess
I spent half of my life in a helmet. Now you know why it is so important
for me from both a design point of view and also my safety.
Finally in 1988 I decided with Nadine (my Wife) that I really wanted something
much brighter, so we decided to go with the Benetton colours used at that
time by Berger (fluorescent red & green with blue).
