Valentino Rossi changes his helmet design again

Valentino Rossi has always kept to his tradition of sporting a new helmet design at the Suzuka circuit, and this year is no different as he has revealed a new design to the one fan's came to be familiar with a the end of last season.

The new helmet of MotoGP's reigning champion is a mix of old designs and will be Rossi's headwear for all of this coming campaign. The 22 year-old also wanted to stay faithful to the 'yellow rider' image he created for himself, and accordingly his leathers for this season will remain in that colour despite not matching the colours of the team's sponsors.

As a final touch, the three times World Champion has put a sticker on the back of his Honda RC211V's seat of Guido, the British bulldog that is his mascot.
