This weekend Felipe Massa will drive his 100th Grand Prix for Ferrari and his celebrate his 10th year in Formula-1.
For us this is a chance to honor him and celebrate with him: with a sepcial helmet design.

Not only since his accident in Hungary in 2009, Felipe and Schuberth have a very special partnership and as he received his new helmet this morning he promised to reserve a very special place for this helmet in his collection.

As always done by Jens Munser here is his special helmet design:

Alonsos Birthday Helmet 2011

This year we prepared a new helmet for Fernando Alonso´s 30th Birthday on 29th of July.

As he´s a real Motorbike and Ducati-Fan (he´s driving a custom-made Desmosedici RR) we provided him with a custom-made Schuberth SR1 at the Race in Hungary.

Here are the pictures of the red SR1 and we hope some more pictures on the track will follow ! Congratulations to making 3rd in Budapest and Happy Birthday !

New SF1 off the track

Recently the prototype of our new Formula 1 Carbon Helmet SF1 was the star in a fairly another type of photo shoot. We think it also looks awesome off the track. But please get an idea of it yourself!

Welcome to the team, Cong Fu!

We are happy that we have been able to win the Chinese DTM pilot Cong Fu “Franky” Cheng for the circle of Schuberth race drivers. Cong Fu Cheng, in Europe also known as “Franky” to keep it simple, is a driver in the AMG Mercedes team and relies officially on our carbon helmet RF1 since last race at the Nürburgring. Franky ranks among the most successful motorsports people in China. He could already celebrate many achievements in different international Formula series und was part of the McLaren sponsorship program. In the DTM he is the first Chinese ever who started in the most popular European touring car series.

During a visit in our helmet manufactory Franky could take his new helmet directly out of the hands of our CEO Marcel Lejeune. Afterwards our Head of Production Christof Wobst showed and explained him how a motorcycle helmet is produced. Franky was impressed by how much manual work is needed.

We wish Franky a successful motorsport season 2010 and are happy to have such an excellent ambassador in China.
