It was the first time that a formula one race was held in Korea. With a good mood, all the people working in F1 were happy after an interesting and exciting race on sunday. Especially after a rainy sunday, with heavy wet weather and some chrashes on the track, all the mechanics had a lot to do. Same as us – the Schuberth Racing Service had to run a lot during the grid phase and the restart-phase. Ferrari on the one hand – Mercedes on the other hand. Having visors ready, the spare helmets with you and a cleaning cloth for dry helmets in the pocket.
Korea was a new and dirty track – and after the race was finished, we could see that, when the drivers helmets were back in our hands in the garage. On the pictures below, you may find the dirt . On Nico Rosbergs helmet, you find some chrash debris from his accident with the red bull of Mark Webber. Its is very interesting for us to see, what is all on a helmet after a race with a lot of fights. somethimes you find dirt, broken scoops, destroyed visor stripes, very dirty visors (even they could use tear-offs – unbeliveable but true), or tyre rubber all over the helmet.
At the end of the day, we were able to remove all the dirt and to let the helmets shine again – ready for the next grand prix.
