Sebastian Vettel’s helmet for the Monaco Grand Prix weekend isn’t suitable for children.

Known for changing his lids often, the Red Bull driver’s helmet at Monte Carlo displays a pinup girl dressed in a black swimsuit at the back, which is cleverly featured with heat activated paint.

"When it is getting warmer, she loses her bikini top, you see two stars on nipples," reported Bianca Leppert, a journalist with Auto Motor und Sport, on her Twitter page.

Several drivers have introduced new helmets for Monaco

Fernando Alonso is racing with a gold and white helmet, marking his 32 wins in Formula 1 and his two word titles, which will be auctioned later for charity. It’s a practice that the Ferrari driver has followed in Monaco over the last three years.

Toro Rosso driver Jean-Eric Vergne is running with a helmet design which belonged to the late French racing driver Francois Cevert as homage to his compatriot.

Lewis Hamilton’s helmet features the caricatures of the Mercedes driver, his girlfriend and pop singer Nicole Scherzinger and pet bulldog Roscoe.
