Ahead of his race debut with new team Renault, Daniel Ricciardo has revealed his "funky" new helmet design.

Having been restricted to sporting the colours of Red Bull in recent years, now, having jumped ship to Renault, the Australian was pretty much given free rein when it came to choosing a new look for his 2019 lid.

Sporting a temorary livery during pre-season testing, Ricciardo told reporters that his proposed livery for the season would be "diferent" and "funky".

"It is certainly going to be different," he he grinned. "It is not going to be traditional and typical with a halo and lines that mean nothing. I am trying to get away from the typical helmet these days, so it should be funky. It is kind of artistic in a modern way.”

Indeed, revealing the look, which was designed by Australian artist Ornamental Conifer, it is both different and funky.

While the Honey Badger is there in name only, the pink, green, blue and black helmet features the phrase 'Stop Being Them' on its side, Ricciardo stating that this refers to taking an alternative path in life.
