Formula One’s Blinged Out Helmets

Monaco and glamour go hand in hand, specially when the country’s Grand Prix closes off the streets and the racing cars buzz.

This year though, two drivers will have more than their fair share of attention. Lewis Hamilton and his McClaren team-mate Heikki Kovalainen have revved the game up a notch, sporting diamond encrusted helmets as part of their Grand Prix gear.

On top of each helmet, the signature of the driver has been paved with a line of hundreds of Steinmetz diamonds. To complete the bling bounty, Steinmetz, one of the world’s most famous diamond houses has given Hamilton and Kovalainen a diamond ring to go with the $10,000 one modeled on a tire which Hamilton received last year.

Seems driving fast cars is a nice job if you can get.
