FIA MEDEDELING BETREFT DECORATIE OP HELMEN

De FIA zet zich samen met ASN's continue in om de veiligheid van autosport te blijven verbeteren. Hiervoor brengt de FIA regelmatig bulletins uit met elke keer uitleg over één specifiek onderwerp. In het meest recente bulletin vraagt de FIA aandacht voor het decoreren en spuiten/verven van helmen. Wanneer dit buiten de richtlijnen van de fabrikant om wordt gedaan, kan de helm beschadigen waarmee de FIA-homologatie van de helm komt te vervallen. De FIA schrijft hierover het volgende:
 
''The most common form of customisation used on helmets is paint. It is important to note that paint can react with the helmet shell and energy-absorbing materials (also known as the helmet liner) and may negatively affect its protective capacity if the incorrect type or application method is used.
 
It is the competitor’s responsibility to ensure that any decoration of their helmet is done in accordance with the guidelines provided by the manufacturer. Such guidelines are typically available in the helmet user guide, published on the helmet manufacturer’s website, and available upon request directly from the manufacturer. FIA and/or ASN officials may reject a helmet if it has been improperly customised (e.g. if the FIA and/or ASN officials see any paint marks on the helmet liner or evidence that the energy-absorbing material was removed and reinstalled, the helmet can be rejected during initial scrutineering).''
