An agreement has been reached by Formula 1 to provide integrated helmet cameras for all drivers participating in the 2023 grid.
Racing Force Group announced that it has signed an agreement for its Driver’s Eye camera to be used in Formula 1 for the 2023 season. This comes after F1 has been experimenting with helmet camera technology in recent years.
Racing Force Group announced that it will be providing an ultra-lightweight, 8mm diameter camera that will be integrated inside the interior padding of all drivers’ helmets for the 2023 Formula 1 season. The camera weighs just 1.43g and will be available to all drivers regardless of their helmet manufacturer.
Starting from the Belgian Grand Prix, Formula 1 has been testing a new mini camera that is placed in the lining of drivers’ helmets.
The new mini camera technology was first tested by Fernando Alonso at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit, and has been used several times throughout the latter half of the 2022 Formula 1 campaign.
The footage of the camera has been well received by fans, and Formula 1 is pleased that it provides an additional perspective on what drivers experience in the cockpit.
During the 2022 Formula 1 season, 11 drivers competed using Bell helmets. These drivers include Fernando Alonso, Charles Leclerc, Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen, Lando Norris, Esteban Ocon, George Russell, Pierre Gasly, Antonio Giovinazzi, Nicholas Latifi and Nikita Mazepin.
