Which Formula 1 teams have the coolest face masks?

And which ones don’t really care about how they look?

The face mask has become the universal symbol of the global fight against the coronavirus. Every person on the planet is strongly urged to wear it. In fact, commercial establishments will refuse to entertain or serve you if you’re not wearing one. Yet, in spite of the expert advice of medical professionals, there are still idiots who stubbornly shun the face mask (see Donald Trump and the morons who follow him). So it’s pretty neat when you see your favorite Formula 1 drivers using this simple piece of personal protective equipment.

As you know, F1 is restarting this weekend, with the first race taking place in Austria. Below are pictures of the different types of face mask worn by the 10 teams on the grid. Tell us which ones you like the most—and which ones suck.

On second thought, no face mask sucks if it does its job of protecting the wearer from the virus. Just wear one, guys!
