It fits like a second skin, it resists temperatures of up to 1.000 degrees Celsius and it’s mandatory in Formula one. In the new video from Mercedes AMG Petronas, Nico and his chief strategist unveil the importance of the Nomex race overalls currently worn today.

In this second video, Nico takes a look back in time to when Formula One drivers only wore leather caps. Safety improvements over the past few decades have been huge. Today’s helmets are full of state-of-the-art technology protecting driver’s in any situation.

In the third video, what seems to be a simple strap is in fact the number one life saver. Not only in Formula One but on the road as well. What is a high tech device today did not even exist in the early days of Formula One. Nico and Aldo Costa give detailled information about the demands on a Formula One safety harness.
