Special helmet at the race where you might seal championship victory on Honda home soil = good idea.
Special t-shirt = oh so very, very bad.
Here’s the link to the offending Tweet on Twitter:
And here’s the image in question:
The helmet is a nice rising sun edition of his usual ant design and is therefore in red and white, making for a neat design change.
The T-shirt. Oh, the T-shirt. The Tweet translated says:
Well Marc, the helmet gets a big thumbs up, your choice of top, no.
He clearly means to show his love for the home country of his employers at a race which could prove to be very special for all of them. What he actually shows is ignorance at best. Where does he get his advice from?! Sack the stylist! (Wonder if he had a champion t-shirt printed in a bulk discount job at the same time…)
UPDATE : Image is also on the back of the helmet, so may not sell so well if released as a limited edition!
