After polling fans online, Jenson Button has revealed the helmet design he will sport throughout the 2016 Formula One season, his 17th in the top flight.

The McLaren-Honda driver opened a Twitter poll last month in which he asked fans to choose between his 2013 and original livery or the 2015 layout. 36,465 votes were cast with the former option garnering a definite 71% support.

However, it seems like Button has actually mixed both designs, as highlighted by the dragon symbol featuring at the bottom of the helmet.

With the FIA implementing a ban on in-season helmet colour changes last year, the 2009 world champion will have to use the fan-selected design all year long, though minor changes remain allowed.
