Fernando Alonso has tweaked the design of his helmet livery for his 2010 switch to Ferrari.

Last season, which was the Spaniard's last with the Renault team, the 28-year-old fielded a mainly yellow design, including a red top and flashes and the traditional light blue of his home region Asturias.

But the helmet design worn by Alonso at this week's Madonna di Campiglio winter media event is slightly different, even though it retains the familiar 'arrows' on the top.

Worn when he was slalom ski-racing, and go-karting, with his teammates Felipe Massa and Giancarlo Fisichella in the Italian Dolomites, the new helmet has a light blue top.

The yellow and red of the Spanish flag remains, and in fact the helmet is a near reversion to his title-winning design of 2006.

In 2007, Alonso fielded an entirely different black, red and silver livery for his ill-fated McLaren outing in 2007.
