Why do racing drivers wear baseball hats?


Share This Post

Racing drivers wear helmets when driving, but as soon as the race is finished, they usually put on a baseball cap with their team logo on it. This shows their loyalty to their team, and fans purchase caps with identical logos to demonstrate that they are also devoted to the racing team.

Red Bull, Porsche, Mercedes and other teams have their own branded baseball caps that their drivers and fans wear. World champion F1 driver Lewis Hamilton has his own Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport hat, which is a fashionable black colour with the iconic Mercedes logo displayed prominently on the crown.

F1 races are often held in countries with hot climates, so baseball caps are good for protecting the face from the hot sun. Baseball caps may be practical headwear, but most car racing enthusiasts wear them because of their looks, their branding and to declare their team allegiances

If you follow outdoor sports such as motor racing, you can rely on your Flexfit cap to stay on in windy weather, protect you from the sun, and withstand the odd rain shower. Despite its association with speed, motor racing is a slow-moving sport – the qualifying stage, practice laps and the race itself take place over many hours. Flexfit caps are extremely comfortable to wear over the three days of an F1 meeting.

You don’t have to be a motorsports fan to wear Yupoong caps. A Yupoong custom cap branded with a high-profile logo is both a statement of your fashion style and your brand loyalty.
