Helmets on pit crews at COTA

Anyone know why they were wearing them? Does the track require them?

Looks like Gigi just said flat-out "No."

"From the 2017 season, MotoGP mechanics will be required to wear approved helmets during mid-race 'flag-to-flag' bike changes.

The use of helmets follows a scary incident for Alvaro Bautista in Argentina (see video below).

A further safety move will see a maximum of four mechanics allowed to assist each rider during the bike change. "

Next thing I heard coming is banning shorts on grid. And considering getting rid of grid girls was also being discussed in an article. This is soon the end of the world as we know it...
