    isn't the katakana written "vi" in "Kevin" supposed to be "ヴィ" (vi) not "ビ" (bi)? it makes me read the text of the helmet as "Kebin Magnussen" LOL. but CMIIW.
    btw good work :thumbsup:

    BTW no, it's written in "bi" instead of "vi on "Kevin". Also does on other names (Alvin for example).

    Kebin, it's written as spoken by a native japanese speaker.

    ケビン·マグヌッセン

    Kebin Magunussen, that's the way they speak his name ;) (well, Magunussen Kebin would be the correct order usually but even Wikipedia gives it this way)

    because Japanese name order is usually in surname-forename. but that's for Japanese people only.

    Hm, have seen it several times, that foreign names were written in the same order.
    I usually introduced myself in their native name order as well, being in Japan. Noone ever mentioned something weird about that way.

    Correct, a V is pronounced as a B in Japanese. For example, Eba instead of Eva or Bancuba instead of Vancouver
