Helmet in the weighing of F1 racing drivers

Can the winning driver take off the helmet after the race, or must the helmet be worn in the post race driver weighing?

The helmet can be removed immediately after the race, but it must be included when weighing the driver. Usually drivers have the helmet in their hand during weighing.

The regulations state that a driver must have all his equipment in the weighing, which means helmet, overall and shoes. The weighing is done because the minimum weight of the car is 691 kilos, which includes the weight of the driver.
