Video: Russell reveals his Schumacher-influenced helmet

George Russell will face his first season on time as a Mercedes team driver after spending three years at Williams where he was able to debut on the podium at the 2021 Belgian Grand Prix and put in very good performances.

The Briton, who is celebrating his 24th birthday, showed off the final version of the helmet he will be wearing with the Brackley team through a video posted on the team’s social media.


Russell, sitting in a studio where some promotional scenes were probably being shot, explained the reasons for the color of his helmet. With a great predominance of black, the Englishman will wear the Mercedes star along with details in red, in addition to his number, 63, which he chose when he entered Formula 1.

“This is my helmet for the 2022 season, quite different compared to the others I’ve had,” said the British rider. “In this part is the number that I have in black, but it also has red, which is something that I have worn before.”

“Wearing a red helmet in a Mercedes is very Michael Schumacher, and I have a lot of respect for that, so I’ve gone in another direction. I’ve added some blue details, which I love,” explained George Russell.

The young driver of the German structure will also wear the logos of the sponsors around the head, with the presence of Monster Energy, Crowdstrike and TIBC , in addition to the main partner and that gives the team its name, Petronas .

Russell will be present next Friday, February 18, at the presentation of the new German car, the W13, with which he will try to win the world title that escaped them in the last round of last season, when Max Verstappen beat Lewis Hamilton .

Precisely, the seven-time champion was seen something else after completely disappearing from social networks. With the “44 is back” message, Mercedes confirmed that they were counting on Hamilton to go for their ninth consecutive constructors’ championship.
