The Singapore Grand Prix is right around the corner, and this night race will mark an important episode in the current F1 2022 season as Max Verstappen stands a chance to clinch his second world title at the Marina Bay Street Circuit. Proceedings for the weekend have already started with the press conference where Helmut Marko made the bombshell prediction that chances are less for Verstappen winning the Championship in Singapore due to Charles Leclerc.

The Singapore Grand Prix will be the first race after a two-week long break since the Italian GP in Monza as the Russian GP was cancelled amidst Ukraine-Russia tension. Fans are expecting some great racing from the leading teams as everyone is eager to make a go for as much points as they can, to finish the Championship in a positive note.

And in the middle of all this, George Russell has dropped the design for his helmet for the Singapore Grand Prix. F1 racers often wear specially customised helmets around some of the circuits which are significant to them. As Mercedes posted pictures of Russell’s new helmet, F1 Twitter broke out in dispute over one of its key aspects.

As soon as the design for George Russell‘s helmet went public as the admins for Mercedes’ official page on Twitter posted about it with the caption “That
@PETRONAS green though.“, the comments section exploded with the reactions of the fans. Some of them thought the helmet looked beautiful and should be made Russell’s official helmet for all the races–

But the comments section was mostly captured by the fans who were busy debating on whether the helmet was actually green, or if it was blue. And some of the followers even went farther to describe the colours as different shades of blue, like turquoise, while some others said it is emerald green.

But in the end, it is not the colour of George Russell’s helmet that holds prime importance at the Singapore Grand Prix, but it is his performance and his results. The Briton must surpass Sergio Perez in the WDC Standings by performing better than the Red Bull racer as he is currently lagging behind the Spaniard by only 7 points. Now, it remains to be seen if George does achieve the feat and moves up into the third place in the World Championship of F1 2022.
