George's Career Results
ROKiT Williams Racing
Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS F1 Team
The helmet is a crucial safety feature for a Formula One driver. But it’s also an important way to express themselves in the design and colours they choose – making them stand out from the rest of the grid and be instantly recognisable to the fans. Scroll through some of George's most iconic designs to see how his style has evolved through his years with Mercedes.
Used for his debut test with our Team in Budapest, George's first Silver Arrows helmet was a take on his red and black GP3 Series design from that season. 19-year-old George got behind the wheel of the W08, which would go on to win the F1 Drivers' and Constructors' Championship that year.
George's Favourite Track
"It wouldn’t matter if I was British or not, all the drivers say the same: there is a special atmosphere at Silverstone that is different to a number of the other grands prix. It has the best crowds of the year and the fans are incredibly passionate. To hear and see the crowd cheering you on is so special and it gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. There’s nothing quite like it.
I’ve been fortunate to race there throughout my junior career. My first ever race weekend in BRDC Formula 4 was on the Grand Prix circuit at Silverstone. I remember thinking how great it was that we got to follow in the wheel tracks of some of the incredible F1 drivers that have raced here. I won two of the three races that weekend and I’ve loved it ever since. I also won there in my first weekend in European F3 so it’s perhaps no surprise that it’s my favourite circuit.
The track itself is stunning. It’s so fast and flowing. It challenges you in every sector and driving an F1 car around it is an absolute privilege."
