All the new F1 driver helmets for the 2022 Japanese GP

Yuki Tsunoda will make his home debut in F1 at the 2022 Japanese GP and the AlphaTauri driver is marking the occasion with a new helmet design

-

Formula 1 returns to Suzuka this weekend for the first time since 2019 in what’s set to be a special race for Yuki Tsunoda.

The event has been off the calendar for the past two seasons due to the COVID-19 pandemic, meaning Sunday’s race will be the 22-year-old’s first Japanese GP in front of his home fans.

“In one way, Japan is just another race, but in another it is one I have been looking forward to ever since I started in Formula 1,” said Tsunoda.

“I know there will be a lot of interest from the fans for this race. I can’t imagine what it will be like, so it will be very different to every other race weekend, but I am looking forward to enjoying a new experience.

The race means Tsunoda will get to drive in front of friends and families, but that isn’t the only reason why he’s excited to return to Japan.

“When I’m driving, I only pay attention to myself and all that support will give me extra energy on every lap in a positive way and that will be helpful and nice,” Tsunoda explained.

“Many friends and family will be coming to Suzuka and I know that even those for whom I couldn’t get passes have bought tickets. And a very important final point, I get to eat Japanese food for a whole week!”

To mark the occasion, Tsunoda will drive in a custom helmet design. Here’s a look at all the new designs for the 2022 Japanese Grand Prix.
