Mercedes bring back iconic meme

The meme in question refers to the drivers’ parade at the United States Grand Prix in Austin, where Russell sharping turns round to face the camera with a glaring stare.

Russell later revealed at the end of the season that he had actually intended to look at a certain corner of the track, but he was distracted by a fan in the stands and ended up missing the corner he wanted to inspect.

In a post on the official Mercedes X account, the team gave their rendition of the meme, with a team member dressed in Russell’s race suit and helmet walking away, before sharply turning to face the camera.

And it wasn’t long before fans shared their love for the iconic moment.

“LMAO admin [crying-laughing emoji]”, wrote one user.

“George is never leaving his helmet with you again”, said another.

However, not all fans saw the funny side of it.

“First couple were cute but this concept isn't funny enough to be milked so much... hopefully this is the last one”, wrote one fan.
