The helmet’s next appearance was in Qatar during Friday practice and in the Qatar Grand Prix on Sunday (13th). Then it was off to Saudi Arabia where it is was used in Friday practice and again during qualifying (8th).
In 2020 Tsunoda, the 2018 Japanese F4 Champion, was driving for Carlin in F2 and with 3 wins, finished 3rd in the Championship.
Tsunoda had a strong rookie season in 2021 with 7 top-ten finishes, one of those being a well-earned 9th place at the Bahrain GP, his debut race. He would score a brilliant 4th place finish at the final race of the season in Abu Dhabi, and was duly named the FIA Rookie-of-the-Year.
