I do agree that the colors will confuse viewers – if anyone watched recently the Australian Final with Djokovic and Murray, they were both wearing the same color clothes (black versus navy black) and it was very hard to tell them apart and that was knowing which side of the court each player was on and they don’t really have the same hairstyle.
The only way I could tell Schumi and Rosberg apart was by checking if the helmet was red or yellow and sometimes it was hard to even see that depending on the car’s angle.
One of them has to change the color of his helmet and since Hamilton joined Mercedes, I really think it should be him.
BTW, is the visor on the helmet a different color? Is that how he might be trying to set his helmet apart from Nico’s?
