As George Russell’s Williams era comes to an end, the young driver starts talking already about his future experience with the Silver Arrows next year. Indeed Russell is going to be Lewis Hamilton’s team-mate for 2022 and 2023.
While Hamilton is trying to beat Max Verstappen, and take his eighth championship, the young British star explains how he is expecting the experience with Hamilton to look like:
“With the rules changing for next season, I don’t expect to be the one who follows Lewis, while he leads. In the end his going to be down to both of us to work together and push the team forward”.
“With these new rules, there will be improvements and many updates, so we need to work throughout the whole season. You don’t know who is the fastest until the first test, but in the end the ones who achieve the best results are those who work better together”.
Russell also felt free to express his point of view on the current championship battle between Mercedes and Red Bull, but most of all between Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen, divided by just 8 points with 2 races to go.
Russell commented: ”What Lewis did in Brazil is amazing. Even when everybody thought the championship was totally in Max’s hands, I knew it was not over. Indeed it is pretty stupid to bet against Lewis and Mercedes. I think I’ll have a great opportunity working with Lewis next year”.
