George Russell is fourth in the championship, 21 points and three places ahead of Mercedes team-mate Lewis Hamilton after four rounds; but he says: “I’m not getting comfortable in this position because I know what he’s capable of.”

George Russell says he has “no doubts” Lewis Hamilton will “come back stronger” this season, backing his Mercedes team-mate after a difficult start and praising his “truly inspiring” work behind the scenes.


Amid Mercedes’ unexpected struggles through the first four rounds of 2022, it has been newcomer Russell and not seven-time champion Hamilton who has got more out of the W13 car.

Russell, who made the step up from Williams this season, is currently fourth in the championship, 21 points and three places ahead of Hamilton.


“Lewis has clearly got the pace, He’s incredibly fast and he’s showed that so far this year, but it’s just been tricky for us as a team to get it done when the time is needed.

“When things have been more stable, Lewis has still been massively fast.

“I know there was a bit of a blip last weekend but I have no doubt he’s going to come back and the way he’s pushing the team and motivating the team is truly inspiring.

“We all want more. He wants more. Nobody is happy with the position we’re in currently.”

“The combination [of Russell and Hamilton], that’s one of the very few highlights I have at the moment on our journey – how the two of them work together with no friction. On the contrary, it is very, very productive and positive for the team and I couldn’t be happier with the driver line-up.
