Alonso praise means a lot to me says Russell

George Russell says recent praise from F1 legend and rival Fernando Alonso “means a lot to me”. Amid ongoing speculation that Russell is set to be promoted from Williams to Mercedes for 2022, two-time champion Alonso said the 23-year-old’s driving in the lower half of the grid has been “impressive”. Russell has now been asked by Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport if 40-year-old Alonso also gave him that sort of praise personally. “But it means a lot to me to hear something like that from Fernando. He’s one of the greatest racing drivers ever,” Russell added. “So it’s always nice to be praised by drivers like him who you respect very much.”.
