Car not the same after Russell raced it says Hamilton

Lewis Hamilton, who has now recovered from covid-19, says his Mercedes car felt different after George Russell substituted for him last weekend in Bahrain. “It felt like I had spent a lot of time away from the car so I had to get back into the habit,” Sky Italia quotes the British driver as saying. The balance was not the same and I had to work to get it back where it was. The 35-year-old said Russell, who has now returned to Williams after his Sakhir assignment, did “an amazing job” in his car. As for his week holed up in a Bahrain hotel room with covid-19, Hamilton said: “I don’t want to talk about it but it was certainly an experience.”.
