George Russell claims beating Lewis Hamilton in debut Mercedes season would NOT make it successful

FORMULA 1 driver George Russell has denied claims suggesting his season will be a success if he simply beats Lewis Hamilton. Following the race at Silverstone, Russell still sits 18 points ahead of team-mate Hamilton. However, Russell has denied claims from Jacques Villeneuve his season would be ‘made’ if he beat Hamilton. “But I would not see my season as a success purely because I’ve finished ahead of him more times than he had finished ahead of me. Thus far Russell has achieved three podium finishes and finished in the top five of the first nine races of the season – the only driver to do this. The next race will take place in Austria this weekend, where Hamilton has already arrived to prepare.
