George Russell ‘will find out next month’ if he is to form all-British dream team with Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes with 23-year-old desperate to ‘go up against the best in the world’

George Russell wants to join Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes to prove what he is capable of – and says he will find out next month if he has landed the hottest ticket in Formula One. Russell was catapulted into the spotlight when he was handed the keys to Hamilton’s Mercedes at the Sakhir Grand Prix in December after his compatriot tested positive for Covid-19. Just yesterday I had someone running after me in the street and they were gobsmacked, saying, ‘I can’t believe it, I can’t believe it, are you George Russell?’. And does that include the public telling Russell they want to see him in a Mercedes?. ‘There has been a few of them,’ he says with a smile.
