George Russell’s meteoric rise has been crowned by joining Mercedes… the man nicknamed ‘Mr Saturday’ oozes confidence and has thrilled so far this season – and he has already shown he is Lewis Hamilton’s heir

The announcement that George Russell will drive for Mercedes in 2022 came as no surprise after his meteoric rise to get to where he is today. Russell though has had to play a patient game ever since that PowerPoint presentation. The pressure to get his first points finish was telling during his second season at the team. But then Hamilton’s positive Covid-19 test meant Russell stepped in for the Sakhir Grand Prix. But the fact that Russell had brought what is at most the eighth fastest car into a points position while Bottas was about to be lapped by Hamilton was another statement made. Either way, Russell has shown that he could very well be the heir to Hamilton and lead the Mercedes team to even more glory in the future.
