Hamilton not quitting F1 saved me says Russell

George Russell says he is relieved Lewis Hamilton is still racing in Formula 1. When Hamilton, 38, resurfaced for the 2022 season, his preferred teammate Valtteri Bottas had been replaced by 25-year-old Briton George Russell. “In a way, having him as a teammate saved me,” Russell is quoted by Speed Week. “But I think that I’ve now proved what I’m worth and what I can do, so there’s no pressure in that regard.”. Indeed, Russell has arguably had the edge over Hamilton in their two seasons together so far. “I’m there to do my job as well as possible and I think I’m in a very good position,” he insisted.
