Hamilton plays down risk of Russell conflict

Lewis Hamilton does not think his relationship with teammate George Russell will become strained in 2023. This year, 24-year-old Russell arrived at the works team to replace Valtteri Bottas – and not only out-scored seven time world champion Hamilton but became the only Mercedes race winner in 2022. He got the most out of it in every race,” Hamilton added. However, Hamilton said his fellow Briton was well prepared for the task. “In previous years he was with us more and more often and he already knew the engineers. And Hamilton does not expect that to change in 2023, even if Mercedes is back in the championship fight with Red Bull and Ferrari.
