Lewis Hamilton refuses to admit he’s Mercedes No1 as team face tough decision after George Russell’s hot start to 2022

LEWIS HAMILTON denied being Mercedes’ top driver and insisted that he works in tandem with team-mate George Russell. Hamilton’s beginning to the campaign has been the polar opposite, and the former world champion languishes in sixth position on the table. However, Hamilton refuted rumours suggesting he calls the shots at Mercedes, and claimed he and new-boy Russell synergistically work for the team’s progress. But Hamilton’s relishing the challenge and insisted he and Russell are up to the task at hand. Hamilton’s optimism was shared by Mercedes’ boss Toto Wolff who explained his theory on how his team can turn things around after the Spanish GP. However, some critics believe Wolff will have to make a choice between Hamilton and Russell soon for the team’s benefit.
