Lewis Hamilton will welcome George Russell to Mercedes with open arms with Brit set to be confirmed as 2022 team-mate

And while Hamilton has always been supportive of Bottas, he says Russell, 23, is the future of the sport. Hamilton also says that he does not feel threatened by Russell’s arrival in the team as he has “nothing to prove”. Hamilton, 36, added: “I have raced against some incredible drivers as team-mates. “If anything, if it does turn out I’ve got a new team-mate, I’m in a different place in my life, I’m excited to see the youngsters coming through. “It’s not that I want to lose to a youngster but I’m excited to see the progression of the sport as I am a fan at the end of the day.
