Nico Rosberg fires a warning to his old team-mate Lewis Hamilton as he says the seven-time F1 world champion ‘can only LOSE’ alongside George Russell at Mercedes next season

Lewis Hamilton is in a lose-lose scenario alongside George Russell at Mercedes next season, according to his former team-mate Nico Rosberg. Rosberg, who partnered Hamilton for three years and beat him to the world championship in 2016, believes Russell has ‘nothing to lose’ as the incoming driver and that Hamilton finds himself in an increasingly ‘uncomfortable’ situation. Sportsmail revealed last week that Toto Wolff decided to draft in the 23-year-old Englishman to the Mercedes team as he plans for life after seven-time world champion Hamilton. Hamilton, who turns 37 next year, took time on Tuesday to welcome his new team-mate to Mercedes via social media, claiming that Russell has ‘earned his spot’.
