Russell boosts market value in Hamilton’s car

George Russell has upped his market value “enormously” with his performance at the wheel of the ill Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes in Bahrain. Former F1 driver Heidfeld commented: “For the first time in that car, Russell did a fantastic job. “Bottas only did what was expected of him but Russell really surprised me. It has raised suggestions that Mercedes may not need such a highly-paid driver like Hamilton, if Bottas and Russell lock out the front row of the grid in his absence. Another talking point in Bahrain is that Russell’s performance puts Bottas under serious pressure to hang onto his Mercedes seat for 2022.
