Top ten drivers of 2022 – #4 George Russell

Mercedes has found in George Russell the man who will be able to take over from Lewis Hamilton once the seven-times World Championship retires, his 2022 campaign vindicating Toto Wolff’s decision of putting him in Valtteri Bottas’ place. Enjoying a lot of internal support and with his confidence sky high after a great start of the season, Russell drove brilliant for most of the first part of the season and was particularly impressive in wet weather conditions. While seeing Hamilton reborn from the ashes and started to outqualify him in almost every race in the second part of the season took a tool on Russell’s morale, he kept his head down, never panicked or made silly mistakes, although in Suzuka and Austin he was, by his own standards, far from where he should have been.
