‘We are closing the gap pretty rapidly’: George Russell insists Mercedes CAN challenge for the Formula One title next season… as Lewis Hamilton’s team-mate describes ‘huge motivation’ to overhaul Red Bull world champion Max Verstappen

George Russell has stated a Formula One title is a realistic aim for Mercedes next season. Mercedes currently lie third in the constructors’ championship, a distant 249 points behind Red Bull, while Dutch driver Max Verstappen has already comfortably secured the drivers’ title, with 416 points to Russell’s 231. It is definitely exciting going into next year and I think there will be a huge amount of motivation within the team. Russell, in his first season with Toto Wolff’s team after moving from Williams, has outperformed his more illustrious stable-mate by 15 points in a promising start to his top-level career.
