In recent competitions, George Russell was hampered due to the strategy and safety of his car and therefore remained 55 points behind Lewis Hamilton. However, now the driver explains that this season he feels confident to change his position.

“The aim is to win a race and finish second in the constructors’ championship. If I can catch up to both and then finish behind Lewis, that’s not a problem. Nobody remembers who finishes second among the drivers”, said George Russell in the interview.

In a Formula 1 press conference, Toto Wolff, head of Mercedes, said that the decision to keep the drivers was not at all difficult and that he considers the duo’s presence as one of the strongest in the competition, as they have always played important roles in the team.
