Alfa Romeo pilot» Valtteri Bottas assessed the chances of George Russell to beat Lewis Hamilton at the wheel of a Mercedes car in the 2022 season.
“I don’t think anyone can beat Hamilton on the same cars. Yes, George quickly adapted to the team, because he has been working with Mercedes for several years, but it is very difficult to beat Lewis. I experienced it firsthand.
Every rider has good days and bad days, but Lewis has an incredibly high level. And even on a bad day for himself, he is not so bad. Moreover, he is great at adapting to different conditions, responding to changes. People don’t see it, but in fact he works very hard on it.»— quotes the words of Bottas Racingnews365.
Russell will spend his first season for the German team, before that he was a driver for Williams.
The first stage of the 2022 season will be held from 18 to 20 March in Bahrain.
