The pilot of “Mercedes” Lewis Hamilton said that his new partner George Russell easily adapted to the team.
“George very easily joined the team. Everything is very reminiscent of the time when he worked with us and watched what Bottas and I did. Russell knows everyone, so there were no problems. We work together, often discuss settings, everything is going well.
I don’t even remember when we started working together with George. I remember that at some point he began to appear at briefings and practically became part of the team even before this season. Russell is a very talented racer by nature, very focused. He behaves naturally and tries to work for the benefit of the team. At Mercedes, everyone is happy and working together, ”RaceFans quotes Hamilton as saying.
Russell will make his debut for Mercedes in the 2022 season, having previously played for Williams for three years. The Briton took the place of Valtteri Bottas, who from this year will represent Alfa Romeo.
The first stage of the 2022 season will be held from 18 to 20 March in Bahrain.
