Lewis Hamilton George Russell

George Russell won his maiden race in the season that Mercedes considers a true nightmare. When Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time world champion, was forced to break his legacy, his stunning winning streaks, and several records, how come, George Russell, a young newcomer, managed to provide the pride of rounding off the season with at least one win? Is he better than Hamilton? Will he be a challenge for the seven-time world champion in clinching his eighth world title? Looks like one of the former F1 team bosses came out to predict a \”10 times\” worse scenario in Mercedes with Russell than how it was with Nico Rosberg.

When there is Lewis Hamilton in a team, it is always him who wins, no matter who is the guy sitting next door. This is what has happened in history. None of his ex-teammates has won the championship over him except Nico Rosberg. The German-Finnish driver won the 2016 Formula One world championship with Mercedes by beating Lewis Hamilton. This is something big to digest by the Briton himself and his fans which never repeated again till today. But there is a famous saying, \’History Repeats Itself\’ which sits perfectly with the current situation with George Russell.
