GEORGE RUSSELL SIGNS WITH MERCEDES

It’s another good new to hear that George Russell – the Norfolk youngster has been signed up by the world champions Mercedes.


The 18-year-old King’s Lynn racer just joined Mercedes, the winners of the previous three drivers’ and constructors’ F1 championships.

According to the team manager, Toto Wolff, he is a sportsman that has great potential.

“George has shown impressive form in the junior categories and we’ve been keeping a close eye on him for a while now,” he said.

George is to compete in the GP3 Series with ART Grand Prix this season, with rounds to occur during Formula One weekends. The junior Mercedes programme experienced breakthrough last year, with Pascal Wehrlein racing in F1 with Manor and picking up some tremendous qualifying performances, and also earned the second points scoring finish for the team at last year’s Austrian Grand Prix.

“It is an incredible opportunity to have the backing of the Formula One world champions. I’m proud to have been given this kind of recognition for all the hard work that’s gone into my career over the years so far,” Russell said.

Lewis Talks About Title Turnaround

With Lewis is holding the reigns of major grand prix events right now, it is definitely true that all eyes are focused upon him.


He states that the total turnaround has been crazy, but at the same time, it might get changed all over. The title fight that ensued at the beginning of the F1 season this year has been crazy. Lewis Hamilton feels that he has definitely been able to fight and hold onto the titles that he gained. He refused to dwell on the lead or the engine penalties that were laid on. During the summer break that he is on, he is refusing to dwell on the crazy happenings that occurred on the race circuits a few months back.

Among the seven races he won six of them. This winning streak has led to a point deficit to his major rival, Nico Rosberg. He is leading over Nico with a total of 19 points. This stretches back to the collision that he had with Rosberg back in the Spanish Grand Prix. This event had taken both men out of the race. That was because Hamilton has tried to regain the lead when the first lap occurred.
