George Russell is a driver I've been championing ever since I saw him race in Formula 2, sadly in F1 he's never had the machinery to really prove his worth but finally, with Lewis Hamilton having to withdraw from the Sakhir Grand Prix it's Russell who will step in for the 7 time world champion, and now he finally gets a chance to show F1 what he's really made of.

  • Hype? You must have some worth and talent to be hyped in the first place and he has it all. It's not like he came off the streets or his daddy is a billionaire who owns the team or is a Russian oligarch. He earned it just like Lewis.

  • Think its very obvious, that Lewis was so lucky in so many races, while all the bad luck one driver could have, only happened to Valteri. So please do not come up saying 'Valteri ist just to slow'. Bullshit! I'd love to see Valteri beeing NOT as cooperative as he is so far. I'd love to see Valteri going mad and even brutal on Lewis ... so then we'd have a proper competition. So far, Valteri is too much a teamplayer

  • Russell on top of the practice proves any driver can win a championship with the fastest car, Lewis, you ain't Shumac, and definitely not Stirling Moss, you are Johnny Broadbent, todays cars are sims on wheels, no need for a driver.

  • Well you had some great videos lately and some good content as well. And lately you seem to be on a roll and the videos seem to be getting better and better all the time. I would almost say you hit this one out of the park but you fell short. Number one, what is up with your love affair with Max Verstappen? You give Max Verstappen way too much credit!! I feel he has a very poor attitude even given the right equipment and the right team which he does have and he's still not delivering. Because in his mind he thinks he's better than he really is. And that is just it!! Unless a driver has the right mindset they surely cannot take the team and themselves to the next level. Max has shown this race after race after race. Especially this year!!! Number two, you are definitely spot on with Charles Leclerc and George Russell. Those two drivers are ready to elevate. So given the right team and the right equipment they will win races and win WDCs as soon as Lewis Hamilton decides to retire of course. Number three, this one you're only 50/50 on. For a guy that says he's a big booster of George Russell I still think you're selling him short by placing him P3 at the Sahkir GP. There is no reason why Mr. Russell cannot win the race. I'm not saying P3 or any placement in the top 10 would reflect badly on George. But all the components are there. He's ready to start winning. And having the advantage of watching free practice I know I'm probably right. So here's my predictions for the race. Qualifying: P1- George Russell, P2-Valteri Bottas, and P3-Max Verstappen. Race: P1-George Russell, P2-Valteri Bottas, and P3-Charles Leclerc. And yes I very much going all out for George Russell.

  • Personally, I think Mercedes would be better off demoting Bottas to reserve driver, buy out Ricciardo's contract with McLaren, stick Russel in the other seat and put Lewis out to pasture. It's been a while since the Mercedes cars were in any way interesting to watch.

  • This is probably not real. Think about it. The f1 higher ups needed more diversity and Lewis winning every race was not fun. So they make up that lewis has covid, a well liked George Russell gets in his place, jack takes his place and now the race will be more exciting. They knew it was getting boring to see Lewis win so they created this to hype up this race. Now he really could have covid but it seems less likely. Stay woke people 👀

  • Mercedes wouldn't have him in the car if they didn't rate him. Hamilton wouldn't waste his time mentoring him, either. I just hope that he doesn't get so much pressure put on him. The trouble this year has been that he has a better car and he's trying to get more out of it than is there. I've seen it plenty of times throughout the decades. He's now in a *much* faster car than he's been in the last 2 years. It's going to take every practice session, and as much time as possible in them just for him to understand it. The steering wheel will have a different configuration of controls, so his muscle memory needs overwriting, for want of a better description, and it will need it again when he returns to Williams. Being on, or even somewhere near the podium will be a solid job. I'd absolutely love him to win, or get a podium, but perhaps I'm more realistic. And being the end of the season, the power-train is going to have a real chance of blowing - it happened to Checo last week remember. Same bit of kit. I wish him all the luck in the world.

  • He will win, the Mercedes is so much faster on this track, on all tracks but more than the previous track said Max Verstappen and i already said yesterday he would win and i still do. 90% of the field would win in this car, Bottas is such an average driver, we all know this and the best wing man you can have, cuz even the top F2 and F3 would win as a rookie and become world champion as well, you don't need to drive on edge like Max Verstappen does every race, 70% is enough, so it will be an easy win for Russell, mark my words.

  • I mean let’s be clear here There is no way that George will win. This is an opportunity for him to shine and I’m sure he will. But he will not win. However I’m not trying to be negative in writing this. Even Mercedes won’t be expecting a win from him but they will be watching his every move to see how he performs. As I said this is an opportunity for him to show his worth and whether he is worth an investment.

  • A few things to point out. Peter Windsor has been on the George Russell bandwagon far longer than you have. He's also a much better judge of a driver. And George getting into a new car at such short notice isn't as easy as you say. He doesn't have a seat fitting, so he will have to endure numbness or pains for 89 laps, he has to learn the steering wheel layout and clutch control, and he has to learn the mechanical and aerodynamic properties of the car on super short circuit where there won't be much room without encountering traffic. Plus he has to learn a new circuit. Unlike what you say, it would be better for him if they are driving on a familiar circuit. Then there would be one thing less to learn!
