The Truth About George Russell

156 562 Näkymät

Coming off the back of a stellar debut for Mercedes, George Russell can only take confidence from how quickly he adapted to the W11 in Lewis Hamilton's absence. The man from Norfolk stunned many throughout the weekend as he progressively got better and better throughout the weekend. Now we have seen him compete in a good car, how good do you think he is?

  • he won Bottas easily without even knowing how to operate the car properly and had to be talked through by the engineer. that crappy weekend showed how great he is.

  • Russel is truly something special. He has shown that he is already performing at a remarkable level. However, he lacks consistency and is prone to making mistakes. He and lando are like opposites, one is developing but almost never makes a mistake and always delivers. The other performs at a level of someone vastly more experienced but is prone to mistakes.

  • Damn you have such enormous bias yet you still dare to title your video "Truth about George Russell". He completely outshined and outclassed Bottas? Where? He got better start and that's it, then he got 5 laps on new tyres to pull the gap before Bottas was pitted for his new tyres cause Russell couldn't shake him in first stint so Merc gave him some breathing space. I tell you what is the truth, George Russell is being most hyped driver in history of the sport and its by miles yet he still didn't manage to beat his average teammates despite driving faster car (which was confirmed by Claire Williams herself). Latifi straight up outperformed Russell this season in races but everyone acts like it didn't happened. Give yourself a favour and title next video about him "My biased opinion on George Russell" cause you wouldn't know what truth is if it was sitting on your face and taking a dump into your ear

  • George isnt a great driver, its all the car, isnt it? Whats all the hubbub all about. Anyone can jump into a MERC and win the F1 Championship. Any driver, save Bottas, would win the Driver's Championship! Stop all this yakiti yakyak about Russel. Put Alonso beside Bottas and he looks like Schumacher! Just stick anyone in there and they will win, except Bottas.

  • I do like George Russell. I feel he has a Prost/Stewart quality about him but without the ruthless/vicious streak. Very determined, focused and level headed. I do feel he will be a World champion sooner rather than later. Not only that, I feel he will be a multiple World champion, too!

  • Racing with boots a size smaller than his feet, couple days practice in Hamilton’s car, completely new pit crew and racing engineer in his ear and still took Bottas to school! Was gutted for him that he didn’t take the win, such a fuck up by the Mercedes team. Then a week later back in the Williams car fighting at the back of the grid... with no tantrums. A pure professional and future world champ. Would love to see him in the second seat for Mercedes and battle with Hamilton for a season before Hamilton retires!

  • The difference in attitude of Max and George/Levlrec is what I believe seperates them. George's father doesn't knock on Mercedes doors and threatens them to sign him immediately or else they're looking somewhere else. He's patent and wise like a Owl. He's knows exactly when to strike and doesn't crashes into others to ruin their Race as well. He knows to win a Championship he should learn to conserve his tyres and that's exactly what he's doing now whereas Max i guess, thinks that raw pace will win you races

  • At 62 and a life long F1 fan I am sad to say I stopped watching a couple of years ago when two average drivers, due to driving for Mercedes become unbeatable and it become tedious. Rosberg and Hamilton were/are very average drivers in an exceptional car. Mercedes don't win everything due to their drivers, it is due to the fact they are Mercedes and If George Russell proved anything this weekend, it is just that fact. I would also go as far as to say I think Mercedes deliberately scuppered George Russell as, if he had won in a car not designed for him with unfamiliar controls it would make what I am saying an undeniable fact. Its become a farcical sport. Of coarse GR is an incredible driver but please don't put him in a Mercedes. More boring F1 Hamilton would never allow him in the team if they drop Bottas and I think he would take an early retirement to avoid being shown up.

  • George drove a car that Lewis set up come on quit w this. You just love the arrogant Prince George... he has just as much arrogance and self regard as any of these guys. The posh plumy tones seems to enthrall you guys Val Bottas drives his ass off. Geo is not superior to Val...he will not do better than Val GR is driving Lewis’s car and has Lewis mechan and Toto.... All he has to do was drive yes learn some but The car has been hooked up to the n th by Lewis ....and geo will have the same results as vB maybe it’s the mental errors Lewis is rock hard mentally Quit w the hyperbole Geo at true front of the pack requires diff decisions I think he will inherit a great car or get Val B car and it is not quiet Lewis’s level of set up.

  • I like everything about George. He has personality, yet professional, knows how to work as a team but remain selfish and wants those victories and poles. It’s hard to think he’s only 22. He acts like someone in their late twenties. This guy with Max and Charles are the next trio of superstars in F1. Also what a lot of people don’t know is that George knows the secret to Lewis’s success with tyre management as George even stated Lewis gave him some tips in F2 before he jumped to F1 and that helped elevate his performances.

  • Everyone's talking about his performance as if he won. He didn't. And no - he wasn't "within millimeters" either, he got 9th... In the most dominant car in F1 history... When the top dog wasn't even in the race... And the 2nd best got taken out on lap 1... He did great to put Williams in Q2, but Hamilton, Verstappen and Leclerc are leagues above.

  • I’ve lived all over Europe for years at a time and have seen enough of its the people and cultures to see there is such a thing as National characteristics. The Brits always come through as street smart, calculating and pragmatic - more so than others. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that they’re an Island race, I don’t know, but those are perfect characteristics for a racing driver. It’s not surprising then that they have produced more world champions than Germany, France, Italy and Finland put together.

I’m on numerous fb f1 groups and even people who don’t hate him don’t wish him back soon. Most people enjoyed an entertaining race without him there. It wasn’t just a set 1-2 merc snooze fest like normal. It was a brilliant race from start to finish. The podium has different people up there for a change etc. if that’s what it’s like with Hamilton isn’t there then I wish him never to come back

Mercedes is champion, hamilton is champion and bottas; is runner-up. and not anything that would or could change that, he wanted almost two races ago. why would he have to add bottas and / or mercedes points ??? Now; there are three at stake or to be analyzed: hamilton, russel and mercedes. If russel is as good as he appears to be, hamilton is not that good. If Hamilton and Russel are that good, the rest are very doubtful. Here is the point, if the Mercedes is very superior to the rest of the cars. which is what I really believe.

  • Well said - spot on about everything. (Edit: earned yourself a new subscriber for that, by the way) Russell's talent was always obvious, and while people may joke about powerpoints, it's a sign of how cerebral he is when it comes to racing. And, yes, his similarity to Hamilton in terms of mentality really came through in that race - one of Hamilton's great strengths is, when things go wrong, to simply keep his head down and focus, and Russell's ability to do that so well in this race was striking. It is a team, though, and kudos do really need to go to Bono, as well. The calm voice that has steadied Hamilton for so many years once again did an excellent job. I think he really has given Mercedes a headache. In their ideal world, he would step up to take Hamilton's place when Hamilton retires, but Hamilton may very well stick around for several more years, and I think they are going to have to move Russell up come 2022 - they can't afford to lose him to another team. One of Mercedes strengths is that they operate smoothly as a team, and having two top drivers truly challenging one another does not generally go smoothly, no matter how much they may respect each other [in the beginning].

  • Huge story, racing people. It let us write about it, read about it, dream about it. Russell is a big talent and has the aura of a champion, a little great human being in his very quick exposure. It does not matter why he didn't win, it took a sabotage or a big misfortune to steal his first victory. Tough! To me he is a gallant and a courageous young man.

  • Lewis signs a three year contract, Bottas stays on year on year, Russell will be another victim of Lewis Hamilton marching on. Russell didn’t get the pole and finished p9 with a self inflicted mistake/puncture. So take a rest and reflect.

  • I was happy to see Perez get the win and all things considered, notwithstanding his performance in that race he deserved it (more than Russell) despite George showing us that he hasn't been overhyped in the least. George's day will surely come if Perez managed to pull that win off considering he basically came from the back of the grid.
