Russell Looks to Emulate Hamilton's Challenges by Testing Himself Against Verstappen
In a surprising turn of events, George Russell, the rising star in the Formula 1 scene, has revealed his desire to pit his skills against the formidable Max Verstappen as his potential future team-mate. Russell, who joined the Mercedes team alongside Lewis Hamilton in 2022, envisions a thrilling challenge against Verstappen once Hamilton retires from the sport.
Russell’s aspiration to compete against Verstappen comes in the wake of the highly dramatic 2022 season, where Verstappen clinched the championship title in a controversial climax in Abu Dhabi, edging out Hamilton.
