F1 2023 – The improvements that Russell must undertake
The main area where George Russell needs to improve, and the evidence that he is capable of doing so, is in his ability to consistently perform well in Formula 1.
Despite showing potential for winning races, there are still areas where he can improve, such as avoiding unnecessary incidents on the track.
George Russell is a Formula 1 driver with potential for improvement. He has shown glimpses of success, including winning the Brazilian Grand Prix in 2022, but there is room for improvement.
Mercedes, who signed Russell, and Russell himself, are both focused on improvement. Russell acknowledges that he can do better and there are several incidents in the 2022 season where he could have performed better.
These incidents include clashing with other drivers at the Singapore and United States Grand Prix, a start crash at the British Grand Prix, and a collision with Sergio Perez’s Red Bull in France.
These incidents are common among drivers running closer to the front, but Russell should work on avoiding them in the future in order to become a formidable wildcard in the lead battle.
A small improvement from Russell would make him a significant threat over a full season.
Russell has the potential to be a top-line driver, but he needs to work on his racecraft and avoid unnecessary incidents on the track.
The best drivers rarely get caught up in such scrapes, and that Russell should be given time to adjust to the pressure of running closer to the front.
There is plenty of evidence to suggest that Russell is more than capable of the kind of hard, decisive, and fair driving that often defines the very best drivers in Formula 1, and that with experience and hard work, he will be able to achieve the level of success he is capable of.
It is mentioned that if Mercedes produces a consistent, frontrunning Formula 1 car in 2023, George Russell could be a formidable wildcard in the lead battle.

George Russell’s performance in Formula 1, specifically his ability to make quick and effective overtakes.
While Russell has had some incidents where he could have performed better, such as clashing with other drivers in Austria, he has also shown moments of excellent driving.
Examples of Russell’s successful overtakes in Spain, Miami, Monaco, Canada, and Suzuka, showcasing his ability to be patient, clever, and decisive in battles with other drivers. Russell is just as capable of swift, improvised overtakes to gain track position as he is going wheel-to-wheel with those at the front of the grid, which is something that usually separates the good and the very good grand prix drivers.
Russell doesn’t need to do anything that he hasn’t already shown he can do, and that with more experience and comfort at Mercedes, he will be able to improve further.
There is a counterpoint to the incidents where Russell has been judged to be at fault, and that for each of those examples, there are also moments where Russell has been exceptionally good in battle.
A sequence of corners in Spain where Russell was able to hang on around the outside at Turn 1, squeeze Verstappen on the exit of Turn 3, and then cleverly delay his turn-in for Turn 5 just enough to stop Verstappen from getting a run on him.
A sprint race fight with Verstappen that was key to setting up his victory in the following day’s grand prix, where Russell was patient and clever, dummying a move into Turn 1 enough to force Verstappen to defend and compromise his exit, which allowed Russell to attack and finally pass Verstappen on the third attempt.
