Hamilton's Exit Sparks Mercedes Revival

Russell Embraces Hamilton’s Ferrari Move

02/06/2024

George Russell believes Lewis Hamilton’s departure to Ferrari will revitalise Mercedes, seeing it as an opportunity for a fresh start and a chance to ignite new energy within the team.

Russell views Lewis Hamilton’s move to Ferrari in 2025 as a fresh opportunity for Mercedes F1 to rejuvenate, describing it as a “new spark.”

The Briton, currently outperforming his teammate this season, is unperturbed by the prospect of his team’s future without the seven-time world champion.

“My job is to beat my teammate and get the most out of the car,” Russell confides.

“It’s a new beginning for the team; so many people here have shared success with Lewis, but change often ignites a new spark for everyone.”

“It’s the same for Lewis, moving to Ferrari, and it will bring something new for us next year too. We need to adapt and evolve, and we are building this life without Lewis from scratch.”

“It’s good that Lewis is leaving now, rather than at the end of 2021, as that would have been tough for the whole team.”
