A brilliant baseline speed has served George Russell well as he totted up the titles on his way to Formula 1. The Briton stormed to the 2017 GP3 crown and delivered the 2018 Formula 2 crown under immense pressure.
Spotting his potential, world champions Mercedes swooped to sign him up to their junior program in 2017 when Russell already had a DTM deal on the table.
Next comes a debut F1 season for Williams, who have identified Russell as a hard worker and tenacious talent. The Briton joins the returning Robert Kubica for 2019 in a dream pairing for a young gun and is determined to push his seasoned teammate to the max.
