“George’s performance reminded me a lot of Fernando Alonso when he drove at a wet Spa for Minardi in 2001.
“He was mighty impressive in a car that clearly was not up to the job. In those conditions, the ratio of driver to car changes – and we saw that with George on Saturday.
“He doesn’t have a front row car but in those tricky conditions in qualifying, he trounced people with far better cars than he had.
“In my view, there is only one decision for Mercedes next year with regards the second seat,” concluded the Briton.
