With Mercedes locking out the front row at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix, George Russell says he and Lewis Hamilton will be free to race each other.

George Russell and Lewis Hamilton will start the Sao Paulo Grand Prix from P1 and P2 respectively. Asked if Mercedes will be allowed to race each other, George said they definitely will.

“There definitely won’t be any team orders,” the Briton said.

“But I think between the two of us we will definitely be strategic to try and get that win for the team. I think as we saw in Mexico that we both did the same strategy and ultimately it affected us both.

“Sitting here right now, we probably don’t know what the right strategy is going to be. So, you know, we’ll race each other fairly, for sure.”

George added he is sure Mercedes will put each driver on a different strategy.

“And I’m sure we’ll probably be splitting the strategies tomorrow to try and cover all options. And, you know, hopefully one of us comes away happy tomorrow.

“But I think we, we both recognise based on recent experience, we’re probably going to have to go two separate ways,” Russell concluded.
