When journalists suggested he was ‘the leader’ inside the team, Lewis immediately denied it.

George [Russell] and I work equally as hard together, I would say, to help drive the team and be a part… row just as hard as everyone else in the team.

“And, yeah, I would say to just reassuring just the strength that I know I have mentally, and also just reassuring us that I still love my job. I still love the challenge even if it’s not fighting for wins.
