Mercedes’ Trackside Engineering Director says George Russell is “one of those that you’d say no doubt he’ll win a championship at some point”.

After the Belgian Grand Prix, Mercedes’ Trackside Engineering Director Andrew Shovlin was asked about George Russell’s performance, and he said the team believes George is a world champion in the making.

“He’s a hugely professional driver who’s working very, very hard,” the Briton said.

“And he’s one of those that you’d say no doubt he’ll win a championship at some point, providing we can give him a car that’s fit for that job.

“And we’re obviously working very hard to achieve that. But he’s very technical. He adapts well to different conditions.

“All good drivers get better over time, they’re focused on looking for every opportunity to improve.

“And when he got pole here [at Spa] last year it was a surprise for us, because we didn’t have a good Friday. We did make some changes to the car, but he did a fantastic job in qualifying to get that.

“So, he’s super focused and no doubt that he’ll be part of much success for the team in the future,” Shovlin concluded.
