Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says Lewis Hamilton and George Russell are the best line-up in Formula 1 right now, “if we give them the right car”.

There’s no doubt that the line-up of Lewis Hamilton and George Russell is one of the best ones in Formula 1 today.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff, however, was asked if the believes it is actually THE best current F1 line-up.

“If we give them the right car, yes,” the Austrian said.

“I think there’s a few others, Max [Verstappen], you cannot doubt him. He’s already one of the best drivers. If you give our [drivers] a great car, then we’ll be right there.”

While Lewis’ performance in 2023, in a difficult car, has been superb, George had some ups and downs throughout the year.

However, after the summer break he seemed to get back into his groove.

“Everybody needs some feedback. He’s a very strong character and he came out of the summer [break] very strong,” Toto continued.

“He changed his approach a little bit and that was good. Then it swung the other way around. Lewis performed in an extraordinary way but I think these swings they happen.

“They happen from track to track with this fragile cars, you know you can come from a very good weekend to a very bad suddenly.

“Everyone needs an arm around the shoulder. I have my wife who puts an arm around my shoulder,” he concluded.
