Williams team boss Jost Capito thinks one of the candidates for Mercedes 2022 seat, George Russell, has what it takes to become a world champion.

George Russell has been impressing everyone since he made his Formula 1 debut with Williams in 2019.

The young Briton is one of the two candidates to drive for Mercedes next to Lewis Hamilton in 2022, and Williams boss Jost Capito believes he will be able to challenge for the world title if he gets the opportunity.

“Yes. I absolutely believe that,” Capito said when asked if he believes Russell can win the world title.

“But it’s difficult to compare the different drivers over the different decades. They all were very different, but George shows everything a modern race driver has to have to get to the very top.

“And I’m convinced he will be world champion. I don’t doubt that a second. Of course, when I came in, I knew that he is good, but he impressed me in various areas.

“It’s not just his talent, it is his professionalism, how he is working, that he can also switch off and do something different and then focus again fully on racing.

“He’s very much balanced and he’s just unbelievably talented, but also working hard. He knows that his talent alone is not enough anymore.

“Also, I like his mindset, how he works, how he speaks, how he handles the media, for a 23-year-old, it’s very, very impressive,” concluded Capito.
