Toto Wolff says at the beginning of 2022 “you could say George was doing very well, and then in the last third of the year, it was Lewis”.

In a year-end interview, Toto Wolff discussed George Russell’s performance throughout 2022, and touched on the fact that he was having better results in the first half of the season, while Lewis Hamilton outperformed him in the second.

“George is always very self-critical, which is one of the assets that make him a future world champion,” the Austrian told GPFans.com.

“He has now been thrown into the Mercedes works team, we keep developing the car, and if you ask me now, the final results look different.

“Like at the beginning of the year, you could say George was doing very well, and then in the last third of the year, it was Lewis.

“But in terms of optimum performance, we have the combination of the two best drivers, the strongest line-up.

“And therefore, we are always going to see those cycles, in my opinion between the two,” Wolff concluded.
