Russell and Hamilton’s Canadian GP Duel: Trust, Tactics, and Team Triumph

George Russell shares thoughts on competing against Lewis Hamilton: “Racing against one of the legends..”

George Russell looks back on his clash with Lewis Hamilton during the Canadian Grand Prix.

George Russell expressed his confidence in Lewis Hamilton, stating he felt he could "rely" on him during their intense side-by-side racing in the final stages of the F1 Canadian Grand Prix.

Despite being in front of his more seasoned team member for most of Sunday's race, Russell fell behind Hamilton following his attempt to pass McLaren's Oscar Piastri at the last chicane.

Russell had to veer off into the escape area at the chicane, and due to the wet conditions, he significantly fell behind.

Nonetheless, Russell's faster speed and the edge he had with his tyres enabled him to overtake Hamilton through a daring maneuver at the chicane.

Hamilton maintained his position in the center of the track, causing Russell to move to the right, away from the optimal racing path that remained wet.

Russell experienced a brief incident in the corner because of the wet track but managed to hold onto his spot, securing both his and Mercedes' initial podium finish of the year.

During the post-race FIA press conference, Russell commented on his competition with the seven-time world champion, noting, “Competing against Lewis is always a tough but fair challenge.

"Competing alongside one of the legends, you're aware you can rely on them. It was truly remarkable to witness that in the final moments."

Mercedes had their best performance of the season this weekend, with Russell securing his second pole position in his career.

Russell believed that without making several avoidable mistakes, victory could have been achievable at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

"He mentioned, 'Honestly, if you had informed us before this weekend that we'd secure the pole position and third place, we might not have taken you seriously. As Max pointed out, it was an incredibly challenging race for everyone involved."

"If you're even a millimeter off, it can throw everything off. In my case, it was simply a series of crucial errors at pivotal moments that ultimately prevented us from being contenders with the leading duo near the race's finale."

"I was leaning towards switching to the medium tires since I believed they would offer a competitive advantage towards the end. I'll have to review it because, in retrospect, it appears we had an excellent pace. Were both of you using the medium tires? Yes, they were on the Medium, and with me on the Hard tires, I believe we could have been in a very strong position to compete. However, looking back, there are many adjustments you might consider if you knew how things would unfold, but I'm satisfied with the advancements we've achieved."

"Truly honored to be part of this group as we've been making significant progress with these improvements, and it's genuinely yielding positive results."
