Mercedes has always claimed that it never divides its drivers into first and second. The team will have a new face next year as Lewis Hamilton moves to Ferrari. In view of this, George Russell, who remains in the team, claims that even with the arrival of a newcomer, the team will not have any protections for one rider.

“Since we all heard Lewis’ news, he has been incredibly professional with the team. The working relationship with all Mercedes employees within the team remained unchanged. Our team has always been great and has given us equal opportunities. It was like that from the beginning.

As soon as the car is renewed, we get it at once. I know that in other teams, after updates, the car is given to the drivers at different times. Mercedes has had this system all along. They want to give both drivers equal opportunities and no matter who my new teammate will be, this trend will not change,” said G. Russell.

The Briton also commented on a hypothetical scenario if Max Verstappen became his team-mate: “He’s extraordinary, but we’d give him a car that’s complicated, hard to set up and hard to drive.”
