Lewis Hamilton is ‘sensitive’ and could become ‘irritated’ by new Mercedes teammate George Russell
Hamilton and Russell form a formidable all-British driver lineup at Mercedes, but some have tipped their relationship to turn sour over time
Lewis Hamilton has been described as “sensitive” by a former Formula 1 champion who has predicted fireworks between the Briton and his new Mercedes team-mate George Russell.
The Silver Arrows enjoyed a surprisingly good first race of the season in Bahrain, with Hamilton making the podium and Russell finishing fourth.
They had not expected to be able to come away with anything more than a fifth-placed finish, but took advantage of Red Bull’s mechanical disaster late in the race.
