Mercedes got off to a bumpy start in 2022. Both drivers George Russell and Lewis Hamiltonare struggling to find pace as they find themselves in the third fastest car on the grid.

Ex-F1 driver David Colthard believes both drivers need to help the team build a championship car. He said sunday mirrorWhat actually happened is that Ferrari and Red Bull are flying off the blocks and there are some who may judge that George’s first few races were not up to standard. I would not agree. I think he handled the car and the situation well. You can only drive the car you received. His next task will be to be the voice, along with Lewis Hamilton, that enables his Mercedes team to develop a winning car.”

George Russell has made a decent start with Mercedes given the car situation at the Brackley-based team. He is fourth in the championship with a P4 and a P5 finish.

George Russell did better than his teammate in Saudi Arabia, and by a wide margin at that. David Coulthard said in his praise: He was brilliant with Williams. That led to him being courted by Mercedes, as everyone knows. I was super impressed – George lived up to my expectations. For me it is an ingenious all-round package.

He added, “He has speed, he has excellent communication skills. He is a modern version of a top professional racer. I thought that before the season started and since then I haven’t seen anything to change my mind.”

It is now up to the Mercedes engineers how they work with the feedback and data from the two Brits. The team needs to make changes quickly as they have nothing to lose and it would take everything to win.
