“As you know, George is a very respectful person. He is super talented and there is already a lot of mutual respect. He will certainly be quick and will want to win.”

“I remember saying before the duel with Alonso that I wanted to beat him right in the first race. I expect George to feel the same and approach it with the same attitude, otherwise, he wouldn’t be a winner.

Despite anticipating a future battle against the young F1 British star, Hamilton reiterated that he wishes Russell to succeed throughout his career.

“I am in a different position now in my career and I really wish him success. There will come a point when I will stop racing. As my teammate, he’ll be the next British driver I want to see win the World Championship.

For now, Hamilton is 8 points down in the F1 title race with just two races go. Lewis might want to win now because who knows? maybe the competition next season is extremely tough.
