George Russell: Lewis Hamilton looks like a 25-year-old, look at his skin

Many wonder how much 'youth' is left in Lewis Hamilton, and whether he will be on F1 tracks for many more years. By all accounts, the Briton is ready to be part of this story for many more years ahead of us. His colleague, George Russell is optimistic about Hamilton's future.

“You’ve only got to look at his skin – he looks like a 25-year-old! I think I’ve got a few more wrinkles than he has,” -Russell said, as quoted by crash.net “I think there’s many years left in Lewis and I guess he’s at a stage now in his career that as long as he keeps on enjoying racing and he sees a chance to win, then why wouldn’t you continue? We both believe in this team." Hamilton is still a driver who is at the top, but his ambitions are much bigger, i.e.

his goal is to be the champion. However, this season it is unlikely that he will succeed in that. “He’s still performing at a really strong level and we’re pushing one another. And it’s an exciting time for the sport, so he’ll be here for years to come”.

Gilles Villeneuve

Circuit Gilles Villeneuve would be a problem for the Mercedes team who had great performances in the last race. Many Mercedes fans are optimistic that Hamilton and Russell will show equally good performances.

However, let's wait for the race and make a judgment.. “It’s a really different circuit,” he added. “Barcelona, with the new changes, is all medium/high-speed corners. In Montreal, it’s all slow-speed corners.

Barcelona has a very smooth Tarmac. Here, it’s very bumpy, we’re hitting all the kerbs, it’s a street track. And finally, in Barcelona we had the three hardest tyres and, here we have the three softest tyres.

So there’s no guarantees that we’re going to be competitive – or as competitive as we were in Barcelona. At best, I expect it to be quite close with us, Aston Martin and Ferrari. But the spirits are good, we feel like we’re in a good place, things are going in the right direction. And mixed conditions, so no reason why we can’t have a good weekend”.
