Russell: Hamilton could have won more races than Verstappen

Nobody expected it after the Australian Grand Prix, but Max Verstappen has completely dominated this season. For example, after the Mexican Grand Prix, he holds the record for the most wins in a season. Initially it was still in the hands of Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel with 13 victories.

You might think that Lewis Hamilton with his dominant years held this record, but it is remarkable that the seven-time world champion “only” achieved 11 victories in a single season.

George Russell thinks his teammate could have won so many races had the competition for Hamilton not been so much higher. This is what Russell tells NOS.

“If Lewis had a lower quality teammate in his dominance period, he would probably have won a lot more races than Max now.”

Flawless Verstappen

Russell says he doesn’t want to detract from Verstappen’s performance this year. According to the Briton, the world champion has been “excellent and obvious” all season. The Dutchman proved it again at the Mexican Grand Prix. Verstappen knew everything he had job assignment On the medium tires driving laps in 1:22 minutes, except for the two laps during the virtual safety car.
