George Russell

After a glittering karting career, securing multiple British and European Championship crowns, including an incredible 2 back-to-back CIK-FIA European Championships, George graduated to single seaters in 2014.

Seamlessly transitioning from karts, George was crowned the 2014 BRDC Formula 4 Champion in only his first year behind the wheel. With a heap of podiums to his name in the Formula Renault ALPS 2.0 series, a guest appearance in the final round of Formula Renault Eurocup saw the British superstar claim a sensational lights to flag victory. His efforts throughout the year saw him win the prestigious McLaren BRDC Autosport Award.


In 2015, George made the jump to Formula 3 with Carlin, where he took his first race victory in the opening round. Returning the following season with Hitech GP, to score two wins at Pau and Spa and finish third in the standings.


Switching to the GP3 Series in 2017 gave George the opportunity to compete on the Formula 1 support package. Teaming up with ART Grand Prix, the British racer earned four victories, seven podiums and four pole positions on his way to winning the driver’s championship with two races to spare.


With George’s impressive young career he was rewarded with a place in the Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport junior team, where he was given the opportunity to take to the track for Formula 1 practice sessions with the Sahara Force India Team.


Taking to the top tier of the junior racing - FIA Formula 2 - in 2018, George fought an impressive campaign against fierce competition with seven victories, 11 podiums and fives poles to his name. Victory in the penultimate race at the final round, saw him crowned Driver’s Champion in sensational style.


The realisation of a dream came on 12 October 2018, when it was announced that George would be racing in the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship with Williams Racing. The Brit has impressed many so far in his thus far short F1 career.  


His talents were firmly put in the spotlight when he joined the Mercedes-AMG garage ,filling in for World Champion Lewis Hamilton at the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix, and after a stellar performance left many talking about what is to come.

2021 sees him continue his journey with Williams as he enters his third Formula 1 season.
