Making his karting debut in 2006, George Russell rapidly made a name for himself as a star for the future, becoming 2009 MSA British Cadet champion and British Open champion. His dominance continued into 2010 when he collected Super One British and Formula Kart Stars titles and won the Kartmasters British Grand Prix. Graduating to KF3 class in 2011, he claimed the SKUSA Supernationals title and back-to-back CIK-FIA European Championships in 2011 and 2012.

Making his single-seater debut in 2014, George’s natural talent shone through as he won the BRDC Formula 4 Championship title 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 charge a sensational lights to flag victory. His efforts throughout the year saw his win the prestigious McLaren BRDC Autosport Award.

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 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 4 victories, 7 podiums and 4 pole positions on his way to winning the driver’s championship with two races to spare.
