Formula 1 | Latifi: Russell is formidable in the race, despite the image of ‘Mr. Saturday’

Nicholas Latifi has revealed that he is impressed with George Russell, who he has teamed up with since last year at Williams F1. The Briton recovered the label from Monsieur Samedi thanks to his very good performances in qualifying.

But in Hungary, Russell scored points, and Latifi assures that the one who will certainly be at Mercedes next year is also formidable on Sunday.

« Being his teammate I know how fast he is » Latifi said. « I think for the public his performance on Saturday is quite remarkable, and obviously I see behind the scenes, in the data, how fast he is. »

« But I think besides his raw speed, his ability to always put it all together when it counts, on the lap that matters, is very impressive. »

“Even outside of the ‘Mr. Samedi’ label, there’s a lot going beyond qualifying. He handles the little details of the race and a lot of the peripheral things he’s very, very good at. C is quite impressive. « 

He predicts a great future for him at Mercedes F1, while the confirmation of the transfer could come before Monza: « I think if he goes to Mercedes we have already seen what he was capable of doing last year in Bahrain, so I have no doubt that he will be in the rhythm right away. . «
