George Russell expectations not met by Mercedes despite getting better of Lewis Hamilton

British Formula 1 star George Russell has admitted his 2022 performances since moving to Mercedes have not met his own expectations heading into the season. Russell finally moved to the Silver Arrows from Williams ahead of the new campaign and has consistently gotten the better of his seven-time world champion teammate Lewis Hamilton.

Russell had to show patience before he was allowed to join Mercedes, with the octuple world champions dominating the sport since 2014. The Silver Arrows have won the constructors title each year since 2014, winning plenty of races along the way – but now they are struggling.

In seven races this season, the 24-year-old has finished in the top five in each race while also securing two podiums. Russell admitted to believing he would have won his first F1 race by now during the off-season.

“I think if you told me prior to the season that we’d be seven races in and I wouldn’t have a victory to my name, I would have definitely been a bit disappointed with that,” Russell told Formula1.com. “But I think given the pace of the car and given where we’ve been as a team, I’ve been reasonably pleased with how I’ve performed.
