Williams F1 Driver
George Russell is the current driver for the Williams F1 team and 2018 FIA F2 champion.
Russell’s debut F1 season in 2019 saw him out-qualify experienced teammate Robert Kubica at every race weekend, becoming one of the few rookie drivers to achieve this.
His journey to F1 follows a successful career in karting and strong seasons in FIA Euro F3, after which Russell won the 2017 GP3 championship and was signed on to the Mercedes F1 Young Driver Programme.
In 2018 he stepped up to FIA F2 against karting rivals Alex Albon and Lando Norris who he managed to beat and, in the process, earned a seat with Williams in F1.
