Russell has driven incredibly well and even finished above Hamilton this season. Many have claimed the youngster is currently Mercedes’ best driver given Lewis Hamilton’s poor form, but Wolff isn’t ready to accept that.

The team principal has backed seven-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton and says it’s just bad luck the Briton is going through. He was even unlucky at Imola after getting stuck in traffic and the DRS train.
