Will Hamilton be made to regret offering advice to Russell?

Will Hamilton be made to regret offering advice to Russell?

George Russell is hoping to make Lewis Hamilton "regret" words of advice he once received from the six-time Formula 1 champion Lewis Hamilton.

In 2018, then Mercedes junior Russell was fighting for the F2 title when Hamilton kindly imparted information on tyre use.

Russell went on to win the F2 crown that year and earn himself a three-year contract with Williams, albeit season one saw the 22-year-old at the wrong end of the grid.

Russell is naturally hoping, though, to put that advice to good use one day should he find himself in an on-track battle with Hamilton.

"I had a little bit of advice from Lewis about two years ago when I was racing in F2," Russell confirmed in a fan Q&A on SkySports F1.

“We were in a debrief and I was struggling a little bit with something. I was talking to some of the engineers and he just gave me a bit of advice from the driving side.

“It was mainly about the tyres, and how to try and get more out of them. I’d say that was a little thing that helped me find that little bit extra, what I was just missing at the start of my F2 career.

“That’s actually pushed forward into F1 as well and has benefitted me as I moved into F1. That little piece of information triggered something in my mind. I think a lot about it and how I can get even more out of it."

Then with a wry smile, Russell added: “I hope I can make him regret giving me that advice one day.”
