Mercedes tease Russell with hilarious Golden Globes comparison

Mercedes' social media team have brilliantly pointed out an uncanny resemblance between F1 driver George Russell and award-winning actor Cillian Murphy, while the latter claimed a Golden Globe in the 'best actor' category.

Russell was the subject of many memes over on Formula 1 Twitter (X) throughout the course of 2023, and his 2024 has seemingly started in the same fashion.

The Brit admitted last month that he was nervous for the shooting of the F1 2024 introduction due to the pressure of having to top his iconic pose from the title sequence last year.

Now, one of his more photogenic poses from last season has been compared with man of the moment Murphy, whose performance in the hit Oppenheimer film won him a Golden Globe earlier this week.

Russell's acting prowess

With F1 still very much in its winter break, it's not the first time in recent weeks that Russell has been compared with a film star.

Just before Christmas, Mercedes' social media team released a brilliant video of somebody donning Russell's helmet recreating Hugh Grant's dance to Jump by the Pointer Sisters from the festive favourite Love Actually.

The 25-year-old has now been labelled the 'Best Actor at the 2024 Golden Globes' by his team – not a bad accolade!
