In the round-up: New Formula 1 CEO Stefano Domenicali is convinced Williams driver George Russell has the potential to be a future champion.

What they say

Domenicali was asked whether he’d prefer to see Russell or Lewis Hamilton driving for Mercedes this year. While he lavished praise on Hamilton, Domenicali said both he and Russell are “incredible drivers”:

George has shown the potential and, as Toto [Wolff, Mercedes team principal] was saying, he will be a future champion, no doubt. So it’s a matter of having both for me, with my responsibility, because both they can do great stuff for Formula 1.
