George Russell: 2021 Net Worth, Salary and Endorsements

George Russell is a British racing driver. He has been an incredible asset to the historic Williams F1 team alongside his teammate, Nicolas Latifi. The Briton is also a Mercedes junior driver, which has now led him to secure a seat for the 2022 F1 season alongside 7-time world champion, Lewis Hamilton.

He also got a chance to drive the Mercedes F1 car during the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix when Lewis Hamilton missed the race due to Covid-19. Russell almost pulled off a stunning race victory only for the team to mess up the strategy and deny him of it.

Like all other drivers, Russell began his racing career in karting. He first began competing in 2006 and has not looked back since then.

On-track Achievements

Russell took his first championship, the 2014 BRDC Formula 4 Championship. He fended off challenges from the likes of Arjun Maini and Raoul Hyman.

A year later, he placed sixth at the 2015 FIA Formula 3 European Championship. But in 2016, he improved his position to 3rd in the championship.

He moved to the GP3 series in 2017 and became a Mercedes and Force India test driver. In the same year, he won the GP3 title from compatriot Jack Aitken.

During the following year, Russell joined the FIA Formula 2 Championship and won it in his very first season. He fended off the likes of fellow F1 newcomers Lando Norris and Alexander Albon.

Following his Formula 2 championship win, Russell signed for Williams in 2019, making his début at the 2019 Australian Grand Prix, alongside Robert Kubica.

Russell is contracted to drive for Williams until the conclusion of the 2021 season. After a tough couple of seasons, Russell finally broke the point-less streak at the 2021 Hungarian GP, where he secured his first points for the team. Soon, over the very next race weekend at Spa, he also managed to claim his first podium, followed by another top 10 finish at Sochi. As of the Russian GP, Russell has managed to secure a total of 19 points in his career.

Following the 2021 season, Russell will be making a giant leap onto the championship-winning Mercedes AMG, replacing Valtteri Bottas.
