Apart from that, he has managed to qualify on a regular basis.
Therefore, it is not difficult to imagine that he has a few outfits wanting to sign him if, for some reason, he does not go to Mercedes.
One outfit that indicated its interest in him was Alpine.
Alpine approached Russell through a YouTube video
Who were the two teams?
But the second team was Alpine F1’s Marcin Budkowski.
“I think they are all pretty tied in for George. And so, George, if you are watching this and if Toto hasn’t come back to you yet, give me a call,” he said.
This just shows how many teams see potential in Russell.
Can Baku break Russell’s points blank?
Even though Russell has had some incredible performances in F2, his luck has been dry with Williams so far.
The only points he earned in the last two years were back in Sakhir when he drove in place of Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes.
While on Saturdays, he performs well, he does not have a car of that caliber that can push him ahead.
Many might say that Russell will not make it to the top 10 this weekend. However, the beauty of Formula 1 is that nothing can be said for certain.
Baku has played host to a bunch of surprises.
