Lewis Hamilton is said to have not spoken to George Russel since the 2020 Sakhir Grand Prix, according to rumours. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff says, he knows nothing about it.
In 2020, the championship was already decided when Lewis Hamilton was infected with the coronavirus. The Brit was unable to compete at the Sakhir Grand Prix and Russell got his chance to show how good he really was.
However, Hamilton would no longer talk to Russell due to all these circumstances. At least that’s the rumour, but Wolff doesn’t want to deny that.
”This is the first time I have heard this. However, the feelings of my drivers are the last thing on my mind. I can imagine it though because the competition between these two is very strong. The big boys always feel it when a good guy comes along, and Russell is the next generation,” Wolff said to Sport 24.
