, Lewis Hamilton tipped to ‘come back stronger’ by George Russell amid F1 struggles as Mercedes continue to work on car

LEWIS HAMILTON has the pace and will “come back stronger”, says Mercedes team-mate George Russell.

Hamilton finished 13th last time out in the Emilia Romagna Grand Prix, but Russell does not believe his bad fortune will continue for long.

He told Sky Sports F1: “Lewis has clearly got the pace.

“I know there was a bit of a blip last weekend but I have no doubt he’s going to come back and the way he’s pushing the team and motivating the team is truly inspiring.

“Lewis will come back stronger, I have no doubt. He’s definitely going to be pushing me all the way.

“I’m not getting comfortable in this position because I know what he’s capable of.”

Despite Russell’s message of encouragement, Hamilton has ruled out his chances of a comeback championship win.

But the Brit could be keen to challenge for the championship next year after dismissing claims he could retire before the end of the year.
