But years before his F1 career began, the British driver was rocking a cute fringe and light blonde hair.

Mercedes posted the throwback snap on Instagram alongside some more recent pictures.

And they added the caption: “George William Russell.

The former Williams driver had a healthy lead over seven-time champion Hamilton a couple of months ago.

But Hamilton, 37, has come roaring back with five podiums in a row – including back-to-back second places in France and Hungary before the summer break.

Meanwhile, Russell came out earlier this week and accused rivals Ferrari and Red Bull of “pushing F1 rules”.

He told Sky Sports: “Spa is going to be interesting. There are some changes to some of the regulations which may bring other teams towards us.

“I think we as a team have a lot of confidence in ourselves and faith that we are doing a great job and there’s no reason we can’t be in the mix.

“There is no doubt Ferrari and Red Bull have pushed the regulations in that regard and we have respected it as the regulation was intended.

“There’s no guarantee that it would bring them closer to us. We know if it was on our car it would make us slower.

“There’s no guarantees, every car is different but it’s not going to help them that’s for sure.”
