In the round-up: Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff says junior driver George Russell has all the qualities to be a potential candidate for promotion to the world champions.

What they say

Wolff was asked about the purpose of Russell’s post-season test for Mercedes at Yas Marina:

The test is not benchmarking him because we are absolutely certain that he has the qualities of a potential future Mercedes driver.

He has the raw speed, he has the talent, he has the intelligence. There is a reason why he’s won F3 and F2 as a rookie, it hasn’t been done many times before. And he has a flawless record in Formula 1.

Quotes: Dieter Rencken

Not one driver can comment unless they have done it and then when they do they will respect it and anyone who sits outside and passes comment does not understand motor racing as oval racing is as tough as any sort of motorsport at exists https://t.co/lNDSdITOPu

Why was the #AustralianOpen not postponed. I don’t like tennis I find it boring but really? Tennis is supposed to be healthy. The players are going to have lungs like they smoked an entire Cuban tobacco harvest by finals time. @F1 have the right idea monitoring the fires.
