George Russell Salary: How Much Will Mercedes F1 Pay Him In 2022?

And moving to Mercedes doesn’t just mean he deserves a better car, a better team to showcase and prove his talent; but it also means he’s getting a lot more salary compared to Williams.

At Williams, Russell earned an estimated £ 876,000. But at the Silver Arrows, Russell is said to have a salary of £ 5 million.

What is Russell’s current net worth?

According to Express, the Brit is currently worth a million dollars.

This is a small number compared to his colleagues, but one must not forget that Russell is only 23 years old and has yet to take his “big career step”. Success in a team like Mercedes will automatically put him in the spotlight of the global mainstream, which in turn would attract a lot of sponsors.

In addition, of course, there is the enormous increase in salary.

George Russell always knew where his future lay

After his move to the Silver Arrows was officially announced, Russell stated that he had never felt any uncertainty about his future. This is something that many in the F1 community were certain of, but there was still some skepticism about the Williams driver making the step up.

Regardless of that, Russell had assurances from team principal Toto Wolff, as he said: “I never had the impression that I would not have the opportunity.” He added, “Toto said to me, ‘When did I ever let you down? You’ve always played since you came to Mercedes and I’ve never let you down. “
