Podium in Abu Dhabi
Formula One
November 26, 2023
Russell finished third in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Formula 1 race at the Yas Marina Circuit Sunday evening.
ANALYSIS
Russell would start fourth on the grid and would spend the early laps sparring with the McLaren duo. The Mercedes veteran would establish Top-5 position and battle there the rest of the way. Russell would fail to reel-in Charles Leclerc in the closing laps, but would promote to P3 after the finish with Sergio Perez serving a 5-second penalty for avoidable contact. The podium finish was Russell's second of the season and a good way to round out the season.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
Russell's first season with Mercedes could not have gone much smoother for the former Williams driver. Earning both his first pole position and first race win in Formula One. Russell regularly outperformed teammate Lewis Hamilton in 2022, making the podium a total of eight times and leading 100 laps by the final go in Abu Dhabi. The driver of the No. 63 finished in the Top 5 fifteen times out of the first 16 races, earning him the nickname "Mr. Consistency" by both the fans and broadcast media alike. Russell picked up championship points 20 times out of his 22 race starts, having only one DNF at his home track, Silverstone. Many of Russell's mistakes on track can be attributed to the understandable difference in handling between Mercedes' W13 and the Williams FW43B, though his occasional recklessness behind the wheel is oddly reminiscent of an early Red Bull-era Max Verstappen. Russell is one to watch as a potential challenger for the World Championship going into 2023, as Mercedes is looking to prove they're still in contention for the title despite Red Bull's recent dominance.
