Mercedes' George Russell will be hoping to continue his impressive start to the Formula One season in the Miami Grand Prix on Sunday, May 8.
The Brit has finished in the points in all four of the races in 2022 thus far and took third position in the Australian Grand Prix to claim his first podium of the year.

Russell is fourth in the drivers' standings on 49 points, 21 ahead of team-mate Lewis Hamilton, who has made a slow start to the new F1 campaign.
The 24-year-old raced for Williams last year and recorded his maiden podium in the Belgian Grand Prix, where he finished second behind Red Bull Racing's Max Verstappen.

Russell claims his experiences with Williams might be giving him an edge over Hamilton as Mercedes continues to lose more ground on Ferrari and Red Bull.
"It's just been difficult, really difficult position for us as a team," he said. "Perhaps with my struggles at Williams driving very difficult cars, maybe that's helped in some small regard.
"And it's Q1 and Q2 now for us is massively important whereas previously for Mercedes that was a breeze, it was almost like a build-up session getting ready for Q3.
"Lewis is going to come back incredibly strong, I have no doubt. He's definitely going to push me all the way. I think in terms of results we're definitely getting the most out of it and things have definitely fell our way in these first four races.
"It gives me and I'm sure it gives the team confidence that when the car improves, we'll be there to get even more points on the board. But as I said before this weekend, we can't sustain this level of these results if we're in the pace where we are."
