As to Russell joining Mercedes, I believe it will most definitely be interesting. Isn't Wolf Russell's "manager" or something like that? How will that play into Russell driving for Mercedes while Hamilton is still doing so, all while Mr. Wolf is heading up things...

Again, I'm new to F1 but sometimes it seems rather incestuous and confusing at times...

I'm very happy for Ricciardo however. I read he basically led the entire race so it's not like he only won because he took advantage of the carnage between Max and Hamilton.

If you could stream it, F1 has an on demand streaming package including all the races, practices and qualifying, along with a number of analysis shows. $27 a year, so quite a value. The catch is that there is a two day delay before you can watch it.

I think that while Russell may claim that his not "Hamilton's #2" he is going to have to prove that out on the track. I'll bet that he is on a pretty short leash. He also knows that he is there to learn and that, given that Hamilton will probably retire in the next couple of years, he will get his shot.
