Inside George Russell's glam lifestyle, driving a £140k car and enjoying romantic holidays with hot girlfriend Carmen | The Sun

July 6, 2023

BRITISH F1 racer George Russell outshone his more illustrious team mate Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes last season.

The rising star, 25, will be hoping to finish on the podium at this year's British Grand Prix.

He moved to Mercedes last season – earning a bumper £5MILLION payday.

That helps the talented racer continue to fund his enviable lifestyle… even though he's still some way short of team-mate Hamilton's mega £40m pay-grade.

Russell currently rents a flat in an affluent area of London, but he has plans to join many F1 colleagues in millionaires' playground Monaco.

Away from the racing circuit, the Norfolk-born star drives a £140,000 car – fittingly a Mercedes AMG GT.

Russell already leads a playboy lifestyle, despite his tender years.


Rising star Russell was born in King's Lynn to father Steve and mother Alison.

The youngest of three children, he has a sister, Cara and older brother, Benjy.

He caught the racing bug when he started go karting at the age of seven alongside Benjy, who was involved in competitive karting.

But by 18, he moved to Milton Keynes to be closer to British Formula 3 Championship racing team, Hitech.

In early 2017, he joined Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport as a part of their junior driver programme.

A year later, Williams announced that Russell had signed a multi-year deal to drive for their team.

As soon as he was thrust into the spotlight, Russell's love life was placed under the microscope.

He met stunning Seychelle de Vries, who was once linked to Max Verstappen, when he raced in Formula 2 in 2017.

They reportedly dated for three years, before calling it quits.

Now, Russell is courting the stunning Carmen Montero Mundt.

Last year, the pair were spotted on holiday in St Barts together kissing on a sunlounger and frolicking in the sea.

While last August, Russell was spotted enjoying a break in Santorini.

More recently, they shared some loved up snaps enjoying the country side.


Call it fate, but Russell has always had a penchant for Mercedes.

On top of his current swanky Mercedes AMG GT, he has always favoured the car manufacturer as his ride.

He's been spotted with TWO AMG C 63 motors that cost in the region of £80,000.

Russell proudly displays his cars on social media to nearly four million followers.

About the AMG GT, that's capable of reaching 0-60mph in just three seconds, he wrote on Instagram: "Love my little rocket!"


One of Russell's many heroes is the late, great Niki Lauda.

In 2017, the up-and-comer got the opportunity to meet his hero in Baku after a race.

Lauda even took the student to a Black Eyed Peas concert, after meeting him at a hotel.

Russell became friends with the three-time F1 champ, and would often lean on him for advice.

During lockdown last year, Russell shared a picture of himself reading Lauda's autobiography.

While he was stuck at home when the coronavirus pandemic was at its height, he made sure he continued to workout and stay in shape.

He also fitted an F1 simulator to polish up on his driving skills in his bedroom.


Crucial to Russell is his diet plan.

Regularly, he shares snaps on social media of what he eats – and it's never unhealthy.

From poke bowls to fresh salads, the athlete makes sure he's putting the right food in his body.

Coupled with going to the gym, it's what keeps Russell in peak condition and lean for a race car.

Aside from driving, and working out seven days a week, Russell also likes to play squash and get out on his mountain bike.


Playing and competing in sport just isn't enough for Russell.

When he has some downtime, he's happy to sit in front of the TV and watch a live event.

During Euro 2020, he shared an image online cheering on England. The football fan is a devoted Wolves supporter, like his dad.

While last year, he encouraged his followers to comment who they felt would win the Indy 500, which he was tuned into.

And in 2019, he was in the stands at Twickenham to cheer on England against France in the Six Nations.
