“Thanks for everything, James. Wishing you well in your new role,” Hamilton wrote.
“I am so proud and grateful to have worked with James for the past 10 years. Together we have won over 80 races and 15 titles. This is such a great move and I couldn’t be happier for him. We all need change in order to progress and I’m confident that he’ll push Williams forward to being more competitive. There is nobody more deserving of this role. Wishing you the best brother.”
James also received a personal message from Russell:
“It’s George, James. I congratulate you on your well-deserved new position. I appreciate everything you’ve done for Mercedes and your assistance along my trip. Hello from Bahrain!”
