What's in a name? Often, especially in sport, it can grow to represent something beautiful. In football, even an old farmhouse can develop a romantic air. La Masia is the original home of Barcelona's youth academy, arguably the best in the world and certainly one of the most famous.
The name meant so much that it remained when, several years ago, the facility moved out of the 18th-century Catalan farmhouse that first gave its recruits a roof to sleep under in the 1970s.
No Formula 1 young driver programme has that same romance. However, being a proper F1 protege can offer something better, as Williams's 2019 signing George Russell can attest. Russell is one up on the would-be Lionel Messis of this world. He's spent the last year with a front-row seat to the Lewis Hamilton/Mercedes show, which is as educational as it is spectacular.
