George Russell is not surprised with the outcome of last Sunday’s Russian GP.
Why it matters: The Williams driver started the race 3rd and crossed the finish line 10th.
- Russell is happy about how the race unfolded, but admits that Williams was not that competitive.
- The young Briton reveals that used intermediate tires were not in his favor at the end of the race.
What he had to say:
- “I thought we had a really strong race today. I don’t think we could have expected much more to be honest. We know the pace of the car; if we’d pitted early, if we’d pitted late, everybody else would have found a way around us.”
- “We went through all of our sets of inters throughout qualifying yesterday [on Saturday], so they were already like a slick before putting them on. So just had no grip out there and lost two positions. So P8 was the maximum out there today [on Sunday], but we’ll take P10.”
