Mercedes driver George Russell finished the French Grand Prix in third place after struggling through the race.

The British driver admitted struggling after the restart, but recovered and took the opportunities from Ferrari’s misfortunes to achieve his result.

“The pace was strong. We really struggled with the warm-up after that restart and Checo was all over me. I am happy to have made it over the checkered line and home in P3,” Russell said in the post-race interview. 

“I saw him struggling when Sainz got past. I had that one opportunity and the rules are pretty clear because I had one tire in front of him in the corner. Front-wheel to rear wheel and he didn’t leave me much space but glad to bring it home in P3 and a double podium,” Russell concluded.
