George Russell was at the top of the timesheet of a free practice session, just like that. FP2 in Miami went very well for Mercedes. The Brit still has no explanation for the sudden fast pace of the team.

That is exactly what he says to Sky Sport. Lewis Hamilton 's teammate sounds surprised at his team's sudden fast pace. In the previous races, Mercedes was very disappointing, although Russell managed to grab a nice P4 in Imola on Sunday and Hamilton even secured a podium earlier in the season.

Russell reluctant

Russell: "I can't explain why we have such a good start to the weekend. We did know that the conditions were good. When it's warmer, we actually go a lot better. Let's just not get ahead of ourselves yet; it's just practice. We made the best of it and it's a positive day. Definitely the best Friday of the year!"
