George Russell looking forward to great weekend at Silverstone

George Russell admits he is looking forward to a ‘great weekend’ at the British Grand Prix at Silverstone for his first home race in Formula 1.

Russell will be making his debut at his home race for the first time in his Formula 1 career with Williams, who is also celebrating a home race and Sir Frank Williams’ 50thanniversary as an F1 team principal and owner.
 
Russel said (quote by GrandPrix247): “I am really looking forward to Silverstone as it will be my first home Grand Prix.
 
“I have a lot of good memories of Silverstone and it is my favourite circuit on the calendar.
 
“So, all in all, it should be a great weekend.”
 
While Russell is excited at the prospect of his home Grand Prix, Robert Kubica is hoping for better performance for the team despite the difference and challenge in comparison to Austria.
 
Kubica said: “Silverstone is a big event for the team, as it is our home race.

“We hope for better performance and car improvements, but the track is very challenging.

“It has a lot of high-speed corners and is completely different to Austria.

“We will try our best and deliver what we can for our fans.”
