2019 Abu Dhabi post-season testing: George Russell tops timesheet for Mercedes!

George Russell topped the timesheet for Mercedes on the final day of post-season testing at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, from Charles Leclerc and Lance Stroll.

Russell swapped his Williams for the fastest car on the grid in 2019 for Mercedes. With Russell contracted at Mercedes, there are bound to be links with the pair in the future.
