George Russell reveals area he needs to work on in 2020!

George Russell had a pretty impressive debut season in F1 given the circumstances, but he has identified an area he needs to improve if he is to build on his first season. The uncompetitiveness of the Williams has meant that the Brit has been unable to score a single point.

2018's F2 champion came into the season with high expectations, but he has had to sit and watch fellow 2018 F2 stars Alex Albon and Lando Norris score regular points for their teams.

Russell knows that not just Williams need to improve in 2020, with the youngster eyeing his starts as a weak point.

He told F1 reporters in Abu Dhabi: “My story of the last half of the season has been that of getting overtaken by Robert on the first lap, not making good enough starts, not being aggressive enough, then having stronger pace and struggling to overtake him before overtaking him at the mid-point of the race.

“The pace at the end [of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix] was very, very strong for us, I just need to improve on those opening laps.

“Equally I need the car underneath me as well, but it was a good way to finish the season.”
