Russell: “That did give us more motivation”

A fortnight ago, it seemed for a long time that George Russell was finally going to earn his first points in Formula 1, but he will have to wait. Moreover, the chance of points in Russia seems small in advance for the Williams driver.

Russell himself seems to have left Mugello behind by now. "It was disappointing missing out on those points at Mugello, points that I felt we thoroughly deserved. However, it has given me and the team greater motivation to go out there and extract even more performance from the car", says a combative Russell in Williams' preview.

It remains to be seen whether that will succeed in Sochi. "Russia is a circuit that on paper won't suit us as much as Mugello, but we have learnt some things with the set-up in the recent weeks that I hope will allow us to be more competitive with our nearest rivals.”
