Russell puts Mercedes rumours to rest: 'Giving it my everything'

George Russell still has a chance to be Lewis Hamilton's teammate at Mercedes next season. The Williams driver is having an excellent year and seems ready for the next step. The driver keeps his focus on the next race.

Russell will drive for Williams this weekend in Hungary for the final race before the summer break. The English driver has yet to score any points for his team but has come close on a number of occasions. In Hungary, Russell hopes to get his first points.

"I’m really looking forward to heading to Hungary this weekend," he states in the press release from Williams. "The Hungaroring is a circuit that I love, especially the second sector; it’s fast and flowing, and you don’t get a break from turn four to turn 11, but when the car is nailed it’s such a fantastic feeling to really extract everything from that sequence of corners."

Atmosphere in Hungary

Besides that Russell always has a great time in Hungary. "Budapest is a city that I really enjoy too, it has such a great atmosphere. I am going to be giving it my everything to make sure we end the first half of the season strongly, especially coming off the back of a number of strong races recently."
