Slicks did not bear fruit in Russell

George Russell took a risk in Q3 and tried to get the pole position out of Max Verstappen by switching to soft tires with the track still dry.

He hit a wet line at the first corner and skidded onto the turf, which has to settle for a P8 position. It was a risk worth taking according to the Mercedes driver, but this time it didn’t come out.

Mick Schumacher talking to Sky Sports

The Haas driver recorded his best rating in F1 with a P6 finish saying: “The car felt great, especially in these rainy conditions.

“I found grip everywhere I put the car, which is obviously what I wanted. Unfortunately, in these last tires, this was not the case. Until then, I was very, very happy and it’s something I can build.

“I always like to run in wet conditions and go fast and try to find a limit. Especially in a classification like this and on a track like this, there’s a lot of potential for riders to show what they can do, and I felt like I was able to do it today.

“It will be hard, for sure. But we will do our best.”
