Russell admits to making several mistakes.

Mercedes shows impressive speed during the qualifying session, using its updated W15 to secure pole position for Russell. In a close battle with Max Verstappen, Russell managed to set an identical time in Q3 before the Dutchman. However, during the race, Russell struggled to maintain his lead. Although he initially defended against Verstappen, he eventually gave in to Lando Norris and made a crucial mistake, allowing both Norris and Verstappen to overtake him. A subsequent collision with Oscar Piastri caused Russell to lose a position to his teammate Lewis Hamilton, although he managed to regain it and finish in third place.

Russell expressed disappointment in Mercedes’ post-race report and admitted to making several mistakes that hampered his chances of victory. However, he found solace in the fact that the disappointment of a podium finish demonstrates the progress they have made. Russell emphasized the team’s constant improvement and its status as one of the fastest cars on the track over the weekend. He recognized the difficult conditions and the consequences of his mistakes, which allowed other drivers to overtake him. However, Russell praised the team’s pace, its ability to react and expressed his anticipation for the next race in Barcelona.

Hamilton, on the other hand, faced a challenging weekend. Despite showing promise in free practice, he only qualified in seventh place. However, at the end of the race he managed to climb to fourth place, earning valuable points for the team. Hamilton acknowledged the team’s progress and expressed his gratitude to the hard-working people of Brackley and Brixworth who contributed to his recent improvements. Although disappointed with his own performance and the mistakes he made, Hamilton remained optimistic about the car’s performance and promised to come back stronger in the coming races.

Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff celebrated the team’s first podium of the 2024 season. He praised the diligent work being done behind the scenes at Brackley and Brixworth and acknowledged the efforts that led to recent success.

“It was a promising weekend,” said Wolff. “We have been making progress recently and introducing updates that are working well. In terms of performance, it seems that we are improving with each Grand Prix.

“Everyone’s hard work at Brackley and Brixworth is paying off as we take our first podium of the year. It is gratifying to see that your dedication is being rewarded. We hope to maintain this positive momentum.

“When we look towards Barcelona, ​​it is a track that really challenges a car. We are looking forward to getting there and having a clear idea of ​​our level of performance,” she emphasized.

“Today’s race presented its challenges,” Wolff admitted. “Finishing in third and fourth place, considering our recent results, is undeniably positive.

“However, I must admit that both drivers are aware that we could have achieved more. We certainly had the potential to secure an additional position or two and maybe even challenge for the win.

“Therefore, there is a touch of disappointment, but in the end, if they had told us before the weekend that we would finish in third and fourth place, we would have accepted it with great pleasure,” he concluded.
