Good to see Russell in the Mercedes. I feel like he's going to struggle to prove himself in the Williams this season, which is a shame for him. Norris will get a lot of headlines whereas Russell won't. I hope that doesn't cost him.

Ah, okay. I do seriously wonder, though, what Ferrari sees in him, then.

Thanks for the info! :thumbup:

Since the C3 was the softest tyre available for the race weekend, most of those times are definitely not comparable. The two drivers who both set a qualifying lap for the Grand Prix and set a lap on C3 tyres - Vettel and Sainz - were both about a second off their qualifying pace (+1.159 and +0.982, respectively).
