After a pit stop on the first lap in Sochi, Alexander Elbon and Lando Norris were behind George Russell, and for a while the Williams driver successfully held them back. But his pace gradually dropped – and the team figured out why.

George Russell: “I liked to fight with Red Bull Racing and McLaren, although it was not easy to contain them. It helped me that we had excellent speed on the straights. It’s great that we treated each other with respect.

The mistake ruined my race, but I would still have to make a pit stop – the Hard tires would not have held up to the end of the distance. I lacked speed. At first I could not understand where the speed went, but now the team figured it out.

It’s just the tires. There were problems with the temperature of the rubber – it was much higher than we expected, I saw it on the display in the cockpit – and it confused us. Without going into details, while the tires are in the operating range, they behave great, but if they overheat, and you start attacking, they quickly degrade.

It was risky to make a pit stop at the end of the race, but according to the information that we had at that moment, we considered this decision to be correct. “
