George Russell says he tries to “do the best job possible”, but compared to Lewis Hamilton, he’s “still got room to improve in a number of aspects”.

During the Friday media sessions George Russell gave his thoughts on the state of Mercedes’ package going into the Monaco Grand Prix weekend.

“Now we know this is our baseline, we can really build off that and find a lot more performance,” the Briton said.

“I’m definitely confident. This has put us much more in the mix. We had our best result as a team and we were always there in the top three, top four, generally all weekend.

“I think we’re excited to see what the coming races bring. But it’s still gonna take a couple more races until we really find a lot more pace.”

“I just focus on myself and try and do the best job possible – and wherever that leaves me, I’ll sort of review from there.
