Ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix, George Russell says “it’s not going to be straightforward, but I think we always show quite good pace on a Sunday”.

At the Japanese Grand Prix Thursday press conference, George Russell gave his thoughts on how he expects Mercedes to perform at Suzuka.

“I mean, I’d love for it to be as competitive as it was last weekend,” the Briton said.

“But I think it’s going to be a little bit more of a struggle. I think Ferrari have been very fast in the medium, high-speed corners this year.

“The Red Bulls have been really slippery down the straights, which obviously, with only the one DRS zone here, they’ll probably be in a good place as well.

“So it’s not going to be straightforward, but I think we always show quite good pace on a Sunday.

“So there’s no reason why we can’t be in the fight,” Russell concluded.
