At the Singapore Grand Prix Qualifying, George Russell got eliminated in Q2. The Briton explains the problem that led to his early exit.

George Russell will start the Singapore Grand Prix from P11, due to an issue he had with his car in Qualifying.

After the session the young Briton explained what happened.

“I was struggling with something to do with the brakes and the engine in P1, that was pushing me into the corners and it kind of felt like I had a throttle on as I was going in, and I didn’t.

“The tyres felt good but I just couldn’t get round any corners. It is such a shame, we probably couldn’t have done any better in Q3 because we couldn’t resolve the problem,” George said.

“It is one of these things that is really frustrating. It is disappointing for myself and the team, Lewis was looking good and the car was looking really fast but we just couldn’t make it work.

“It is definitely an encouraging weekend but encouraging doesn’t mean anything we are here to score points.

“Where we deserve to be fighting is probably top three,” Russell concluded.
