After Bahrain Grand Prix FP1&2, George Russell stays optimistic and says Mercedes “made big changes and we need to see if they worked”.

Mercedes’ first two free practice sessions with the W14 did not turn out the way the team had hoped for.

However, George Russell, who finished FP2 in P13, remains optimistic.

“There are a few teams looking strong,“ the Briton said.

“Aston Martin are the biggest surprise, they have clearly done a good job over the winter.

“We need to look over the data last week to this week to see what we learned. We made big changes and we need to see if they worked.

“The window that the car was set up in, the car feels better but that doesn’t mean it is faster. We also have a new rear wing, we need to see if it’s operating as we expect.

“Clearly, we want to be higher up the timesheet than we are. That is no secret. We need more downforce, more lap time.

“It’s a new car and we need to reach its full potential,” Russell concluded.
