George Russell says Mercedes has found “more gains in the past two or three weeks than we found over the whole winter”.

Mercedes is currently engaged in a struggle to revamp their car, in an effort to put it on the right track to be able to fight at the top of the grid again as soon as possible.

Ahead of the Australian Grand Prix, George Russell said a lot of progress has been made in a short period of time.

“Big changes are incoming,” the Briton said.

“There’s nothing that you’ll see on the car this weekend, because naturally you can’t get things brought that quickly to the car.

“But I think in due course, we’ll see some big changes and hopefully the lap times represent that.”

Asked if these ‘changes’ have been tested in the simulator, George said:

“We’re working really hard at the moment with these changes. I won’t give too much away. And we need to make sure they work as expected.

“But as we’ve said a number of times, we’re probably finding more gains in the past two or three weeks than we found over the whole winter by clearly developing in the wrong window.

“So yeah, it’s definitely heading in the right direction,” Russell concluded.
