George Russell explains he “wanted to try something different” in his last Bahrain Grand Prix Qualifying run, but it didn’t work.

George Russell had a disappointing Bahrain Grand Prix Qualifying, as he only managed to qualify in P9. After the session he explained what happened in his botched final flying lap.

“I think the third row was a minimum,” Russell explained.

“But we’re not here to accept the third row, and I had one shot and I wanted to try something different.

“I wanted to try a much harder out-lap to see if that changed the feeling of the car to give us a shot to fight for the second row or the front row.

“But clearly it didn’t and it was totally the opposite. Obviously I’m disappointed with myself to have made that error and obviously lining up ninth is far from my expectations.

“But that’s how the game goes and the race is tomorrow,” the Briton concluded.
