George Russell says Mercedes can now “start throwing more performance” at the W13, and expects to challenge the top teams in “three, four races”.

After five difficult races, Mercedes has made a big step forward at the Spanish Grand Prix. George Russell believes the team will only get better.

“I believe Mercedes are the best in the business and if anyone can solve these issues and bring the performance back, we can as a team,” the Briton told Channel 45 in Spain.

“I’ve been seeing how the team have come together through these difficult moments and being able to find this solution for one is an achievement in itself.

“But now I truly believe we can just start throwing a lot of performance onto this car.

“I think it will still be a good three, four races before we start to truly compete on the same level as them [Red Bull and Ferrari].

“But we are definitely slightly more in the mix,” Russell concluded.
