After getting his first career pole position at the Hungarian Grand Prix Qualifying, George Russell says Mercedes is “going to be absolutely going for it”.

After an amazing final qualifying lap, George Russell grabbed his first career pole position at the Hungarian Grand Prix!

After the session the young Briton was ecstatic.

“[I’m] over the moon, absolutely buzzing,” Russell said.

“Yesterday was probably our worst Friday of the season, and everybody last night was working so hard. We didn’t really know what direction to go in.

“And then that last lap, got round Turn 1, went round Turn 2, Turn 2 was mega, and the lap time just kept on coming and kept on coming.

“I came across the line, looked at the screen and saw we went P1, and that was an incredible feeling.”

As for the race tomorrow, he promises to ‘go for it’.

“We need to look into it and understand where that came from today. There’s a few ideas we had, but at the end of the day, there’s no points for qualifying.

“We generally have good race pace, but the Ferraris looked very fast on Friday. We’re going to be absolutely going for it.

“But either way, that was a pretty special day, no doubt.”
