Ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix, George Russell says Mercedes is “sort of happy that these low downforce, high-speed circuits are behind us now”.
Mercedes’ performance has been oscillating throughout the 2022 season, depending on the characteristics of the tracks.
George Russell says the team is happy to leave the ‘high-speed circuits’ behind.
“Our car certainly wasn’t performing at its best around [Monza],” the Briton said.
“I think we have a good idea why that is, and [we are] sort of happy that these low downforce, high-speed circuits are behind us now.”

As for Mercedes’ performance at the next race in Singapore, George said:
“On paper, Singapore should suit our car. But when we look back at the street circuits of Monaco and Azerbaijan, our car doesn’t fare too well over the bumps.
“So, we’re not too sure how it will fall out. But we need to keep on pushing, keep on improving the car.
“I’m pleased that we’ve got a clear direction we need to go [in] now,” Russell concluded.
