George Russell (sprint race winnerMercedes): “It was incredible, I didn’t expect to have so much pace. But I think it shows all the hard work everyone has put in and the progress we’ve made collectively. In the last three races, since Austin, the feeling is really good in the car. It is obviously difficult to know how Max (Verstappen) would have managed if he had been on soft tires
Hamilton in the top 3: “It’s crazy to think that we’ll both start on the front row. lewis (Hamilton) did a great job starting eighth, so it’s going to be exciting. I’m sure Max (Verstappen) it’s going to be brilliant tomorrow (sunday). But we are in a comfortable position in possibly dividing the strategies to seek victory.
Verstappen’s overtaking: “It was a bit difficult because of course it’s a sprint race and you have to manage the balance of risk and reward. Even though I was dying to have this victory, I didn’t want to take too many risks and end up without points, and start at the back of the grid. Finally, we succeeded in overtaking after the third attempt. »
