Hungarian Grand Prix: In the space of 24 hours, F1 turned upside down

On Saturday, their car was on pole position for the first time this season – a year in which their average deficit to the pace over one lap has been more than 0.8 seconds. “I think we just got it perfectly in the window on the last lap,” Russell said. “Yesterday was probably our toughest Friday of the whole season,” Russell said. A first pole in Mercedes’ least competitive season for 10 years was unthinkable until Saturday afternoon. Now Russell is there, a first win will be far from easy. “I am just so happy for what it means for us as a team, the progress we’ve made,” Russell said.
