Azerbaijan F1 Grand Prix LIVE RESULTS: Leclerc ousts Perez with Verstappen in third in practice two, Hamilton in 12th

Russell speaks after ‘difficult day’

George Russell has admitted that both Ferrari and Red Bull have an “inherently faster car” than Mercedes.

The Brit finished FP2 in seventh place, while teammate Lewis Hamilton was a long way behind in 12th.

At the end of the day Russell said: “It was a tricky day, we weren’t as competitive as we would have liked. Another tricky track to get the tires in the right window.

“You can see that for some drivers their fastest laps came right at the end of the run, while Ferrari and Red Bull seemed to be able to turn it on.

“At the moment they just have a faster car than us and we did everything we could to try to catch up.

“When we’re full on the tires we’re not going to fully close that gap – or we definitely won’t close that gap, they’re just too far forward.

“So that’s probably 50% of our problems – the rest is just the lack of performance that we have at the moment.”
