George Russell‘s qualifying session for Williams Racing was anything but positive, as the FIA Formula 1 World Championship debutant will start on the back row of the grid for the 2019 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix – Albert Park.

The reigning-Formula 2 champion was nineteenth with team-mate Robert Kubica behind him, as the Grove-based squad continue to struggle for pace after the earlier practice sessions.

The 21-year old was not deterred though by his own performance and felt he did the best to his ability to extract the most out of the inferior FW42.

“It felt like a really good lap, driving round a mega track at full beans,” Russell said.

“I got in three tidy laps and I am happy with my own performance but obviously we are a team and we want to push for more. The guys around me, the engineers, and myself, we did a really great job to get everything out of the package we’ve got.

“All I can do is drive as fast as I can, and I felt like I did that.”
