George Russell, with a Williams, in the front row of the Belgian Formula 1 GP grid, is a result of an absolutely sensational performance, especially when you consider the fact that the driver runs on used intermediate tyres, because Williams didn’t have any more. ‘set’ of new tires.
The Englishman’s set time proved impossible to beat for almost everyone, until Max Verstappen crossed the line. It is obvious that this is an immense achievement and it shows that when the differences between the cars are blurred, the drivers’ talent stands out.
Of course, in the middle, you have to discount the fact that there are drivers with more responsibilities (George Russell has absolutely nothing to lose) who didn’t risk so much, for example the Mercedes men, but the truth is that a Red Bull took the pole.
