|Russell feeling happier with FW42|
As the ROKiT Williams Team continues to work through the process of finding a solution to their performance issues with the FW42 there have been those small moments when the team is making progress, even if it is only small steps forward.
One such moment seems to have taken place during the opening Friday practice sessions for the 2019 Hungarian Grand Prix where George Russell and Robert Kubica had to cope with wet conditions in the second session. According to Russell after having struggled with their wet setup in the last race in Germany they were able to make a setup change to the FW42 that saw a big step in performance from the FW42 in the wet conditions. George was able to lap the Hungaroring circuit 2.5 seconds faster after completing back to back tests using the setup that they rain in Germany and then making the changes.
In an interview by Autosport.com
George was asked as tio what had changed with the FW42. He would respond by
saying: "Just overall grip."
George added: "I'm not
convinced. It's been a very tricky day for everyone, so although it's been
relatively good for us, we can't take too much out of it and say we've
solved all of our problems.
