After the arrival of the Hungarian Grand Prix this Sunday, Briton George Russell literally shed a tear after scoring his first points for the Williams team

George Russell finished Sunday’s Hungarian Grand Prix in eighth place to score his first points for Team Williams since making his F1 debut with the Grove team in 2019 (he had scored his first points in F1 with Mercedes the last year in Sakhir).

The young Briton couldn’t hide his emotion at having finally managed to score points for Williams after the start of the event, shedding a few tears as he began his series of media interviews.

The young Briton went on to explain in the Hungaroring paddock that he didn’t expect to be so emotional, but that it sums up the journey he and Williams have made since the 2019 season.

“I literally shed a tear, which I didn’t expect. Russell said. “I probably wouldn’t even have shed a tear if I had won my first race in F1, to be honest. This is what it means to me. “

“It means more things that I can’t express in words, thinking about what we’ve been through the past three years. It’s like you’ve been fighting for something for three years and you finally get it. “

“On our side of the garage, the second stint was probably the best stint of my entire career. To keep Danny [Ricciardo] behind, to keep Max [Verstappen] behind, to cut the gap to 20 seconds on the cars in front, that was exceptional. I gave everything I could, like every race, but this time I came home with something. “

After the Hungarian Grand Prix, Team Williams now sit eighth in the constructors’ championship with ten points scored on Sunday.
