De Vries has tougher job at Monza GP than my Sakhir 2020 Cameo, says Russell

As Mercedes’ reserve driver Nyck de Vries had made a remarkable debut at Monza GP for Williams with praises spiralling around the blues in Formula One arena, Mercedes’ Russell said in an interview later last week that Nyck de Vries had had a tougher job at Monza GP than his own 2020 cameo for Mercedes.

In the matter of the fact, latest remarks from Mercedes’ George Russell, who had shown a superior scale of agility and awareness this season with a Mercedes F1 car that has been no match to Ferrari or Red Bull, came forth as Nyck de Vries made a last-minute debut into Monza GP for Williams after Alex Albon had fallen ill.

On top of that, de Vries qualified at thirteenth, however, had had an opportunity to begin at pole eight due to several pole penalties. The 27-year-old Dutchman finished at ninth and scored 2 points at debut.

Russell praises de Vries saying his job was tougher than '20 cameo

George Russell, the 24-year-old who has been at fourth place in driver’s championship title race this season, hovering just 12 points behind Leclerc without any wins so far, has had a separate storyline on de Vries’ scintillating performance at Monza GP.

Meanwhile, speaking with a press agency later last week, addressing that de Vries’ job was tougher than his 2020 cameo with Mercedes, Russell said, “I think it was probably tougher for him, to be honest, than it was for me, because I was obviously a full-time race driver.

Equally as well for him, jumping from Aston Martin on Friday into a Williams, it’s a different car, the seating position is different. I remember when I was doing testing with Mercedes and Force India at the time, and driving F2, it took quite a few laps just to get used to the different feeling of how those cars reacted.

There's not a lot more to say. To score points on your debut in a Williams, it's pretty spectacular, no doubt”.
