Frederic Vesti: I could compare myself to George Russell

Frederic Vesti took part in the youth tests in Abu Dhabi as part of Mercedes. The Danish racer set the third fastest time of the day, after which he gave a brief commentary to the team’s press office.

George Russell left work at the track early after crashing his car during the morning session.

Frederik Vesty (3rd): “I just completed the youth tests in Abu Dhabi. Incredible day – I only dreamed of this! I completed over a hundred laps and assessed eight tire compounds.

I learned a lot, partly thanks to George working with me. I was able to compare his telemetry with mine on long and short series. In the evening I received a new Soft kit and was able to evaluate the capabilities of the Formula 1 car in qualifying mode. The opportunity to drive this car to its limits was a dream come true for me. I liked it a lot!

I will now return to Brackley for simulator work so I can continue to progress and learn with the team.”

George Russell (20th): “Despite the accident, half the day behind the wheel turned out to be productive. We were able to learn a lot and make connections with the data we obtained during the season.

It’s been a long year and everyone is tired. The whole team is looking forward to a short break, but we are also looking forward to next season.”
