George Russell: ‘Silverstone gives you a special feeling, goosebumps’

Once more he will set off with almost the entire field in front of him, knowing they will swiftly leave his recalcitrant Williams behind, but it will not mar this young man’s enjoyment of his first British Grand Prix one bit. “I am massively looking forward to it,” he says. “It is the best track on the calendar.”

As part of a testing season it is another race forging the young driver who may yet find himself alongside Lewis Hamilton at Mercedes in the future.
