F1 Testing: George Russell fastest for Mercedes on 2019’s final day

George Russell gave Mercedes’ double title-winning car the perfect send-off by topping 2019’s final day of track running in Abu Dhabi.

Russell remains a Williams driver but is also a Mercedes junior and drove the W10 for the second time in testing this year, ending the two-day 2020 tyre test with a best time of 1:37.204.

The 21-year-old completed 145 laps, nearly the equivalent of three Abu Dhabi GP race distances.

Charles Leclerc was second quickest for Ferrari, two tenths behind, but lost track time after an incident on track in the afternoon. Lance Stroll third for Racing Point.
