A delighted George Russell beamed with joy on Saturday after securing a dramatic pole position for Mercedes at the Canadian Grand Prix, his first since the 2022 Hungarian Grand Prix and only the second of his career. 


He took pole at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve with a best lap in one minute and 12.000 seconds, equalled exactly by series leader and seven-time champion Max Verstappen of Red Bull who took second place because Russell had clocked his lap first. 


“This feels so good,” said Russell. “So much hard work back at the factory has gone into this—we said it in Monaco, but we hope this is the start of something for our season and I think it is!” 


It was Mercedes’ first pole success since seven-time champion Lewis Hamilton took pole for the Hungarian Grand Prix last year.
