Construction work on Jeddah Williams Formula 1 track weak in intermediate conditions – Russell

Wet tracks are not suitable for Williams, says RussellGeorge Russell says the rain that has fallen in recent races has highlighted a weakness in his FW43B’s performance. The Williams driver said the car is not competitive in intermediate weather conditions.

“If you push too much tire wear increases and when you get to the wettest parts of the track you just don’t have any grip anymore,” said Russell after Sunday’s Turkish Grand Prix. “But when we came back with new tires, they didn’t really seem to light up either.

“The tread is so much more [that] on the drier parts of the trail they weren’t suitable either. You put on the necessary. It’s been twice now that we are in these conditions, we struggled both times.

“We normally excel in wet or slippery conditions rather than wet. This intermediate phase, we have to think about it a little. “
