Mercedes driver, George Russell performed brilliantly as the Brit took pole position during the Canadian GP qualifying session. Absolute scenes unfolded in Montreal as the 26-year-old driver took the pole for the first time since 2022.

Following George Russell‘s performance, a video of a young Mercedes fan surfaced on the web. In the video, a child can be seen jumping and chanting Russell’s name in joy after the latter secured pole position.

Mercedes has not had a good start to the 2024 season and currently has the fourth-fastest car on the grid. But the new upgrades to their front wing from Monaco have shown promise for the drivers who performed well on Saturday.

Mercedes heads into the upcoming race with a strong car around the circuit of Montreal with good pace and handling. They will look to maximize their advantage in hopes of scoring their first podium and win of the ongoing season.

The car was feeling great all weekend and as soon as we got to qualifying, that kind of vanished for me. The grip just disappears for me. P3, I had plenty of pace in me, and then get to qualifying and the tyres won't work. Nothing had changed on the car.
Lewis Hamilton said after qualifying in Montreal

Lewis Hamilton has been outpaced by Russell in eight out of nine races this season, with the world championship winner’s woes appearing primarily in qualifying. The 39-year-old had a much better performance than his teammate in practice but failed to deliver during the intensely contested Montreal qualifying session.

The veteran Mercedes driver will now try his best to close the gap during the 70-lap Canadian GP. The new front wing on Hamlilton’s car has shown a huge performance improvement, which will be a key factor in the upcoming race.
