Brundle felt for Russell in not being able to challenge more at the front after nabbing pole on Saturday. And the Sky Sports pundit feels that Mercedes are “pretty confused” each weekend on how to get the best out of their W13.
“Russell would have been very disappointed in third having been caught and passed by Hamilton on a different strategy, but he played his part for the team very well out front,” he added. “They still seem to be pretty confused as to why the Mercedes works sometimes better than others and they had a wild weekend trying to harness it.
“If they can’t work out the problem then there’s no point in anybody else having an opinion as to why.”
