June 10 2019

The results of the 2019 Canadian GP would again see the ROKiT Williams finish with their drivers well down the order in 16th and 18th. George Russell would finish ahead of his team-mate Robert Kubica by a considerable margin but Robert was forced to make a second stop during the race where as George only pitted once. It was an uneventful race for both drivers but once again they were a considerable margin off the pace.

  ROKiT Williams Racing Canadian GP Race Review
Race Notes
• George Russell finished 16th and Robert Kubica 18th in the Canadian Grand Prix
• The Brit started 18th and Robert 19th on the grid, both on the medium Pirelli tyre
• George ran a one-stop race, pitting on lap nine for the hard Pirelli tyre
• Robert pitted twice during the race, on laps eight and 38 for the hard Pirelli tyres
Robert Kubica:
"Unfortunately, there is no magic. Yesterday the handling was difficult, but today was harder. I had no grip with high fuel, hotter conditions and longer stints. Overall grip is missing, we know it’s like this, so we are not able to push."
Russell George Russell:
"The car was feeling relatively nice to drive and we made the most of the package. We now need to bolt some downforce on it and hopefully we will find some lap time. Overall, I was pleased with my performance today and we made the most of the situation."
George Robson Dave Robson, Senior Race Engineer:
"The hottest day of the weekend threw up some new challenges and led to many drivers managing their car, be it for brake temperatures, tyre degradation, or engine temperatures. Fortunately for us we had most things under good control and were able to race cars around us. For George, this meant that he was able to race Magnussen and, until his retirement, Albon. For Robert, who struggled more this weekend, we opted to make a second stop and use our full complement of Prime tyres. We made some small improvements to the car this weekend, and we managed a difficult race well. The team continue to do a very good job with the pit stops and both drivers again completed well-constructed races and brought both cars home with no damage."
