Russell explains Williams PowerPoint pitch

Williams technical chief Paddy Lowe revealed earlier this month that Formula 2 points leader Russell had pushed to land a race seat with the team a year ago, which included making a presentation about what he could offer if he was signed.

Speaking in an exclusive interview filmed at Motorsport.com’s UK offices, Russell explained that his motivation was to approach his pitch for a drive “from a different angle” to get Williams’s attention.
