"It's just getting [to be] a joke at the moment. I've never been so inconsistent in my life. You look at the lap charts and you'd think I'm a bloody rookie or whatever. I felt like I was driving very similar lap after lap and it was like a yo-yo. I felt like an idiot. We need to seriously pull our fingers out."
The most remarkable thing about George Russell's stark words to Williams during a debrief at the 2019 British Grand Prix - immortalised in the ninth episode of the second series of Netflix's Drive to Survive - is that, in Formula 1 terms at least, he was a rookie.
The 2018 Formula 2 champion was just 10 races into his F1 career when that scene took place. After 11 more, he finished his first season in grand prix racing last in the championship, the only driver not to score, with team-mate Robert Kubica ahead thanks to his 10th place in Germany.
