A last-lap crash left George Russell disappointed. This great driver expected that he could make a good result. However, sometimes luck leaves us. At the end of the race, Russell was speechless. The fact that frustrates him the most is that he was close to his goal.

He even expected to win, but unfortunately for him, he clipped the wall and slammed into the barriers. “No words to be honest,” Russell said, as quoted by! “Such a long race, a physical race. Difficult to keep concentration.

Carlos was doing a great job backing the pack up and not allowing us to do the alternate strategy. I think we were half a car’s length from winning the race had I got past Lando when I had the opportunity, I think we would have been able to get past Carlos.

The last lap, just a millimetre lapse in concentration and it was game over. I’m just so sorry to the whole team”.

George Russell is heartbroken

F1 has proven to be 'unfair' many times. Even though sometimes you give your best, you have no guarantee that something won't distract you and that in the end, you will fail because of it.

Russell paid dearly for one small mistake. Mercedes is a team that has absolutely no luck this season. They still hope that next year they can have a car that will be ready to fight with the best. "It was a really challenging race.

The tyres were dropping off and you are pushing the limits. That’s how racing should be - you make a small mistake and you pay for it. It’s just heartbreaking after such a great weekend. The car felt great, qualifying was great, the race was great and we were bold with the strategy.

" The worst thing about Russell is he feels 'that he let the team down' “I feel like I’ve let myself and the team down. Racing… It’s tough, but what we like”.
