George Russell’s crash: Did Fernando Alonso play a role?
In a highly anticipated battle during the Canadian Grand Prix, George Russell of Mercedes expressed remorse for a critical error that ended his race and hindered his team’s performance. Russell’s attempt to apply pressure on Fernando Alonso backfired, resulting in a collision with the wall at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.
As the lights went out, Red Bull’s Max Verstappen expertly maintained his lead, while Russell’s teammate, Lewis Hamilton, seized the opportunity to overtake Alonso and secure second place. This placed Alonso as a barrier between the two British drivers, with Russell striving to find a way past the experienced Spaniard.
