Williamses George Russell “crashed with Marcus Ericson” at Sunday’s Formula 1 Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix, meaning he cut the car against the wall behind the safety car while heating the tires, similar to Romain Grosjean’s 2018 Baku case.

The English junior, who also had a chance to score, was inconsolable after the relegation, sitting on the edge of the field, but even whispering himself on social media.
“I will never forget this day, this mistake. But I will learn from it, I will use it to my advantage. I am terribly sorry, I apologize to the whole team! I have no excuse, ”wrote Russell on Instagram, who in several interviews called slippage a starting mistake.
The six-time world champion himself responded to Mercedes-raised English on the community page:
“George, you gave it your all. You can make mistakes and it’s okay that it hurts a lot afterwards. I’ve made mistakes so many times that I don’t even count. You’re very good, man! Upside down, keep pushing, the next race is coming! ” Wrote the six-time world champion.
Grosjean, mentioned in the introduction, also sent a message of support:
“Dude, I know the feeling! It will take a while for you to forget, but you’re doing damn good anyway! Keep it up!”
