In Imola, George Russell could have earned his first points of the season, but crashed a car while on the track with a safety car. The young racer wrote a letter to Williams employees, in which he apologized for his mistake.
“The only reason we could have earned points this weekend is 100% effort by each of you and constant work to improve the car,” quotes some lines from Russell’s letter to Racefans. – The result was possible, and I more than anyone would like to stay away from the wall and earn one or two points for the team.
We are racers and we are not here to play it safe. We drive onto the track to push the boundaries. Sometimes this leads to great disappointment, but if we let go of the gas pedal even for a second and start working at 95% of our capabilities, then we better stay at home. “
