George Russell rued his clash with Max Verstappen midway through the Las Vegas Grand Prix that saw him pick up
Russell received a penalty for a collision with Verstappen, dropping him to eighth place. He claims he didn’t see Verstappen and wasn’t expecting the overtake. The ensuing debris caused a Safety Car deployment, which Russell believes hindered his race. He believes without the Safety Car, he could have continued and potentially achieved a podium finish. He expresses frustration with the season as a whole, stating that he can’t seem to catch a break. Despite the challenges, he notes that the Las Vegas Strip Circuit provided a bigger challenge than anticipated.
