RUSS OF BLOOD
George Russell has insisted his crash with Valtteri Bottas at Imola is behind him.
The shunt cost an estimated £1million to fix each of the cars involved when the Williams and Mercedes were sent into the barriers a fortnight ago. And Russell has calmed his initially fierce criticism of Bottas.
He said: "I think first if we find ourselves fighting a Mercedes again, we'll be doing a very good job and we'll be in a very good position, so hopefully we do find ourselves in that circumstance.
"But no, definitely there's no rules of engagement, it's just a bit more of common sense.
"Lewis and Valtteri are team-mates to me as Nicholas is a teammate to me, so the number one rule as a racing driver is you don't crash with your teammate.
"That's behind us now, we live and learn, and we will move on."
