British Grand Prix: George Russell says Formula 1 needs to learn from Zhou Guanyu crash

George Russell says Formula 1 needs to learn lessons from the crash in which Zhou Guanyu’s Alfa Romeo vaulted a barrier at Silverstone. Zhou was stuck in the car for some time after the accident as rescue crews struggled to reach him in such an unusual position. Russell called the crash “an incredibly scary incident” and added “it was horrible” for the fans close by. “We need think to avoid a car being stuck in such a fine gap,” he added. Yeah, something to learn,” said Russell, who is a director of the Grand Prix Drivers’ Association. Zhou came to rest on the far side of a barrier, resting on its side against some catch fencing protecting a grandstand after a multi-car first-lap pile-up.
