F1 star George Russell slams the Australian Grand Prix in revealing conversation with tennis icon Novak Djokovic – and he doesn’t mince words about the sport’s punishing schedule

Formula 1 star George Russell has been caught on camera complaining about the Australian Grand Prix in a conversation with tennis ace Novak Djokovic. Djokovic then questioned Russell about the recovery timeframe for drivers following the trip down under. ‘We were meant to go to China next week so we’ve actually got a couple of weeks off. Djokovic went on to slam F1 bosses for not coordinating taking drivers’ needs into account with the sport’s schedule. ‘No, no, no, we’ve had a few conversations about this because we are left, right and centre,’ Russell says. Some of the calendar this year when you look at the geographics of it, Azerbaijan to Montreal, going to Australia for a weekend, it’s about as expensive as you could make it.
