George Russell becomes director of Grand Prix Drivers Association aged just 23 to focus on safety of F1 drivers

GEORGE RUSSELL has become a director on the board of the Grand Prix Drivers Association. The Brit, 23, joins Sebastian Vettel and chairman Alex Wurz on the board, which was founded in 1961 to represent the drivers’ interests, particularly focusing on safety. And while Russell has only just started his third season in F1, he is ready to make his voice heard. “I was always quite vocal, I always quite enjoyed putting my opinion forward, and I guess having a voice for the drivers is something I’m quite proud of. “I guess Sebastian is sort of representing the older half of the grid; I’m potentially representing the younger half of the grid.”.
