George Russell breaks down in tears as Mercedes driver wins first ever F1 race at Sao Paulo GP ahead of Lewis Hamilton

GEORGE RUSSELL choked back the tears after winning his first F1 GP – denying Lewis Hamilton what would have been a dream victory in Brazil. Russell, who had won the 24-lap sprint race the previous day, converted his pole to victory, while Hamilton was second after banging wheel with bitter rival Max Verstappen. When the Spaniard made his second stop of the race, that promoted Hamilton into third. Hamilton made it into second with a textbook over take of Perez into turn one on lap 45. When the safety car came in and the racing resumed on lap 60, Russell was able to hold off the threat of Hamilton. And he made it to the finishing line with Hamilton placed in second – despite running down in 10th place after his clash with Verstappen.
