George Russell dismisses claims Lewis Hamilton is a ‘dirty driver’ after his controversial collision with Max Verstappen at Silverstone as the Williams ace insists there was no foul play and it was just a ‘racing incident’

George Russell rubbished claims Lewis Hamilton is a ‘dirty’ driver and insisted there was no foul play on behalf of the Mercedes star in his Silverstone crash with Max Verstappen. For Russell, who is attempting to hit all the right notes in a bid to win Mercedes’ favour to be Hamilton’s team-mate in 2022, the seven-time world champion is one of the ‘fairest’ racers on the track and should not be vilified for the Copse collision. Sometimes there is no right or wrong, it’s just a racing incident. McLaren’s Daniel Ricciardo, a former team-mate of Verstappen’s at Red Bull, agreed with Russell in that there was nothing ‘out of line’ in the collision.
