George Russell insists there’s no need to clear the air with Max Verstappen after the Englishman was called a ‘d***head’ by world champion during extraordinary bust-up in Azerbaijan

Max Verstappen and George Russell have not sought each other out to clear the air after their row in Azerbaijan last week. The pair clashed on track on the opening lap of the sprint race, causing the world champion to call the Englishman a ‘d***head’ in an angry confrontation afterwards. Russell defended his right to make the move, prompting Verstappen to deride his rival as ‘Princess George’ in a subsequent press interview. But speaking in Miami ahead of Sunday’s race at the Hard Rock Stadium, Russell said he now wanted to let the matter rest. Comments are made in the heat of the moment, but we move on.
