‘It is just a matter of time before we see a major incident’: George Russell says that current Formula One cars are a ‘recipe for disaster’ after another jolting qualifying session in Baku… and labels the breed ‘brutal’

George Russell has called the current breed of Formula One cars ‘dangerous’ and a ‘recipe for disaster’, after a jolting qualifying session around the fast Azerbaijan street circuit. ‘A lot of us can barely keep the car in a straight line over the bumps, and we are going round the last two corners at 200mph. ‘It is unnecessary with the technology we have that we are running a Formula One car at that speed, millimetres from the ground. ‘It is not a very comfortable position to be in in the car. He said: ‘It is bad for our backs, and it needs looking at.’. ‘We don’t have it as bad on the straights but through the corners we are trying to keep the car out of the wall.
