‘It was the most physical race I’ve ever experienced in Formula One’: Mercedes star George Russell claims Saudi Arabian GP had him pushing to the limit… despite having no on-track rivals on his way to a fifth-place finish

George Russell insists his drive to fifth place at the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was one of the most physically demanding races of his Formula One career. ‘I was all by myself throughout, pushing as hard as I could,’ Russell told Sky Sports. ‘[I would] probably say it was the most physical race I’ve ever experienced in Formula One.’. Meanwhile, Russell wasn’t the only driver suffering physically in Jeddah, with Pierre Gasly having suffered with severe intestine pain on his way to eighth. ‘The last 15 laps I’ve never had that much pain, I don’t know what happened in my intestine,’ he told Sky Sports. ‘The last 10 laps was like getting stabbed every left corner, the most painful laps I’ve had so I don’t know what’s happened.
