Ocon hopes brutal F1 spares George Russell

Esteban Ocon is hoping the sometimes “brutal” world of Formula 1 does not expel George Russell. On Saturday at Portimao, Russell qualified 14th – a huge eighth tenths ahead of Latifi in last place. “I’ve just read it in the press so I don’t know what’s happening in that team,” Ocon said in Portugal when asked about the Russell rumours. “It would not be fair if he’s not on the grid next year, but that’s Formula 1 – sometimes it’s brutal. What Ocon and Russell have in common, however, is their solid backing by Toto Wolff and Mercedes. I don’t know what will happen, but judging by his performances, he should be on the grid next year.”.
