Russell will ring Bottas to apologise after calling Mercedes team-mate ‘f***ing p****’ following 200mph Imola smash

GEORGE RUSSELL will make an apologetic phone call to Valtteri Bottas this week after their spectacular smash at Imola. Both drivers were unscathed, albeit shaken, but Russell, 23, was livid and angrily confronted Bottas, who flicked him the middle finger. He said: “Valtteri and I will talk afterwards and we will clear the air. “I mean it is in my intentions to clear the air with him. In the TV pen, Russell said: “Perhaps if it was another driver, he wouldn’t have.”. But the thought of Bottas holding a grudge was dismissed as ‘b*******’ by Wolff. Russell again corrected his comments after the red mist had later cleared and added: “There is no tension at all between Valtteri and I.
