Wolff, Bottas slam Russell’s crash theory

Toto Wolff and Valtteri Bottas were united late on Sunday in the wake of the Finnish driver’s huge crash with Mercedes junior George Russell at Imola. “Perhaps if I was another driver, he wouldn’t have done that,” said Russell, alluding to rumours that he is in pole position for Bottas’ seat in 2022. Wolff also slammed Russell’s suggestion that Bottas had been dangerously aggressive because he fears losing his Mercedes seat to the British driver. “That’s bullsh*t,” Wolff said, while Bottas answered to the same question: “Unfortunately I left my tin-foil hat at home”. “I don’t want him (Russell) to prove anything to us,” the Mercedes team boss said.
