George Russell misses out on possible podium in Canada due to error in judgement

A rain-hit qualifying in Montreal promised the thrills and spills and it did just that. Fernando Alonso managed a magnificent P2 in his Alpine. However, one driver who made the wrong call and spelled an end to his qualifying was Mercedes driver, George Russell.

The Britton made the bold call to switch to slicks on a drying track. However, it was the wrong call as he went careering off at turn 2 and ended his shot at a front-row start. He would go on to qualify 8th.

Former F1 driver Jacques Villeneuve also had a few harsh words to share about Russell’s call. The Canadian said, “There was nothing brave about it, nothing brave about it – because on paper there was no way it was going to work.”

He went on to add, “When your car can be P4 or P5, that was really not a good call to make.”. However the Britton had a good drive on Sunday to make up the places to finish just short of the podium in P4.
