The George Russell – Alex Albon image on social media

The image starring Russell and Albon sprung up on social media where the duo sported Dolphins jerseys with their own respective F1 numbers, 23 and 63. By the looks of it, the image was captured minutes before the game had begun.

The game took place in the Northumberland Development Project, which is a mixed-use stadium in the heart of London. This massive structure is primarily called the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, which works as the home for the Premier League Football team, Tottenham Hotspur.

Interestingly, while the Dolphins were busy battling for a victory against the Jaguars in the Hotspur Stadium, Tottenham were simultaneously in the middle of a Premier League fixture against Newcastle United at the latter’s home ground.
