George Russell has been dealt a three-place grid penalty for tomorrow’s British Grand Prix.
According to an investigation by the stewards, Russell forced Carlos Sainz off track in the F1 Sprint on Saturday.
The incident occurred at Turn 6 on Lap 1 of the Sprint when Russell locked up and went into the Ferrari of Carlos Sainz.
The Spanish Ferrari driver ended up in the grass, however, he was thankfully able to rejoin and continue his sprint, at the back of the field.
The stewards released their ruling explaining: “Cars 63 [Russell] and 55 [Sainz] approached turn 6 with Car 63 on the inside, in the middle of the track, and Car 55 on the outside.
“Car 63 locked the front brakes briefly and then understeered towards the edge of the track at the exit of the turn and contacted Car 55, which was forced off the circuit and onto the grass.
“Car 63 is judged at fault for the incident.”
