F1, Mercedes in trouble: George Russell sanctioned
Weekend to forget so far for George Russell
George Russell will start from the last spot on the grid in the Singapore Grand Prix.The Mercedes driver, who was disappointing on Saturday in official qualifying, where he finished in 11th place due mainly to single-seater problems, has decided to change the power unit.
The engine change thus relegates the former Williams to last position and condemns him to a comeback race. Mercedes at Marina Bay is banking everything on Lewis Hamilton, who will start from third place behind Charles Leclerc and Sergio Perez.
