Last lap crash dashes Russell’s podium hopes

Mercedes driver George Russell’s hopes of securing a second Formula One victory were dashed in a crash on the final lap of the Singapore Grand Prix. Despite having fresher tires than the eventual winner Carlos Sainz and second-place finisher Lando Norris, Russell’s chances of winning were ruined when he collided with the wall. Russell expressed his frustration, believing that he had a real opportunity to overtake Norris and potentially win the race. The crash allowed Lewis Hamilton to secure third place and earn valuable points in the overall driver standings. Russell was left bewildered by the incident, unsure of what had caused the crash. He speculated that it may have been due to a lack of concentration or the frustration of knowing that his chance of victory had slipped away. Despite the disappointment, Russell remained positive and felt that he was driving better than ever. The Singapore Grand Prix result elevated Hamilton to third place in the driver standings, although he still trailed behind Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez of Red Bull. Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff praised Hamilton’s performance and expressed sympathy for Russell, acknowledging the hard work he had put into the race. Russell described the feeling of missing out on victory as “the most horrendous feeling in the world” but also recognized the progress he had made as a driver.
