Haas mock George Russell after crash with Mick Schumacher

George Russell and Mick Schumacher came together at the 2022 Singapore Grand Prix.

The Haas Twitter admin aimed a dig at George Russell after the Briton’s collision with Mick Schumacher at the 2022 Singapore Grand Prix.

Russell encountered brake troubles during qualifying, which saw him eliminated in Q2, and he then started from the pit lane after changes were made to his car outside of parc ferme conditions.

The 24-year-old made slow progress up the order, and just as he was starting to gain some momentum, he made contact with the Alfa Romeo of Valtteri Bottas.

That sent him straight on at Turn Seven, and he was forced to start his recovery again.

The Safety Car came out later on in the evening with Yuki Tsunoda collided with the barrier, providing Mercedes with hope that they might be able to get both cars into the points, but Russell was in the wars again when he and Schumacher crossed paths.

The 24-year-old noticed that the German was pushing particularly hard to keep the position, so he took to the radio to say, “Schumacher is defending like it’s the race of his life, crikey!”

Russell then had a go heading into Turn One, but the pair came together, and the subsequent wheel-banging gave them both punctures.

Schumacher called his counterpart’s actions “unnecessary,” and Sky Sports commentator, Martin Brundle, agreed, telling Russell that he had “turned right into him.”

The King’s Lynn-born driver came home to finish 14th, while Schumacher ended up one position ahead.

The other Haas of Kevin Magnussen was given his third black and orange flag of the season after he picked up minor front wing damage following contact with Max Verstappen, and that ultimately ruined his chances of points as he finished 12th.

Russell’s team-mate, Sir Lewis Hamilton, meanwhile, crashed into the wall at Turn Seven while running fourth, and he had to settle for just two points in ninth.
