F1 LIVE: George Russell calls for Belgian Grand Prix to be cancelled after driver death | F1 | Sport

George Russell believes that the FIA should cancel this year’s Belgian Grand Prix if the conditions are unsafe at Spa-Francorchamps, where heavy rain is expected to fall this weekend.

“The two questions are, is Spa safe enough and then it’s the question of the conditions,” said Russell.

“The fact is motorsport will always be dangerous when you’re travelling at these speeds. It’s the visibility [in the wet], we just have no visibility whatsoever.

“The way I describe it, to try and give some perspective, is driving down the motorway in pouring rain and turning your windscreen wipers off. That’s genuinely how it feels in the cockpit.

“There’s not really any short-term solutions. I personally think Spa is safe enough. We just need to find a solution for visibility.”
