After looking set for his first points finish in his F1 career, it was not meant to be for Russell who crashed out behind the safety car towards the end of the race. You could hear a collective ‘NOOOOOOO’ come from fans around the world when his Williams hit the wall, so here are some of those reactions.

The stars seemed to align perfectly for George Russell. He said before the race that Imola was the best chance for Williams to score points. After retirements up the field for the likes of Ocon and Gasly, points were in reach. Then, Max crashes out of second place and Russell is promoted up into 10th place. Queue the celebrations. 

That was until Russell lost it behind the safety car and sent his Williams into the wall. 

Time for your reactions…

One person who found the whole thing amusing though was Marcus Ericsson…
