Six talking points from a crazy Brazilian GP

Turns out there’s a sting in this Formula 1 season’s tail after all. George Russell scored a thoroughly deserved and hard-earned maiden grand prix victory at Interlagos on Sunday – having claimed his first F1 win the day before in the ‘Sprint’ – by fending off team-mate Lewis Hamilton, as Mercedes-AMG finally broke its 2022 duck with a stylish 1-2.

But while Russell basked in his life-affirming moment, world champion team Red Bull was thrown into new recrimination as Max Verstappen’s petulant streak reared its ugly head as he point-blank refused to help his team-mate Sergio Perez in the Mexican’s chase for second in the championship. 

Selfish? Petty? Plain mean? His actions seemed to be all of those things.
