SAVING GRACE George Russell ‘thankful’ after F1 star saved by car halo in horror crash with Antonio Giovinazzi at Belgian GP

GEORGE RUSSELL said he was “very thankful” for the halo cockpit protection system after a dangerous crash with Antonio Giovinazzi. The wheel and suspension unit came dangerously close to the Brit but thankfully only did damage to his car. Russell said: “If I went to the right, that’s where Antonio’s car was, and at the left side of the track, I had a massive impact with the tyre. “But I have to say you feel much safer in the car now with the halo. When I saw this massive tyre coming towards me, it was quite scary to be honest. “So I’m very thankful that we have this halo on the car right now.
