F1 LIVE: Lewis Hamilton ready to miss race as Sergio Perez given Max Verstappen advice

Martin Brundle has called out the FIA’s decision to penalise George Russell at the Monaco Grand Prix, saying there was nothing else the Mercedes driver could do.

Russell was hit with a five-second penalty after colliding with Sergio Perez after running wide at Mirabeau.

The Briton slammed into the side of the Red Bull as he rejoined the circuit, prompting stewards to intervene.

Brundle said: “He would then take a five-second penalty for dangerously rejoining the track and taking a sizable hit from the lapped Perez, but actually, there’s nothing else a driver can do other than join, accelerate and hope, unless you want to patiently sit there to see if a marshal will wave you back into a space.”
