Mercedes AMG PETRONAS F1 Team Principal and CEO Toto Wolff says it was a colossal #### ### after a radio failure in the garage saw the wrong tyre’s put on George Russell’s car late in the Sakir Grand Prix at the Bahrain circuit on Sunday which saw Russell fall down the order and finish the race in ninth place and is under investigation for the mistake.

Russell started the race from second and made a great start to take the lead. Russell said after the race that it was a great opportunity and that it was racing.

A late puncture meant he fell down the order but he recovered and he said that the silver lining is that he scored his first points and he said he is happy that Sergio Perez got the victory as he deserved it.
