GGeorge Russell has clinched his first Grand Prix victory in Formula 1.

Second was his highly decorated teammate Lewis Hamilton. International media write about the race:

Great Britain

The Telegraph: “Shortly after getting out of his car, George Russell put his head in his hands and sobbed to himself as he contemplated the magnitude of what he had just accomplished. Ever since his earliest days in King’s Lynn, Norfolk and driving across the country as part of the junior karting scene, he had always dreamed exactly of winning a Formula 1 Grand Prix.”

The Guardian: “Russell won after repelling a late attack from teammate Lewis Hamilton and claimed his first victory with an exceptional drive, showing nerves of steel and maturity under intense pressure. Meanwhile, at Red Bull, the doors and faces closed. What was Max Verstappen doing there?

“Daily Mail”: “It was George’s Day.”

“The Sun”: “George Russell has won his first F1 GP – and thus denied Lewis Hamilton the dream victory in Brazil.”


“Marca”: “You can’t ask for more from an F1 race.”

“Mundo Deportivo”: “Today George Russell clinched his first victory in Formula 1, confirming that Mercedes is back with Hamilton in second place.”


De Volkskrant: “The Brazilian Grand Prix was a relief for anyone who feared that next season could be as bland as it sometimes seemed this year. The race delivered more stories than all 20 races before it, which will no doubt be repeated sooner or later in 2023.”
