Vettel on Russell reaction: You can't please everyone

The German has defended his young peer's actions in the wake of a huge shunt between Russell and Bottas at Imola. The Williams man has since apologised for his conduct, but it raised questions once again over the role of emotion in motorsport.

Sebastian Vettel has given his opinion on George Russell's fiery response to his dramatic crash at the F1 Emilia Romagna Grand Prix in Imola.

Russell had a high-speed shunt with Mercedes driver Valtteri Bottas, leading to the young Brit subsequently confronting his rival and exchanging heated words in the aftermath. However, for Vettel, the public reaction to Russell's outburst is somewhat contradictory.

"I think first of all, emotions go both ways. They go positive and they go negative, otherwise, they wouldn't be emotions. I don't think they can swing only one way," Vettel told members of the media, including RacingNews365.

"The real question, I guess, is what do people want? You know, because on the one hand, they want emotions, and on the other hand, if they get emotions, they don't want emotions. And they think 'how can you? How dare you? Why did you do this? Why did you do that'?

"So I think the secret is, you can't please everyone and just be yourself. Obviously, there's limits to all actions that we do on-track and maybe off track. But yeah, I don't think you should worry that much."

Russell was contrite in the days that followed the incident, issuing a statement to his personal Instagram, where he apologised for his outburst and confrontation with Bottas.

During Thursday's press conference ahead of the Portuguese Grand Prix, he was in a similarly reflective mood.

"I sort of went against my own instincts to walk away and almost show a bit of emotion, which was probably a very poor judgment call in the heat of the moment," Russell claimed.

"That's why I felt like it was necessary for me to put that out on Monday morning, to apologize for my actions, because I do want to lead by example, I do want to be a role model."
