Russell leads home Hamilton for breakthrough Sao Paulo GP win


 George Russell claimed the first Grand Prix win of his Formula 1 career with a superbly controlled drive to victory at the Sao Paulo Grand Prix.

The Briton aced his getaway from pole and mastered two safety car restarts to grind out the win ahead of teammate Lewis Hamilton, securing Mercedes’s first win of the year and first one-two finish since 2020.

“This is just the beginning,” he radioed his team. “I’m so proud of all of you. I knew we could do this.”

Esteban Ocon finished eighth, which combined with Alonso’s points haul to put Alpine 19 points ahead of McLaren in the constructors standings after the British team failed to score.

Valtteri Bottas collected two points for Alfa Romeo with ninth ahead of Lance Stroll, who scored the final point in 10th.
