At the Las Vegas Grand Prix launch event, George Russell teased Sky Sports’ David Croft when he tried to ask Sergio Perez a question.
George Russell, Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez were on stage on Sunday at the Las Vegas Grand Prix launch event, and they were being interviewed by Sky Sports’ David Croft.
This led to an awkward moment when Croft tried to ask Perez a question. Russell decided to tease Croft as he pointed to Red Bull’s boycott of Sky Sports, due to comments made by reporter Ted Kravitz.
At this year’s United States Grand Prix, Kravitz stated that Lewis Hamilton was “robbed” at the 2021 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, which caused Max Verstappen and Red Bull to boycott the broadcaster at the 2022 Mexican Grand Prix.
“Now…” Croft started to ask Perez a question, when Russell interrupted.
“Sorry are you allowed to ask Red Bull drivers questions Crofty?” George said.

“Yeah I am tonight, I got special permission tonight, don’t start on me,” Croft replied.
“Are you allowed to answer?” Croft then asked Perez.
The Mexican seemed a bit confused, looked to the side and the said: “They’re not here.”
“They’re not here, it’s absolutely fine,” Croft then said.
“What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” said the other host.
“Exactly,” Russell said, with a smile.
