“Are you allowed to ask Purple Bull drivers questions?”

George Russell took a cheeky dig at Sky F1’s David Croft on the Vegas GP launch get together as he referred to Purple Bull’s boycott in opposition to the broadcaster.

The F1 Vegas GP launch get together had each Mercedes drivers George Russell and Lewis Hamilton, and Sergio Perez from Purple Bull, who had been interviewed by David Croft of Sky F1.

Russell’s trade with Croft went as follows:

“So…are you allowed to ask Purple Bull drivers questions, Crofty? Russell requested earlier than smiling over at Perez.

“Sure,” was Croft’s reply. “I’m tonight. I’ve obtained particular permission tonight, so don’t begin on me!”

Croft then requested Perez: “Are you allowed to reply?”

Perez: “They (his Purple Bull staff) are usually not right here!”
