As Russell himself said yesterday - he needs to nail that braking into Turn 1.
I was watching his onboards during FP1&2 and he was quite inconsistent on the breaking point there. Never seemed to carry a "Hamilton" level of speed through the first apex.

Vettel succumbs to the red mist once again. I suspect he was a little hot at being passed and made a decision to squeeze Chuck. Clearly a part of his head stops working when emotions start to do a job on him.

Because of this, he's gotta go. Much too childish to be piloting a rocket.
