In the round-up: George Russell says he almost came to a stop approaching the pit lane entrance in the Monaco Grand Prix while his engineers decided whether he should put or not during the Safety Car period.

What they say

I think we made the right call pitting early, I was really keen to do that. And I was quite fortunate because under the Safety Car I almost stopped on track and waited for the decision from the engineers before coming into the pit lane.

Once I got in clear air the pace was really strong. And that’s what I wanted, really, I wanted to just get out there and get in a rhythm and try to under-cut some people. Unfortunately there were some who were really slow out there holding us up.
