George Russell told to start OnlyFans ‘to satisfy needs of others’ by F1 rival

George Russell was encouraged to start an OnlyFans account 'to satisfy the needs of other people' by an F1 rival.

In the build-up to the Saudi Arabia Grand Prix last month, Alex Albon appeared on ‘The Fast and the Curious Podcast’ with Greg James. During the episode, he made a bizarre suggestion when posed with a question on how drivers can increase their online engagement.

“How to increase engagement? Cats and maybe OnlyFans. I reckon George [Russell] should honestly start thinking about it,” the Williams driver joked as the podcast hosts chuckled away. "He can have more professional content on his Instagram and then he can satisfy the needs of other people over there.

“That’s an untapped market so we just need to be open-minded.” The pair endured a disappointing Australian Grand Prix as neither man was able to complete the race.

Albon suffered a massive crash in the early stages as he lost control of his car at turn six and suffered significant damage. As a result, race officials suspended the action while marshals could clear up the debris from the track and remove gravel from the racing line.

The incident cost Russell big time, who subsequently dropped from the lead of the race, after passing pole-sitter Max Verstappen on the opening lap, to P7 as he stopped for new tyres under the safety car. Things went from bad to worse for the Mercedes star as he suffered from engine failure which erupted into a fire on lap 18, resulting in his first retirement since the 2022 British GP.

“Yeah, I guess when it’s not your day, it’s not your day, and pretty disappointed initially with the decision to red flag the race,” Russell said post-race. “Everything we’ve done this weekend has been good: qualifying was great, the start was great, the restart was great, the strategy decision was the right one. It’s just such a shame to be stood here right now.”

However, Russell said he took "pride" in Mercedes' start to the season that has seen them score points with both drivers in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia, while team mate Lewis Hamilton achieved his best finish of the season at Albert Park, crossing the line in second.

“I think Red Bull’s a little bit out of the picture at the moment. We need to continue focusing on ourselves," said Russell. “We’ve improved the car a lot, even though we haven’t brought any upgrades to the car, and we’ve got to take satisfaction in that we were clearly the second-fastest team this weekend.

“But then I also take pride in the fact that the performance we did throughout has been pretty spot on these last two weekends, in terms of everything we as a team and I felt as a driver we could have done, we did. And I guess that’s all you can do sometimes.”
