When asked during the press conference ahead of the Portuguese Grand Prix if Wolff had spoken to him, Russell replied: “Yeah, of course, we have spoken extensively since the incident, but the contents of that will remain private, but you know – he’s been very supportive and very constructive.
“Our relationship has not been damaged at all following the incident – if anything, quite the opposite.
“Likewise, everybody at Williams, they’ve been incredibly supportive. They want me to attack (and) go for opportunities. We were proud to have been in that position.
“We were in 10th position and fighting for position on merit.
“We’ve got to be proud of the progress.”
