F1 rookie George Russell seeking release from pressure of the paddock

  F1 rookie George Russell seeking release from pressure of the paddock Every driver in Formula 1 needs a release valve, something to escape the pressures and demands of arguably the most physically and mentally demanding sport in the world. For Lewis Hamilton, it’s music and fashion, among other things. For Sebastian Vettel, it’s his family and the protective wall he has built around them. For Lando Norris, it’s sim racing. For George Russell, approaching the end of what has been a tough debut season with Williams, he is still figuring out what might serve him well. He concedes to being “a sporty guy” and, at this stage, he is leaning towards golf.

The 55-year-old posted a video and pictures on his Twitter feed of a helicopter water-bombing smoke-filled trees near a fence and driveway, commenting "Top shot son!"

Crowe had earlier confirmed that he was not in Australia and that his family was safe with friends. 

Bushfires are a common and deadly threat in Australia's hot summers, but the blazes have arrived earlier this year, spurred by dry conditions after three years of drought, and have already claimed three lives.

In a post showing burned ground and charred objects at his his property in northeast New South Wales state, Crowe said: "lost a couple of buildings, but overall very lucky so far. Chapel roof scorched."

He thanked those on the ground and said no livestock or horses had died.

"Let the chickens out and they are back, warm worms for breakfast!", the actor tweeted.
