Wow, did you catch the end of the Australian Grand Prix? Talk about a heart-stopper. George Russell’s crash was nothing short of dramatic. Left everyone on the edge of their seats, I bet.

Now, here’s where it gets spicy. Fernando Alonso’s got some explaining to do. Yep, the stewards want a word with him. Was the Aston Martin driver the cause of all that chaos? Time will tell.

### Alonso’s Chat with the Stewards

So, picture this: last lap, Formula 1, Albert Park. Russell’s Mercedes? Practically doing a dance on its side. Not a pretty sight. And the culprit? Not so clear at first.

But then, the plot thickens. Post-race, the officials are all, “Let’s take a closer look at Alonso.” Why, you ask? Well, there’s this onboard footage. Shows Alonso easing off the gas way more than he did on the previous lap. Right before turn six. Eyebrows raised yet?

The stewards are scratching their heads, thinking, “Brake test?” Meanwhile, Alonso’s on the radio, all, “Guys, I’ve got issues here. Can’t hit the gas like I want to.” Could be his get-out-of-jail-free card. Or not.

He’s got a date with the stewards at 17:20. Local time, of course. Will he talk his way out of this one? Stay tuned.
