    I saw Williams is looking to offer George a 4 year deal. This would be a big mistake. It's looking like he will replace Bottas for 2022. Lewis has said he isn't ready to retire yet. And is excited to drive the new cars. After the 2021 rule change that has destroyed the advantage at Mercedes they need the absolute best drivers. Bottas / Russel is no match for Max Verstappen. They should give Russel the seat as a P2 driver to start off. Then see how that goes. Mercedes don't like any conflict or too much rivalry between team mates after how it was with Rossberg. They are already on the back foot so they must keep Lewis for now. Also. Mercedes as an image. Bottas is no good. He is not graceful in defeat and after 5 years he is just miserable and bringing Russel for 2022 shows the team is moving forward.

    If Bottas cannot be champion in Mercedes he will never be. But than Russell in Merck would be a menace to Lewis. Modern F1.

    Hmm, that age badly so quickly.... I'm not a hater, really like the guy! I call him a "monster" exactly because it's rare to see a young and very talented F1 driver that talks in a reasonable, mature way about himself and how he perceive the "environment" around him. Imagine what a guy with the mind in the right place so early in his F1 years could do in the next 10 years? But, hey, I guess he needed that... Maybe a wake up call.

Excited about everything moving forward. This sport is a good distraction from the chaos in the world. Shame all the politicians cannot learn something from Formula one... ie.. do a good job, be professional and work hard for their team! instead they cause distractions and are to busy pointing the finger! If our government were a F1 team we wouldn't put up with them! Go F1 and great to see you all chatting together.. :))

    Russell is correct in that he says we will need to see what the "Pecking order" will be like at the end of 2021 season. There are a lot of young drivers in F1 now who are performing well and we need to see which ones show their merits as the season progresses. There are no "Free passes" for a seat in the leading teams and also no guarantee that there will be an empty seat.

    I'm so looking forward to having George in Mercedes. I think this year might be close, and if Hamilton is leaving soon the team certainly need to pick things up with a young driver like George and give him the chance to race against Lewis and learn from him, get to know the team, etc. just so he can be prepared. I'm certain if he gets a chance he might be a future world champion

Russell proved its more of the car than the driver. I didn’t agree with that until it happened. Imo, max , George and others are as fast as Hamilton. BaDaBoom.

    The sooner toto is out of f1 the better, he has his finger in too many drivers and too many teams, all which conviently end up making him cash . We all know he is full of BS every race we hear it and he inherited a team and budget that was already established. He's better suited to ferrari I'm sure he could off load some merc data to them whilst conviently investing at the same time. The guy is in f1 for himself and will hold everything at arms length including Russel for as long as possible. His only true aly is Lewis and they will leave together very happy whilst leaving a drove of pissed off screwed over merc drivers in their wake.

    I think the push remark from the team leaders just shows how unorganized they were before. Pushing a team to be the best isn't something new and it's something that all the top teams have in common, so for a team to say a driver asking for the 110% is somehow off-putting, they need to find a new job because unless your pushing you'll never make it.

    I think he’ll get that seat in 22’ Lewis is a great driver but not the best, he’s certainly past his prime. The only thing keeping him at the top is that car. If George doesn’t get a Mercedes seat in 22, he’ll look somewhere else and Toto will nip that in the bud as soon as possible so I don’t think he’ll want Lewis next season, at the moment Lewis suits the needs of Mercedes that’s the truth I’m afraid but I hope George gets that seat in 22’
