Half of the season arrives, and with it the stage of rumors and confirmations is the order of the day in the paddock of the Formula 1. However, this Saturday the media began to confirm the first bombing of the pilot market. The team Mercedes will put a new teammate to Lewis hamilton.
The announcement was expected, but not at this time. As confirmed by the medium Sky Sports, George Russell to land in Mercedes starting in the 2022 season. Many teams were waiting for the British and the German brand to confirm their plans for next year. However, so far neither party has ruled on the matter.
The results you are reaping Valtteri Bottas this season they weren’t the best. The Finn only had a chance to win at the Monaco Grand Prix, when a nut and an error by the Mercedes team, prevented him from finishing the test. However, last weekend in Baku, the Finn finished a long way from the points zone.
Russell, on the other hand, is awaiting the call of Toto wolff. A few weeks ago, the now Williams driver, had pressured Mercedes to comment on the matter. “I want to know before the summer,” commented George Russell. It should be noted that the British already had his opportunity at Mercedes, and he did it in an outstanding way, in the Sakhir Grand Prize.
Russell’s prayers seem to have made themselves heard. As confirmed by the Italian media, the official announcement of Russell’s transfer to Mercedes will be given at the British Grand Prix, at Silverstone. This race will be held from July 16-18, so it will take a few weeks for Mercedes to confirm a news that seems to be a fact.
