George Russell is the target to get to Mercedes and according to various media, this will be made official this weekend in the Grand Prix of Great Britain. Thousands of journalists and European media firmly assure that the announcement will be made this Sunday at the circuit of Silverstone. However, Russell’s own words discredit these media: “Nothing will be announced.”
After thousands of sayings from the media and even from the pilots themselves, the current member of Williams ruled out the possibility of signing with Mercedes, at least until this weekend. This gives a great chance to Valtteri Bottas, who can improve his performance this weekend and thus open a door to renew his contract with Mercedes for next year.
George Russell himself stressed that this weekend will be one more on the calendar of the Formula 1. “I signed with Mercedes five or six years ago, that’s 100% true. As everyone knows, they take care of me, but in relation to my flyer for next year, there is nothing signed or stamped and nothing will be announced at Silverstone, I can make that known, “said the Briton, according to the Spanish media SoyMotor.com.
On the other hand, Russell left the door open for the Williams team to continue with them should he not be able to reach Mercedes in 2022. “The change in structure and everything that is happening at Williams is incredibly exciting. Obviously the team has finished last the last three years and I am confident that it will not be like that next year. Things are changing for the better. Things are lining up and positioning, ”commented the Briton.
“Jost capito (Team Leader Williams) is doing a fantastic job building the structure so that everyone is more efficient, more streamlined, and every decision made so far is the right one for the right reasons. I see no reason why Williams can’t fight to get back in front in the next few years, ”he added to finish.
