Bottas out, Russell in for 2022?

The signs are growing ever clearer about the likelihood of a driver change at Mercedes for 2022. During Sunday’s broadcast of the Monaco GP, the commentator for Russia’s Match TV said a source has now told him that Valtteri Bottas is losing his seat. “I will not disclose the source,” said Alexey Popov, “but there is always a lot of talk like that in the paddock at Monaco. “They told me that Russell moving to Mercedes for at least two years, and not in Hamilton’s place, is already practically done.”. Popov speculated that Bottas may simply replace George Russell at Williams next year.
